Two months after Charlie Woods experienced one high-profile golf qualifying experience, the 15-year-old son of Tiger Woods is entered into another one this week. Charlie is on the Florida Golf Association’s timesheet for the first stage of 18-hole local qualifying in Port St Lucie, Florida, where the top scorers will advance to the 36-hole final qualifying to reach the 124th US Open at Pinehurst No.2 in North Carolina in June.

There are 84 players in the field at the Legacy Golf & Tennis Club, with five expected to advance. It’s Charlie Woods’ first time attempting US Open qualifying.

Interestingly, three-time US Open champion Tiger Woods is not yet in the field for Pinehurst, but he is expected to receive the offer of a special exemption from the USGA in the next month.

In February, Charlie Woods drew heavy media attention when he entered a Monday qualifier for the PGA Tour’s Cognizant Classic. He shot a 16-over-par 86 that included him scoring 12 on a par-4 hole.
