Report: AJGA take action after Tiger Woods’ son subjected to ‘unruly behaviour’

Tiger Woods’ son Charlie Woods is making his AJGA debut this week. 

Charlie, who turned 15 in February, has received a sponsor’s invite to compete in the Will Lowery Junior Championship. 

Tiger was spotted at the Carolina Trace Country Club supporting Charlie in his maiden event on the circuit he dominated as a junior. 

The 15-time major champion had to rush back from the Bahamas to be there after holding secret talks with LIV Golf chairman Yasir Al-Rumayyan. 

It’s no surprise Charlie’s inclusion in the field has attracted significant amount of media and fan interest. 

And according to reports, armed police are at the entrance and thoroughly checking ID’s before issuing badges. 

The move is more than likely a response to the behaviour Charlie was subjected to in February as he attempted to get into his first PGA Tour event. 

Charlie played in a pre-qualifier for the Cognizant Classic and things didn’t go to plan as he shot a 16-over par 86. 

But his round was marred by unruly fan behaviour at Lost Lake Golf Club. 

According to a detailed report by the Palm Beach Post:

Fans walked alongside Charlie in the fairway, ignoring requests by tournament officials to stay back

A woman admitted to pulling her grandaughter out of school in the hopes of Charlie noticing her

A fan reportedly demanded Charlie sign a copy of his father’s book ‘How I Play Golf’

Let’s hope Charlie’s latest tournament is without the disruption. 

Charlie is still early in his junior career and he competes predominantly on the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour and the Junior PGA South Florida Tour. 

He has already won one event and, just like pops in his heyday, cruised to an eight-shot victory. 

Charlie also claimed bragging rights over his father when he won a high school state golf championship with the Benjamin School boys team last November. 

Tiger never won a state championship when he was growing up.
