The golf world is brimming with talent. Be it the 15-year-old Miles Russell who is currently ranked number 1 on the Rolex AJGA Rankings or Gordon Sargent who is known driving the ball at an average of 185-190 mph. No doubt the both rising stars have been dominating the headlines in the gentleman’s game for a while now. However, now, it appears Charlie Woods has also decided to make his move, as recent reports indicate he is all ready to attempt a hand at playing in Pinehurst No. 2.

A tweet was shared by TWLEGION, a fan page dedicated to the legend of the game Tiger Woods, on their X handle (formerly Twitter), mentioning the same. As per the report, the 82-time PGA Tour champ’s son will attempt to qualify for the major championship, the 2024 U.S. Open at Pinehurst. What’s more, he is also set to reportedly tee it up on April 25, Thursday, at a local qualifying site in Southern Florida.

Well, this is not the first time that Charlie Woods has made an attempt to qualify for a PGA Tour event. Back in February, he had gone ahead to compete at the pre-qualifier match for the Cognizant Classic at the Lost Lake Golf Club in Florida. The result was anything but disastrous as he failed to stay in contention for the tournament.

Charlie Woods, during the Cognizant Classic Pre-qualifiers, registered a score of 86, involving a total of 11 pars and 7 bogeys, the worst of which came at the par-4 seventh, which took the youngster 12 strokes to complete. In the meantime, the lack of any birdies took a toll on his chances, as Billy Basham, the top-ranked player for the tournament, managed to score a total of 6 of them.

Anyhow, it appears the 15-year-old is all ready to catch up to his fellow golfers, who have been dubbed his rivals for a while now, namely Russell and Sargent, the former of whom had become the youngest to make the cut on the Korn Ferry Tour. Meanwhile, the latter had received an invitation for the Masters last year and had also become the Low Amateur at the 2023 U.S. Open.

Charlie Woods’s rivals steal the show

Russell, back in 2023, had surpassed Tiger Woods to become the youngest golfer to earn the American Junior Golf Association Boys Player of the Year. Moreover, he managed to participate at the LECOM Suncoast Classic of the Korn Ferry Tour, a PGA Tour sanction event on a sponsor exemption at the Lakewood National Golf Club, while carding a first-round score of 3-under 68.

Coming to Sargent, the 20-year-old is currently 2nd on the WAGR and has an incredible handicap of +5.5. Besides, even many professional golfers were amazed at his talent. “He’s a phenomenal golfer,” admitted Max Homa as he added, “He doesn’t look like he’s going at it that hard. I’ve heard so many good things about his game. It was probably even more impressive to see him in person.” Well, it appears the young Charlie Woods still needs to up his game if he is to properly catch up to these young athletes who have become nothing short of his rivals in the game of golf.
