Tiger Woods Taps Son Charlie as Swing Consultant for US Open

Tiger Woods Taps Son Charlie as Swing Consultant for US Open

Golf legend Tiger Woods will have some extra help when he tees off at next week's US Open thanks to an invaluable new addition to his team - his 15-year-old son Charlie.


Speaking to reporters on Tuesday ahead of the major championship at Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina, Woods revealed he has enlisted Charlie to serve as his swing consultant.


"Charlie has seen me hit more golf balls than anyone over the years," Woods said. Tiger fully trust his son expertise and know he can provide extremely valuable support.



As a player support credential holder inside the ropes, Charlie will analyze Tiger's swing in person and give feedback - especially beneficial for the greens, according to Woods.


Tiger stated Charlie has watched his swing and putting technique more than anyone. His knowledge will be a huge help as he prepare.


The father-son duo wasted no time getting to work, putting in practice hours already at Pinehurst leading up to Thursday's opening round. They were even spotted working together during Tiger's practice round with stars Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler on Monday.



At just 15 years old, Charlie is gaining experience well beyond his years from caddying for Tiger in past PNC Championships, where they finished runner-up last year. He is also an excellent junior golfer, having helped his high school team win a state championship.


With Charlie by his side as extra sets of eyes, the 15-time major winner will look to contend at his first US Open since 2020. Tiger tees off in an intriguing group with defending champ Matt Fitzpatrick and rising American Will Zalatoris on Thursday morning.


Only time will tell if Charlie's expert consultation can help Tiger finally capture that elusive 16th major, but their budding father-son partnership is already the talk of Pinehurst ahead of this week's championship.


Charlie Woods' current golf career and future plans


Charlie Woods's possibilities are endless. The Tiger Woods kid is only fifteen years old, but he has already shown incredible promise in his developing golf career.


Charlie has been dominating the junior tournament circuit recently. He's constantly near the top of the leaderboard at American Junior Golf Association events and other top competitions for high schoolers.


The other kids can't keep up with Charlie's killer instincts and composure under pressure. He plays with a maturity well beyond his years. Word is pro scouts are taking note of his recent tear.


With Tiger as his mentor, Charlie is learning from the very best. Just watching the GOAT in action on the range must be worth a million private lessons. Having Dad nearby on the course for advice is an advantage too sweet to believe.


The plan is for Charlie to keep honing his craft among his junior peers for now. But don't be surprised if he makes a run at some PGA Tour events in the coming years. He's that far along already.


When it comes to Charlie's future goals, the parallels to Tiger's story are uncanny. Just like his old man, Charlie dreams of bringing home major championship hardware as a professional.


Judging by the skills Charlie is showing so early, and with the Tiger Woods seal of approval in his corner, that goal seems well within reach if he keeps up the amazing work. The future of golf could very well belong to Charlie.
