The event marked Tiger’s first time on the green after spending months rehabilitating serious injuries sustained in a car accident earlier this year.
The pair competed together last year, earning seventh place in the competition. Prior to the event, Tiger tweeted: “While it’s been a long and busy year, I’m very excited to finish it off competing in the @PNCchampionship with my son Charlie.”
Last year, the athlete said they were there there are no words to describe playing with his son at the tournament, sharing: “The fact that we were able to live this experience together is a memory for a lifetime”.
On several occasions, Charlie has mirrored his father’s stance and his signature swag. In an interview with Golf Digest in November 2021, the highest paid golfer of all time shared advice he once gave his son.
“I would watch him play and he’s doing great, he has a bad hole, he loses his temper, his anger leads him to another pitch and another pitch and it gets worse,” explained Tiger. “I said, ‘Son, I don’t care how angry you get. Your head could explode for what I care, as long as you’re 100% committed to the next hit. This is all that matters. The next shot should be the most important shot of your life. It should be more important than breathing. Once you understand this concept, I think you will improve. ‘ And while the round went on all summer, he has improved a lot. “
