“Today, both walked like penguins on the course.” Woods and his son, who are equally ill, failed to achieve the come-from-behind victory they had hoped for at the PNC Championship (total prize money of $1,085,000), an event of the PGA Champions Tour.
Tiger Woods (47, USA) and his son Charlie (13) scored 7 under par 65 strokes in the final round of the tournament held at the Ritz Carlton GC (par 72) in Orlando, Florida, USA on the 19th (Korean time). The Woods father and son, who caught 1 eagle and 7 birdies and committed 2 bogeys, finished the tournament tied for 8th place with Team Jordan Spieth and Team Mark Omera (above USA) by hitting a total of 20 under par and 124 strokes over the two days.
Both Woods and his son, who tied for second place by two strokes after hitting 13 under par the previous day, could not overcome a leg injury. Woods, who was seriously injured in a car accident last year, returned to the field after a difficult rehabilitation, but still has difficulty walking the course. He recently suffered from plantar fasciitis, so he rode a cart during this competition. His son, Charlie, sprained his left ankle prior to the tournament and missed his swing.
Woods emphasized the meaning of participating in the tournament rather than the result, saying, “The biggest harvest from this tournament is a sense of solidarity.”
The victory belonged to the Singh father and son. Vijay Singh (Fiji) and his son Kas Singh shot 13 under 59 on the day, sweeping 1 eagle and 11 birdies. The Singh father and son, who shot 59 the previous day, won with a total of 26 under par and 118 strokes on both days. It is the first time in the history of the tournament that at-bats under 60 for two consecutive days. Singh, who won the championship prize money of 200,000 dollars (approximately 260 million won), said, “Winning with his son was the pinnacle of my golf life.” Like me, I always wanted to win.” 안전놀이터
