Charlie Woods can now say he’s achieved a golf accomplishment his father Tiger never has: Win a high school state championship.
On Wednesday, the 14-year-old Woods was on the Benjamin School (North Palm Beach, Fla.) boys golf team that won the Florida High School Athletic Association Class A state championship, taking down second-place First Academy (Orlando, Fla.) by just one stroke.

The five-player golf team of Benjamin kept all individual round scores below 80, with sophomore Jake Valentine and freshman Brooks Colton leading the way with scores of 148 and 149, respectively, over the two rounds.
Woods finished with the fourth-best score on the Benjamin team, golfing 78 and 76 in his rounds. His total score of 154 was No. 26 overall in the 96-person tournament.
While Tiger, who was in attendance at the event, never won a state championship, he also never competed in one. And he did become the youngest U.S. Junior Amateur champion at age 15, so Charlie can’t hold much over him yet.
