Charlie Woods part of high school golf championship-winning team in Florida
HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods' 14-year-old son has accomplished something his dad never did: played on a golf team that won a high school state championship.
Charlie Woods and his team from The Benjamin School edged First Academy by one shot in the two-day Florida High School Athletic Association championship, which concluded Wednesday.
With his father looking on, Charlie Woods shot 78-76 for a 154 total to finish in a tie for 26th. His team's total was 602, led by Jake Valentine, who finished in a tie for eighth at 148. It was Valentine's birdie on the 17th hole that put The Benjamin School in front, and he closed with a clinching par.
Alexander Weinberg of Pine Crest won boys' individual honors with a 143, and Florida Atlantic won the girls' division by seven shots over First Academy. Mi Li of First Academy won the girls' individual title with a 136 total.
