‘Golf Emperor’ Tiger Woods (47, USA) hinted at his satisfaction with his performance.
Woods and his son, Charlie, 13, were asked what they learned about each other this week after finishing their PNC Championship match on the 19th (Korean time).
Charlie noted that he knew about what his father had accomplished, but he had seen more. “Yesterday (my father) played the best game of the week and it was a bit of a shock to me,” said Charlie. In the first round of the tournament held the day before, the Woods father and son combined for a 13 under par 59 strokes. In particular, Woods created impressive scenes, such as catching an eagle with a chip shot and making several successful mid-to-long-distance birdie putts. 스포츠토토
