Charlie Woods

Charlie Woods, the 15-year-old son of legendary golfer Tiger Woods, will not get the chance to play in the U.S. Open this year.

The youngster shot a nine-over 81 and failed to advance to the final round of a local qualifying tournament played at The Legacy Golf & Tennis Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Per Cameron Jourdan of Golfweek, the day started off rough for Charlie. He opened with a bogey on the first hole and double-bogeyed the second. He managed to build some momentum with a birdie on the fifth, but a double-bogey on the sixth set him back, and he finished the front nine at four-over 40.

Charlie failed to record another birdie on the back nine and stumbled with three bogeys and another double-bogey.

Only five players will advance to the final qualifying out of the 84-player field, according to the PGA Tour.

Charlie played in a pre-qualifier for the PGA Tour’s Cognizant Classic earlier this year, but he shot 86 and failed to advance. It was his first attempt at qualifying for a PGA Tour event. He was also a member of his high school’s state championship golf team in the fall.

Charlie was seen alongside his father a couple of weeks ago during the Masters, helping the 48-year-old with a swing drill. The father-son duo has played together in the PNC Championship in each of the last four years, finishing as runner-up in 2021 but never winning the event.

Jourdan noted that Charlie will likely attempt to qualify for the U.S. Junior Amateur at Oakland Hills or the U.S. Amateur at Hazeltine later this summer.
