Tiger Woods and son Charlie make IMPRESSIVE start to PNC Championship

Tiger Woods and his 12-year-old son Charlie made a great start to the PNC Championship, firing a first-round scramble score of 10-under-par.

After all of the anticipation as well as their participation in the Pro-Am on Friday, the popular Woods duo took to the course in Orlando and shot a score of 62.

They birdied three of the opening four holes and on the par-3 4th hole, Charlie provided one of the highlights of the day. He rolled in a fantastic birdie putt and lifted his putter in celebration.

It was reminiscent of his father from previous years on the PGA Tour. On the same hole, playing partner Justin Thomas almost made a hole-in-one.

Team Woods reached the turn at 4-under-par and at this stage on Saturday, they were seven shots behind Stewart Cink and his son Reagan who went on to shoot a brilliant 59.

They added birdies on the 10th and 11th holes and then on the 15th hole, Charlie rolled in yet another impressive birdie putt to reach 9-under-par for the tournament. This also capped off a stretch of three consecutive birdies.

Tiger and Charlie added their 10th birdie of the day at the 18th hole to finish on 10-under-par. They are only three shots behind the Cinks with 18 holes remaining on Sunday.

Thomas and his father Mike, who are the defending champions of the tournament from 2020, carded a great score of 12-under-par to sit in tied second place with John Daly and his son John II.

Six-time major champion Lee Trevino, who shared a driving range session with Woods and his son on Friday evening, also birdied the final hole to finish on 8-under-par with his son Daniel.

Tiger and Charlie are sat in tied fifth place alongside five other pairs including nine-time major winner Gary Player and his grandson Jordan.
