Charlie Woods competed Thursday at the Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches’ pre-qualifier, his first attempt at qualifying for a PGA TOUR event. Woods, son of 82-time PGA TOUR winner Tiger Woods,┬áhas competed alongside his dad in the past four PNC Championships, but never as an individual in an event tied to TOUR-sanctioned competition. The top five and ties at Woods’ pre-qualifying site, Lost Lake Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida, will advance to Monday’s open qualifier (Lost Lake is one of four pre-qualifying sites). The top four from the Monday qualifier will advance to the Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches, contested next Thursday-Sunday at PGA National’s Champion Course in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Woods arrived at Lost Lake Golf Club more than an hour before his 7:39 a.m. tee time. He began work on the putting green, utilizing two mechanical pencils and a string, mainly focused on lag putting, before a quick range session. Sporting a blue pullover, black pants and black cap, Woods competed in a twosome with longtime mini-tour pro Olin Browne Jr., son of three-time TOUR winner Olin Browne. Woods struggled at points in his pre-qualifying round, but he appeared to relish the experience of competing in a TOUR pre-qualifier for the first time. He was supported by his mom Elin, good friend and caddie JJ (utilizing a cart), and dozens of Hobe Sound locals. Two of the four pre-qualifying sites were contested Wednesday. Advancing from Park Ridge Golf Club: Beau Titsworth, Austin Lemieux, Bryce Emory, Ryan Quinn, Larry Blatt and Keith Greene. Advancing from the Boca Lago site: Griffin Barela, Andrew Garner, Chris Wilson, Jake Hibbert, Chris Francoeur, Logan Perkins, Trevor Johnson, Julius Boros, Maximilien Sturdza, Parker Gillam and Nicholas Cummings.
