Heading into this week’s PNC Championship, all the hoopla surrounds Tiger and Charlie Woods for obvious reasons. Eldrick is officially back after his return at the Hero World Challenge earlier this month and Charlie, well, Charlie is his son – and the expectations are high.
But Team Woods better be on the lookout this week. Last year’s champions, Vijay and Qass Singh, are looking to repeat, John Daly and John Daly II will be riding high on a wave of Hooters wings, and Annika Sorenstam and son Will McGee are coming on strong. How strong? Well, during an after-school practice round at Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando on Wednesday, Will stepped up to the par-3 fourth, plucked his 7-iron from the bag and dunked the sucker for a 1.
Well done, kiddo. Making matters even better, a rules official making final preparations for the tournament witnessed the whole thing and corroborated the hole-in-one for the sceptical online masses.
It’ll take a lot for Annika and Will to top the leaderboard this Sunday, but with a little luck, the magic of youth and another ace or two, anything is possible.
