Charlie, the son of Tiger Woods (49, U.S.), the “golf emperor,” will challenge the PGA Tour.

The PGA Tour announced that “Charlie was listed in the first preliminary round of the Cognizant Classic held in Florida on the 22nd (local time).” He added, “To qualify for the tour, you must have at least a handicap 2. Charlie was qualified by the Florida Golf Association for a handicap index of +3.” It is the first time for Charles to participate in a regular competition.

Since 2019, Charlie has participated in the PNC Championship, a family golf event, four times with his father Woods, showing off his exciting shots. Last December, he hit a long shot of 300 yards. He also captured the attention of golf fans by winning a junior competition.

The Cognizant Classic will be held at Palm Beach Garden in Florida for four days from the 29th. Until last year, the competition was “Honda Classic” sponsored by Honda in Japan, but the name of the competition has been changed since this year as it was sponsored by Cognizant, an American IT company.

Charlie needs to be in the top 25 in the first round of qualifying to qualify for the tournament, and he needs to be eligible to qualify next Monday. He also needs to be in the top four in Monday’s qualifying round to qualify for the tournament.

The first preliminary round, which will be held in 18 holes, will be held in four locations. More than 100 people are expected to compete for four tickets for Monday’s preliminary round, which is expected to lead to fierce competition.

Charlie will make his first PGA Tour appearance at the age of 15 years and 21 days if he advances to the finals, about a year earlier than Tiger Woods made his first appearance at the 1992 PGA Tour Nissan Los Angeles Open at the age of 16 years, 1 month and 28 days.
