Tiger’s son Charlie misses out in first bid to qualify for major

Charlie Woods fell short in his first-ever attempt to qualify for the US Open.

The 15-year-old, whose father is three-time US Open winner Tiger Woods, shot a nine-over 81 at the local qualifier at The Legacy Golf and Tennis Club in Florida to finish the single-day event in what stands as a tie for 59th place.

Only the top five finishers in the 84-player event, plus two alternates, advance to final qualifying for this year’s US Open, which is returning to Pinehurst No 2 on June 13-16 – live on Sky Sports Golf.

The teenage Woods was featuring in one of 109 local qualifying events that are taking place across the USA in April and May, with the leading finishers in each then progressing to the 13 final qualifying sites in late May and early June.
