Tiger says Charlie has a lot of the same”feels” that he does. They go out and hit different shots and just have fun. He’s so young he hasn’t really been coached yet. Sounds like they hang out and play with the Thomas’ quite a bit so I think Tiger said Mike Thomas has helped Charlie a bit here and there but that’s it.

Charlie just roped a 5-wood draw from 175ish around a corner to 4 feet on 3. Finishes off the putt for an eagle.

edit: apparently they used his drive too so an own ball eagle for the kid

Imagine eagling holes at 11? Imagine being on TV, golfing, at 11? The kid is impressive.

His first ever eagle. Very cool moment.

He was very impressive. They used almost all his drives. He hits it 225 and with a 100-150 yard advantage in tee boxes there was no point in Tiger hitting drives. Charlie also flagged on at 16 for a birdie.

If only Tiger could drive it straight like Charlie.

A little anecdote from today with those guys.

Team Woods drew a pairing alongside Justin Thomas and his dad Mike. Justin had hit his ball in a bunker off the tee. Charlie dropped a note next to it that simply read, in all caps, “DRAW HOLE!”


It wasn’t Charlie’s (or Tiger’s) handwriting, but that of Mike Thomas. He had dropped that exact piece of paper behind Charlie’s ball in the pro-am after Charlie hit it through the fairway. Team Thomas was playing in front of Team Woods that day.

“In typical Woods fashion,” Justin said, “he kept the piece of paper, and when my dad hit it in the bunker he took that same exact piece of paper and put it behind his ball. Little bit of karma.”

Today was the final Morning Drive. I was never a regular viewer but it’s jarring just how much Golf Channel has been eviscerated.

I remember when it debuted and thought it was pretty good. Then it turned into garbage and I stopped watching years ago. Good riddance.

Sounds like the new format will be better (theoretically). It'll start later so they can do more pre-round interviews and things like that.

I hope this kid ends up doing what he loves in life even if it isn't golf, but I also kind of hope he becomes Tiger 2.0... that would be fantastic.
