Tiger Woods has called in his son Charlie Woods to help him prepare for this week's US Open at Pinehurst in North Carolina. 

Woods, 48, is making his first competitive start since he limped to a MC at last month's US PGA at Valhalla following rounds of 72 and 77. 

But after four weeks out of PGA Tour action, Tiger Woods has rocked up nice and early for US Open preparation.

Woods scouted Pinehurst No.2 with his new caddie Lance Bennett last week, and he was seen out on the practice range and the course with his young cub Charlie on Sunday.

Charlie was once again back out there on the course with Tiger on Monday, and it is understood he will be helping him in his practice all week. 

Woods does not have a golf coach in 2024, which is another reason why he is happy to have his son work alongside him.

Charlie has been wearing his dad's new 'Sun Day Red' apparel at Pinehurst No.2. 

Tiger also brought Charlie along to help him at The Masters in April and US PGA in May.

Charlie has often been seen holding a golf club out in front of Tiger as he swings through, identical to the drill he used to work on with his former long-time coach Butch Harmon back in the day.

Tiger claims the goal of this drill is to prevent his arms from flinging too far out to the right. 

Charlie has also been helping Tiger out on the short game area.

On Monday, they were reportedly working on some bump-and-run shots. 

Woods' son Charlie Woods is a very accomplished golfer with a +3 handicap per the Florida State Golf Association. 

Charlie has chalked up two victories on the main junior circuit in his career, with his highlight win being the 2023 Notah Begay III Junior Golf Championship (14-15 Division). 

He has also regularly excelled when competing alongside Tiger Woods at the annual PNC Championship. 

Charlie grabbed state championship honours with his school, Benjamin Boys, capturing the Florida High School Athletic Association Class A State Championship earlier this season. 

His mother Elin Nordegren attended the presentation of his state championship ring, alongside father Woods.

According to the AJGA, Charlie has only played in one official junior event so far this season.

He finished T32 at the Will Lowery Junior Championship.

Woods played a Monday practice round alongside Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas at Pinehurst No.2. 

Check out some snaps from their Monday practice: 

Woods is a 15-time major champion.

He has won the US Open three times - 2000, 2002 and 2008.

Woods is making his first start in a US Open since missing the cut at Winged Foot in 2000.

It's not been the best start to 2024 for Woods with three very disapponting results by his own high standards. 

He did make the halfway cut at The Masters in April, setting a new consecutive cuts record at Augusta National in the process, but he would go on to finish dead last (60th) of those that made the weekend. 

Woods was forced to withdraw from his first competitive outing of the season during the second round of the Genesis Invitational.

He cited illness for his decision to WD. 

Woods' playing schedule has been limited in 2024 as a result of still recovering from ankle surgery last season. 

That was after his horror car crash in February 2021. 

Woods admits he can still 'play all the shots' but struggles to walk around all 72 holes.
