The score came in the final round of a qualifier for the Notah Begay III Junior National Golf Championship.
Speaking after his round, Charlie said: “That was awesome, I mean I couldn’t have done it without him (Tiger).
“Some shots I would have been so off but he steered me on the right course.
“Dad told me to stay patient. I just played steady golf; focus on each shot, don’t look too far ahead and just stay in the game.”
His score was the perfect response after shooting 80 in the opening round.
Charlie first marked his credentials as a potential star for the future at the PNC Championship last December.
Then he teamed up with his Dad to finish second, two-shots behind John Daly and his son in what was Tiger’s first appearance since a horror car crash he suffered which left him with “multiple injuries” to his legs.
It has already been noted how similar Charlie’s style and mannerisms are to his fathers.

How can I improve golf scores?
These simple tips will help you improve your game of golf quickly and easily.
- Do more practice and less play. To improve at something, you need to practice more. To play too often is a sign that you are developing bad habits.
- Play when you feel good. Sometimes you don’t feel like golf. You shouldn’t be forced to do things that you don’t like. Instead, find ways that golf can be made more enjoyable.
- Take breaks. Golfers often take breaks during their round to stretch, walk around, eat lunch, etc. Taking breaks allows your body to relax and helps you stay focused throughout the round.
- Water! It is easy for people to lose track of the number of drinks they have had while out on the courses. So make sure to drink enough water to keep you hydrated. Drinking plenty of water before, during, and after your game will help keep you feeling refreshed and ready to hit those greens.
- You must eat right. Healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and legumes will provide energy that will help you perform well on the course.
- Keep hydrated. Drinking lots of water is the best way to stay hydrated. At least eight glasses of water should be consumed each day. This includes water from beverages (such as coffee), as well as plain water.
- You should warm up properly. Warm up for five minutes by walking, jogging or running before hitting your first shot. Focus on becoming loose and limber.
- Keep your head down. When you tee off, it’s important to keep your eyes straight ahead. Don’t look at the ball and pay attention to where it hits. Instead, keep your eyes on the hole.
- Proper form is key to a smooth and graceful swing. Different people might interpret the same thing as proper form. You want to avoid hitting the target. Instead, aim for the ball to be in the middle of your club face.
- You should be focused on the process. Focusing on the process is key to developing a golf swing that is successful. There are many factors that can contribute to a good swing. You can relax your grip if your hands are slipping. Or, if you struggle to maintain balance, then focus on maintaining good posture.

Five easy exercises that will improve your golf swing
Golf is one of the most popular sports worldwide. To become a skilled golfer, it takes a lot practice. Practice is the best way to improve your game. It is important to spend at least two hours each week playing golf. Sometimes, however, it is difficult to find the time. These five simple exercises can help you improve your golf swing.
- Start from the bottom – Stand straight up, keep your back straight, hold the club straightly, bend your knees slightly, and begin swinging the club. Keep your head still and concentrate on your target. This helps you get into the right position to hit the ball.
- Balance is key – Stand straight and keep your feet together. Also, ensure that your weight is evenly distributed throughout the body. When you hit the ball your weight should shift to the front leg.
- Bend your knees – To help you bend your knees, place your hands on your hips. Now, take a deep breathe and exhale, while gently bending your knees. This will allow your lower back to follow you as you swing the golf club.
- Relax your shoulders. Instead, let them swing the club free. This will enable you to generate power and speed without having to use excessive force.
- Keep your eyes on your target. Keep your eyes straight ahead and concentrate on where you want the ball to go. You won’t be capable of seeing what is wrong if your eyes are fixed on the ball.
