Tiger Woods and son Charlie are ready for the win.
For the third consecutive year, the father-son duo teamed up to take part in the PNC Championship on Saturday, Dec. 17 at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Florida.
Woods and his 13-year-old son arrived in matching coral Nike shirts with black slacks and baseball caps.
“Any time I get a chance to spend time with my son, it’s always special,” Woods told ESPN the day before. “And to do it in a competitive forum, the last couple of years have been magical, and to be able to do it again, we’re looking forward to it.”
The outlet also reported that the duo were both limping during Friday’s pro-am, with the pro golfer sharing that Charlie had sprained an ankle. Woods, on his end, is still recovering after his February 2021 car crash.
When asked how playing in the championship might delay his recovery, the 46-year-old athlete said, “You know, I don’t really care about that.”
“I think being there with and alongside my son is far more important, and (getting) to have a chance to have this experience with him is far better than my foot being a little creaky,” he said.
During their time on the course together, Woods and Charlie were seen fist bumping and cheering each other on.
In an interview following their round, Charlie told NBC Sports that playing with his dad “was super fun… it was just a great time and the atmosphere was amazing.”
As for how Charlie and Woods’ daughter, Sam, have motivated him to get back on the course, he said, “Each and every day. Just to be able to see their faces and see their smiles and hear their words of encouragement.”
“I’ve had some tough days as he’s known, but just to have their support and their love,” he continued. “I’m not gonna get teary-eyed here but it has meant so much to me to be able to get to this point in life and forget the stage that we’re playing on but just get to this point in life.”
Team Woods finished the day with a 13-under 59. They will be back on the course on Sunday, Dec. 18, for the final round.
Woods has been slowly returning to golf after suffering injuries to his right leg, with doctors initially fearing that they might have to amputate it after his severe car crash.
The golfer, however, trained and recovered to compete in the PNC Championship last year with Charlie. It was his first since his car crash. The two finished in second place after John Daly and his son, John Daly II. In 2020, they came in seventh.
Antony and Bruno Fernandes clash as Crystal Palace dent Man United’s title notions
Antony was not happy with Fernandes
Manchester United duo Antony and Bruno Fernandes were seen clashing with each other in the first half of United’s draw against Crystal Palace.
Fernandes looked to have secured United the three points with a goal on the stroke of half time only for Michael Olise’s stunning free kick in second half stoppage time ensured a share of the spoils.
Wout Weghorst also made his debut for the club after they paid Beşiktaş to cancel his loan spell in Turkey and move to Old Trafford from Burnley until the end of the season, with United desperately in need of a striker
The majority of the first half saw Erik ten Hag’s side find it difficult to break down a resilient Palace defence with Antony in particular struggling to get the best of full back, Tyrick Mitchell.
It seemed as if tempers began to flare amongst the United ranks on the half hour mark as Antony and Fernandes were caught exchanging verbals with each other, leading to many speculating on social media.

United now prepare to face Arsenal at the weekend, where they will be without Casemiro after he was booked, taking his total tally to five, meaning he will miss out through suspension.
He did get in for a selfie with a pitch invader, though…

Lionel Messi’s wife responds to Shakira ‘betrayal’ post after Gerard Pique break-up
Lionel Messi’s wife Antonela Roccuzzo has come out in support of Shakira following her high-profile split from Gerard Pique – Messi’s former Barcelona team-mate.
Colombian popstar Shakira shared a candid message with her fans on Instagram as she welcomed in the new year, taking a thinly-veiled swipe at her former partner by referencing “betrayal” and “heartache”.
“Even if our wounds are still open in this new year, time has a surgeon’s hands,” the Hips Don’t Lie singer wrote. “Even if someone’s betrayed us, we must continue to trust others.”
In response, Antonela sent Shakira three heart emojis in the comments section, in the latest suggestion that she and her husband are taking the singer-songwriter’s side in the ugly saga.
Shortly after their split, it emerged that Pique was dating 23-year-old Barcelona-born Clara Chia.
Messi and Pique spent over a decade playing together at Barcelona, having emerged from the club’s famed La Masia academy at around the same time.
Messi moved to PSG in 2021, while Pique hung up his boots in November, bringing the curtain down on a trophy-laded 19-year career that saw him win the World Cup, the European Championship, the Champions League, La Liga and the Premier League.
