HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Tiger Woods spent part of Saturday playing golf with his son, Charlie, at Frederica Golf Club on St. Simons Island, Ga.
Pictures emerged on social media late Saturday of Woods playing Frederica, and a source close to the club confirmed the round. Woods’ boat, Privacy, was docked on St. Simons Island earlier this month sparking rumors Woods might play this week’s RBC Heritage on Hilton Head Island, S.C., which is about an hour’s drive north. Woods did not play the Heritage.
St. Simons Island-resident Davis Love III said he didn’t know that Woods played golf on Saturday but he did trade text messages with the 15-time major champion, who stayed at Sea Island Resort’s The Cloister.
According to Love, Woods arrived on the island last Thursday. “He loved Sea Island and the area,” Love said.
Woods hasn’t played a PGA Tour event since the Genesis Invitational in February and likely won’t play again until next month’s Memorial, which he’s won five times.
