Charlie Axel Woods, the 14-year-old son of golf legend Tiger Woods, is making waves in the golfing world. Charlie secured his place in the Notah Begay III National Championship after a triumphant performance in the second round of the 14-15 age division during the Last Chance Regional. What made this achievement even more special was the presence of Tiger himself, who took on the role of caddy for his son.
The father-son duo shared a unique and touching moment on the golf course, creating memories that will undoubtedly last a lifetime. Charlie expressed his joy at having his father by his side, describing the experience as “great” and highlighting their ability to focus on the game, taking it one shot at a time.
Tiger, a golfing icon at 47, contributed not just as a proud father but also as a mentor. He provided guidance to Charlie, emphasizing the importance of focusing on the present shot. Charlie acknowledged his father’s influence, mentioning how Tiger “puts me in my place” when needed.

The victory secured Charlie’s spot in the upcoming tournament at Koasati Pines at Coushatta Casino Resort in Louisiana, scheduled between Nov. 4-6. The announcement of this achievement resonated not only with golf enthusiasts but also with fellow competitors and their families. Shane Croft, who had the privilege of caddying alongside Tiger, described the experience as “epic” and beyond words.
This special bond between Tiger and Charlie is not new, as the two have been seen sharing the golf course since 2020. The source shared in 2020 that Charlie cherishes these moments with his dad, and it has become a significant bonding activity for the father-son pair.
Tiger Woods, who shares Charlie with ex-wife Elin Nordegren, expressed pride in his son’s accomplishments. He emphasized that Charlie is his “own person” and can choose his path in life, be it in golf or elsewhere.
