Tiger Woods and his son Charlie began their second and final round of the PNC Championship in Tiger’s signature Sunday red in pursuit of an incredible victory in Florida.

Starting the day two shots off the lead, Woods and 13-year-old Charlie hit the course in the color that has served Tiger so well throughout his career. Charlie specifically looked at the brilliant touch, with the PGA Tour sharing an incredible video of him letting go of the driver.

But the duo were both walking wounded heading into this weekend’s competition in Florida and were unable to seal the top spot. They finished with a score of 20-under, six shots behind winner Team Singh.

Woods has been struggling with plantar fasciitis and admitted he should rest this weekend, but put his recovery on hold so he can play with his son.

Vijay Singh and his son, Qass, hit four birdies and an eagle on the back nine to win.

They, like Woods, started the day two shots behind the overnight leader, Team Thomas. The Thomas duo finished second with John Daly and his son.

Charlie, meanwhile, is playing on a pain barrier with a left ankle issue and admits taking to the course on Saturday has given him a new perspective on his father’s high pain threshold.

‘I found a new respect for him now after getting a very minor injury – I wouldn’t even call it an injury, I’m just hurt,’ said Charlie on Saturday night.

‘Just to see what he’s going through and how, with a fraction of it, it hurts and it’s just cool how he got to where he is now and what he has been through.’

‘There is a big difference between pain and injury. It’s just pain. If you’re injured, you’re not playing,’ Woods said.

‘It’s just a little pain and it’s game time. We went out there and we sucked at the same time. We are the prefect yin and yang – he has a left foot, I have a right foot, we have two beautiful feet. We’re good.’
