At the Lost Lake Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida, Charlie Woods couldn't secure a spot to compete in the "Monday qualifier" for the Cognizant Classic, a PGA Tour event scheduled from February 29 to March 3, despite a gallery of onlookers.

The 15-year-old son of the Californian champion finished at 110th place, with a score of 86 (+16), in the pre-qualifying round, thus bowing out of contention. His scorecard showed no birdies, with four bogeys, two double bogeys, and a disastrous "12" on the 7th hole (par 4), where he dropped eight strokes.

Nonetheless, it was a valuable experience for him, shared alongside Olin Browne Jr., the son of Olin Browne, a three-time PGA Tour winner.

Tiger Woods, biography

Eldrick Tont Woods, better known as Tiger Woods, was born on December 30, 1975, in Cypress, California.

He is an American golfer. Regarded as one of the greatest golfers of all time, Tiger Woods is one of the most popular athletes of the early 21st century. With 15 major tournament victories, he revolutionized the world of golf with his athletic achievements and by attracting a new audience to the sport.

Showing promise from a young age, Tiger Woods began playing golf at a very early age and achieved exceptional success in all junior categories. As an amateur, he was closely watched for his extraordinary abilities and turned professional at the end of the summer in 1996.

Winning the 1997 Masters, he became the world number one less than a season after turning professional. Dominating most of the 2000s, various physical issues with his knees and back forced him to reinvent his game. A commercial icon and the face of Nike, Tiger Woods secured numerous lucrative contracts off the golf course, making him one of the wealthiest athletes of the 2000s despite scandals tarnishing his personal life and marriage in 2009.

In April 2019, at the age of 43, he achieved the feat at Augusta of winning a 5th Masters and his 15th career major title, eleven years after his last major victory. On May 6, 2019, he was decorated by United States President Donald Trump with the highest American civilian distinction, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. On March 8, 2022, he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
