12-shot hole dooms Charlie Woods’ chances of playing in first PGA Tour event

Charlie Woods will have to wait a little longer to make his PGA Tour debut.

The 15-year-old son of golf legend Tiger Woods failed to qualify for the Cognizant Classic at a pre-qualifier event in Hobe Sound, Florida on Thursday.

Woods carded a 16-over 86 at Lost Lake Golf Club, one of the four pre-qualifying sites for the event scheduled to take place Feb. 29 through March 3 at PGA National’s Champion Course in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Woods was 4 over par through his first five holes before he carded a disastrous 12 at the par-4 seventh hole. He finished the opening nine with a pair of pars before a double-bogey at the par-3 14th.

The round ended with two consecutive bogeys and a pair of pars. Woods played alongside Olin Browne Jr., the son of three-time PGA Tour winner Olin Browne, who carded a 2-over 72.

The leader of the pre-qualifier, Billy Basham, shot a 5-under 65. The top five scores and ties from each of the pre-qualifying sites advance to Monday’s qualifier.

The top four golfers from the qualifier advance to the Cognizant Classic, where the winner will get $1.62 million from the event’s $9 million purse.

Tiger Woods, who withdrew from the Genesis Invitational last week due to illness, made his Tour debut at Riviera Country Club in 1992 at 16 years old.
