Even at the age of 13, the son of Tiger Woods, CharlieYou are rapidly building a reputation in the game.
However, according to one expert, he may not even need to turn professional to earn a significant amount of money. When Woods enters high school at the end of 2023, it could open the door to a no-nonsense contract — a deal that allows athletes to market their name, image, and look.
Sam Weber, Senior Director of Communications at NIL Platform Opendorse, explained to Athlete (Opens in a new tab): “Charlie is in a rare state, just from name recognition alone. He’s similar to Arch Manning, Bronny James, and even Shaquille O’Neal’s sons in that way. He’s probably looking for seven once he’s eligible.” Weber then added that “It would be surprising if the brands that have been prominent in Tiger’s career wouldn’t want to join the fold. You could almost see a Nike commercial with the two of them.”
Arch Manning is a 17-year-old quarterback and the latest American football prodigy to come out of the Manning family, considered a dynasty in sports. Meanwhile, Bronie James is the son of legendary basketball player LeBron. Weber believes Woods compares closely with the latter considering his ability to pull it off in the game. He said, “At this point he compares Broni James more than Arch. Arch is the guaranteed five-star professional, while Broni is more of a four-star and certainly has a chance but is far from a sure bet.”
Currently, the law in Florida, where Charlie resides, does not allow high school athletes to accept zero money. However, one way around this is for Charlie to play on junior golf courses instead of high school golf. If he does, Weber will see him as a safe bet for advertisers. He said, “It’s not a risk to advertisers because of his name recognition alone. That goes for NIL sponsors looking to influence the next generation of sansabelt, which is why Charlie can benefit even if he’s never played professional golf.”
The youngster’s profile has grown exponentially since the 2021 PNC Championship. At the time, he and his famous sire finished runners-up to John Daly’s W.L.L John Daly II, aided by a second round that included 11 birdies in a row – a record. Then, in September, he scored his lowest score yet of 68 in a qualifier for the Notah Begay III Junior National Golf Championship in Florida. Until recently, his father He admitted that he was outsmarted by Charlie.
Charlie has confidence even Former world number one John Rahm to be on the PGA Tour. When asked about the emerging talent in January, Rahm replied: “Tiger Woods’ son Charlie has a lot of talent, certainly a lot more than I did at 12 years old. If he keeps working hard, which I’m sure he will, I won’t doubt for a second that we We’ll see him one day maybe sitting here [on the PGA Tour]. “
British bookmaker Ladbrokes offers odds of 16/1 on Major Charlie wins Before aged 25 and 10/1 on winning the Masters just before his 30th birthday.
