Charlie Woods Wins Junior Am Qualifier But USGA Rule Prevents Tiger From Caddying At Championship

Charlie Woods picked up an invite to the Junior Am Championship At Oakland Hills Country Club this week after winning a qualifying event in Florida. He bested 73 other players in the field, finishing at one-under on the day.

Many hoped that meant seeing Tiger Woods make an appearance on the bag in his coming championship tournament. Unfortunately, a USGA rule prevents his father from caddying!

The qualifier took place on Wednesday at Eagle Trace Golf Club in Coral Springs, with Woods being the only player to end his day below par. He beat runner-up Matthew Marigliano by a single stroke to land the top honor.

The top four players in that qualifying field landed invites to the Junior Am Championship, but Charlie Woods‘ name obviously provides the biggest draw. The son of legendary golfer Tiger Woods, he can often be seen with his dad as his caddie – which comes in handy when attempting to rack up tournament wins.

That seemingly disqualifies Tiger from walking alongside his son for that championship event, which is set to be held in Michigan from July 22-27.

While he may not be able to caddy, you can bet he’ll be in the gallery.
