New Tiger on the prowl: Charlie Woods already picking up wins for Benjamin boys golf

Golf fans who have been following the growth of Charlie Woods, the son of Tiger Woods, may have been wondering where and if the golf star-in-the-making would play at the high school level.

The Benjamin School, located in Palm Beach Gardens, was the lucky winner and has reaped benefits from his prowess already.

After clinching the West Coast High School Tournament, hosted by the South Florida PGA Junior Tour, on Saturday afternoon, the Buccaneer boys golf team is well on its way to what it hopes will be a fourth state championship with the 14 year-old freshman prodigy.

Charlie was the 36-hole, two-day tournament’s team individual champ, shooting a final score of 102 at Cypress Woods Golf and Country Club in Naples.

Seniors Aiden Miller and Tyler Bruneau shot 107 to tie for second and Luke Wise turned in a 111 for fourth on the team scorecard. Travis Robertson, another Benjamin senior, shot 2 over par before withdrawing as weather conditions saw the tournament cut short.

Charlie’s performance marks his second low-round outing, following the Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship Last Chance Florida Regional, held at the Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills two weekends ago. That’s also where Benjamin will head for the high school state championship tournament later this fall.
