Following in your father’s footsteps can be a daunting task for any young boy. However, expectation must ramp up to the nth degree for Charlie Axel Woods, son of golfing legend Tiger Woods. Woods senior and junior are set to pair up competitively for the first time in the PNC Father Son Challenge 2020. Let’s take a look at what will be an unmissable tournament.

When is Charlie Axel Woods playing?

The 11-year-old will get the chance to show what he can do on the golf course when he plays alongside his father at the PNC Father Son Challenge 2020 next month.

The tournament, which will take place from 17 to 20 December, promises to be a must-watch event in the lead-up to Christmas. It will be available to watch on NBC, GOLF Channel, and Peacock.

20 major winners have been invited to compete alongside a family member. It’s no surprise Tiger and Charlie have been chosen to participate.

Charlie Woods – chip off the old block

Charlie has displayed plenty of promise already in his early years as a golfer. He won a junior tournament in Florida in 2018, signalling he may have an exciting future in the game.

A clip posted on YouTube earlier this year had fans saying Charlie was a chip off the old block.

And Tiger has admitted he can’t wait to play alongside his son in front of the cameras.

He told PGA Tour: “I can’t tell you how excited I am to be playing with Charlie in our first official tournament together.

“It has been great watching him progress as a junior golfer and it will be incredible playing as a team together in the PNC Championship.”

High-class field awaits

The pair won’t have it all their own way at the event, however. They will be joined in the tournament by other major winners including Padraig Harrington, John Daly and Jim Furyk. They have all signed up and will be partnering their sons too.

Bernhard Langer, who recently impressed at the Masters, will also take part.

Tiger Woods showed glimpses of his best form at Augusta National last week. The 15-time major winner made the cut comfortably before faltering on the final day.

He finished tied for 38th having been unable to repeat the heroics of 2019, when he won the tournament to end his 11-year wait for a major victory.
