AUGUSTA, Ga. — If Saturday was a day to forget at the 2024 Masters for Tiger Woods, Sunday already looks to be a bit more inspiring thanks to the friendly face who accompanied the five-time green jacket winner to the practice range ahead of the final round.

Tiger’s 14-year-old son, Charlie Woods, watched his father warm-up ahead of a 9:35 a.m. tee time with amateur Neal Shipley. Charlie stood by has Tiger hit balls, and even appeared to offers a few tips to his dad as he worked his way through his irons.

Nothing went right for Tiger during his third round, when Woods struggled with his swing and the effects of his still balky back. Woods made eight bogeys and two double bogeys en route to a 10-over 82, the highest score he had ever shot in 99 competition rounds at Augusta National. He ended the day at 11 over for the tournament, 18 shots off the lead in a tie for 52nd.

Woods was obviously frustrated with his performance, having made the cut the previous day with four shots to spare, setting the Masters record for most consecutive cuts made in tournament history at 24.

“The fact that I was not hitting it very good or putting well. I didn't have a very good warmup session, and I kept it going all day today,” Woods said. “Just hit the ball in all the places that I know I shouldn't hit it.”

Here’s hoping that Charlie might have gotten in a better spot as he tees off on Sunday.
