Tiger Woods son limping
Tough start to the week for Charlie Woods, and it had nothing to do with his golf game.
While warming up for Friday’s pro-am at the 2022 PNC Championship at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Charlie rolled his ankle and is hurting a bit.
During his round, Charlie had a bit of a limp and looks uncomfortable after hitting some of his shots.
Cameras showing Friday’s pro-am round captured Charlie and father Tiger Woods walking away from the 11th green, and they both had a noticeable limp.
The PNC Championship gets underway Saturday. Team Woods goes off with Team Thomas, with Justin playing with father Mike, at 12:02 p.m.

Woods and his son, Charlie, were both noticeably limping during Friday’s pro-am at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club.
Tiger said his 13-year-old son sprained an ankle but will be ready to go when they tee off in Saturday’s first round with Justin Thomas and his father, Mike, at 12:17 p.m. ET.
Tiger Woods, who is still recovering from injuries suffered in a car wreck outside Los Angeles in February 2021, will be able to use a cart in the 36-hole scramble.
“You know, I don’t really care about that,” Woods said, of the possibility of delaying his recovery. “I think being there with and alongside my son is far more important, and [getting] to have a chance to have this experience with him is far better than my foot being a little creaky.”
It will be the third appearance in the event for Tiger and Charlie Woods; they finished seventh in 2020 and were runner-up by 2 shots to John Daly and his son last year.
“Any time I get a chance to spend time with my son, it’s always special,” Tiger said. “And to do it in a competitive forum, the last couple of years have been magical, and to be able to do it again, we’re looking forward to it.”
“I’m doing everything,” Tiger said. “It’s frustrating because each and every day I have to do it, and then on top of that it’s trying to sleep in the damn boot, it’s no fun. My left leg is bleeding sometimes because the boot hits it.
Woods said his closest friends on the PGA Tour are urging him to slow down. He was forced to pull out of the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas earlier this month because of plantar fasciitis.
