In SummaryTiger and Charlie Woods lost in a close match against another famous father-son duo in golf.
Tigers Woods was back on the prowl, trekking through the fairway and the green at the PNC Championship. But this time, Tiger had his cub with him, Charlie.
The father-and-son duo finished in second place at the PNC Championship at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday.
Woods and Charlie, 12, finished 25 under par.
First in the event were John Daly and his son John Daly II. The two, ages 55 and 18, respectively, scored 27 under par.
John Daly II plays golf at the University of Arkansas, his father’s alma mater.
The Daly duo also earned $200,000 in prize money.
But for Woods and Charlie, getting back in the action and having fun on the course together was the ultimate prize after fighting his way back from a near fatal car accident in February.
Woods was traveling at a high rate of speed as he attempted to make a tight turn down a roadway hill in Los Angeles. He lost control of his SUV and drove off the road.
He had to be extricated from that SUV with the Jaws of Life. He suffered open fractures to both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula in his right leg
In November, Woods told fans he may be done playing golf competitively after his horrific crash.
“I think something that is realistic is playing the tour one day—never full time, ever again—but pick and choose, just like Mr. [Ben] Hogan did. Pick and choose a few events a year and you play around that,” Woods said in Golf Digest. “You practice around that, and you gear yourself up for that. I think that’s how I’m going to have to play it from now on. It’s an unfortunate reality, but it’s my reality. And I understand it, and I accept it.”
But now, Woods said the crash is in the past.
“This year’s been a year I would like to turn the page on,” he said “It’s been full of some tough memories and some tough times, but also some great times, too. But, again, it would be nice to turn the page.”
