This is a very important week for the Woods duo, for obvious reasons! Fans are enthralled to witness Tiger Woods and Charlie Woods spread their magic on the course during their fourth appearance at the PNC Championship. The tournament marks Woods’s third professional appearance this year. It is also a big occasion for Charlie, as he is entering the field after a good season.

There have been instances when the golfer has caddied for his son, but this won’t be the case this weekend, as both of them are competing. But who will be on their bags this weekend? As per the latest floating video, there is one new face among the two caddies!

Before his sabbatical, Joe LaCava was the caddie for Woods, but after his injury, the golfer let him go. However, while making his much-awaited comeback, Woods opted for his old friend and confidante, Rob McNamara to be his caddie.  “I’ve got Rob this week; he’s seen me hit a few shots,” Woods said at the Hero World Challenge press conference. Things have not changed for the 15x major champion this weekend as well!

Continuing this golfer-caddie bond with McNamara, the 5x Masters champ has chosen him as his looper for this week’s event as well. As for Charlie, things have changed a bit. For at least one known event, the 14-year-old’s father caddied for him, along with playing the role of his mentor. But Woods Jr. has a new bagman as well for the PNC Championship.

The PGA Tour Champions shared a video of Team Woods arriving at the venue on Twitter, wherein both father and son are seen accompanied by their caddies. A new face with them is visible, whose details are still unknown.  The chances are that his caddie is someone from his junior golf, since Charlie Woods shares a sense of familiarity with them.

Much information about Charlie’s caddie is not known yet, but we will soon find out. As for Tiger Woods, his caddie is a known face and has been trusted by the 15-time major winner for a long time now.

The PNC Championship is a two-day event that officially starts on December 16. The first round on Saturday will begin at 10:00 a.m. on the first tee. The event will be broadcast live on Peacock, where fans can enjoy it. How the caddies aid Team Woods at the event remains to be seen. Stay tuned to find out how Team Woods performs at Ritz Carlton GC this weekend!
