HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods’ 14-year-old son has accomplished something his father never did: Played on a golf team that won a high school state championship.
Charlie Woods and his Benjamin School team finished one shot ahead of First Academy in the two-day Florida High School Athletic Association championship that ended Wednesday.
With his father watching, Charlie Woods shot 78-76 with a total of 154 to finish in a tie for 26th place. His team’s total score was 602, led by Jake Valentine, who finished in a tie for eighth place with a score of 148. It was Valentine’s birdie on the 17th hole that gave The Benjamin School the lead, and he finished with a decisive par.
Alexander Weinberg of Pine Crest won the boys’ individual division with a 143, and Florida Atlantic won the girls division by seven shots over First Academy. First Academy’s Mi Li won the girls’ singles title with a total of 136.
