Tiger Woods, son Charlie set impressive record for second place at PNC Championships

Tiger Woods and his son, Charlie, finished two strokes behind the Daly family at the PNC Championship, the legendary athlete’s first tournament since the horrific Los Angeles car accident in February.

Woods and his 12-year-old son together made a tournament-record 11 consecutive birdies and pushed for the finish by John Daly and his son John Daly II, a new golfer from Arkansas.

“The fact that I’ve been able to have this opportunity this year — even a few weeks ago we didn’t really know whether I would or not,” Woods said. “But here we are. And we had the best time ever.”

Woods’ pair’s birdie streak ended on the final hole of the tournament, leaving the Daly Bunch in a bit of a faltering position. Team Daly made two putts for a birdie for 57 on the 18th hole and set its own tournament record.
