The son of the most famous golfer in the world has yet to be quite ready for the big stage.

Charlie Woods failed to qualify for the 2024 U.S. Open and play alongside his father, Tiger Woods. He shot an 81 in the U.S. Open local qualifier at The Legacy Golf & Tennis Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida. However, that score placed him only tied for 61st out of 74 participants, falling well short of the top five placement needed to advance to the final qualifying round, which is held on May 20.

Charlie, 15, had a similar scenario where he had a chance to play alongside his father earlier this year. In February, he participated in a Cognizant Classic qualifier at Lost Lake Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida. He also failed to advance, shooting a round-of-16 over-par 86. Charlie has yet to play a major tournament with his father, who is tied for first all-time in PGA Tour wins.

Charlie following in his father’s footsteps on the golf course is hardly surprising. He and his sister, Sam, were caddying for Tiger at a Masters contest back in 2015 and were also present for their father’s induction into the Golf Hall of Fame in 2022. From a very young age, Charlie has been submerged in the golf world, and that extends to the three appearances he has made with Tiger at the PNC Championships in 2020, 2021 and 2022. While the tournament is unofficial, it showcases golfers with their children and often can foreshadow the youngsters later on attempting a professional career themselves, much like Charlie has.
