The Tiger and Charlie Woods Show continued Sunday.
On the final day of the 2021 PNC Championship, Team Woods dazzled with 11 consecutive birdies, the longest streak in the history of the father-son golf event, to tie for the lead with Team Daly.
John Daly and John Daly II ultimately won the competition at 27 under par, but Tiger and Charlie Woods shocked the golf world by placing second at 25 under. Tiger Woods was playing in his first competitive event since his February car accident.
“Well, we thought we’re probably going to have to birdie every hole the back nine, or if not, eight out of nine to have chance, and it turned out to be that way,” Tiger Woods told NBC after the duo’s round. “That’s the last hole and we were on a run and it’s like, ‘Hey, even if we’re on a run, we still needed maybe three to maybe get into a playoff or make it interesting for the Dalys there. But man, what a blast it was. Play with [Matt Kuchar] and his son, Cam. We just had a blast all day.”
Tiger and Charlie Woods both performed well during the two-day tournament in Orlando, Fla., at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club’s Grande Lakes course, and it was often 12-year-old Charlie who stole the show. His Sunday included several birdie and eagle putts and one of the most impressive shots of the day, his tee shot on the challenging 17th hole, where all golfers, regardless of age, hit from the same spot.
