Tiger Woods to Charlie Woods at PNC Championship: "Just get in the cart!"

Tiger Woods and Charlie Woods came up short at the PNC Championship as they finished six shots behind champions Vijay Singh and his son Qass.

Woods, 46, and Charlie, 13, were only two strokes off the leaders going into the final round on Sunday at Florida's Ritz-Carlton Golf Club. 

Tiger and Charlie turned up ready for battle rocking the now ever so familiar red and black combo made famous by the 15-time major champion.

They got off to a solid start and were 4-under par through the opening five holes after Charlie made an eagle at No. 5. 

Disaster struck at No. 7 for the Woodses as both players hit their tee shots wayward, leading to a bogey.  

They made the turn in 33 which was five shots worse than their opening round where they carded a 13-under 59. 

Tiger and Charlie made birdie at 10, 12 and 13 but in the end they ran out of holes. A bogey at 17 was meaningless as they finished on 20-under.

The shot of the day came from Charlie at 18. He topped his approach but the ball ran up perfectly onto the green, just avoiding the greenside bunker. 

He joked: "Perfect, I meant to do that!" 

Tiger then chimed in: "Just get in the cart!"

Charlie cleaned up a birdie putt at the par-5 18th as the pair carded a 65 and then embraced.

In the end it was Singh, 59 and Qass who won the 2022 PNC Championship after finishing on 26-under. 

The duo shot an opening 59 on Saturday and equalled that total on Sunday, highlighted by a closing eagle. 

Defending champions John Daly and his son John Daly II put up a spirited defence and finished second on 24-under. 

Justin Thomas - who reportedly met with Greg Norman over LIV Golf - also finished second with his father and coach Mike Thomas.

Tiger will now spend his Christmas resting before making a charge for the majors in 2023. 

He previously indicated he was targeting playing one or two more tournaments other than The Masters, Open, U.S. Open and PGA Championship.

Tiger will hope to be involved at the Genesis Invitational at Riviera in February, but it will depend on how he recovers from plantar fasciitis.
