  Watch: Tiger caddies for son Charlie in junior tournament As far as caddie hires go, Charlie Woods knocked it out of the park for his junior event in South Florida with father Tiger looping for his 10-year-old son.Footage surfaced late Saturday night of Charlie on the range before a 9-hole junior event in South Florida, with Tiger analyzing the picturesque (!) action from his 10-year-old son.

What's left for Tiger Woods to conquer in 2020 ? Let's run down the to- do list.

Tiger Woods hits a shot out of a bunker on the 18th hole during the final round of the 2019 Zozo Championship in Japan. Woods has rewritten enough of golf’s record book that it is utter stupidity to wait six more years to start calling Tiger a Hall of Famer. One of the best lines of the 2019 Induction

For the first time in more than a decade, Tiger Woods rolls into a year a defending major champion. For the first time in his career, Woods rolls into a year as not just a dominant figure in golf, but a dominant elder statesman. And for the first time in many years, Woods rolls into a year with not just hopes that he’ll win big tournaments, but expectations he will.

Woods began his 2020 season at Torrey Pines on Thursday in the Farmers Insurance Open, a locale where he won what seemed like it would be his final major: The dramatic one-legged 2008 U.S. Open victory over Rocco Mediate. He fired a 3-under 69 in his opening round in San Diego, thanks to three birdies in his final nine holes of the day on the North Course.

As Tiger Woods continues to struggle with his game the hands of time continue to close in on him, people seem to have two views on how the remainder of his career will play out. On one side we have the optimists who seem to chalk Woods ’ recent struggles up to personal issues, swing changes

Tiger Woods shot a 3-under 69 on Thursday in the first round of the Farmer Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. Tiger Woods starts 2020 on a strong note.

Now, though, he’s coming off a victory in the 2019 Masters, and he’s tied Sam Snead for the most PGA Tour victories ever with 82. (Technically, he’s already won once this season, at the ZOZO Championship back in October.)

So what’s left for Woods to do? Honestly, from a career perspective, it’s all club twirls at this point. He would’ve been a legend had he retired a decade ago. Now, after pulling off one of the greatest comebacks in sports history, he’s as close to immortal as anyone can get. It’s all house money at this point. But here’s what’s at stake for Woods in 2020:

The majors. Woods is now just three back of Jack Nicklaus’s long-standing record of career majors, and while opinions differ on just how much that means to Woods at this point, if he were to pick up another green jacket or Claret jug this year, every major for the next half-decade would be The Tiger Show. (Decide for yourself if that’s a good thing.) In the last two years, Woods has finished in the top six at least once in three of the four majors. That Masters win might not be the end of the story.

Tiger opens with solid 69 at Torrey Pines

  Tiger opens with solid 69 at Torrey Pines Reigning Masters champion Tiger Woods, seeking an unprecedented 83rd career US PGA Tour victory, fired a three-under par 69 in Thursday's opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open, three adrift of Danish clubhouse leader Sebastian Cappelen. Woods, a 15-time major winner, broke 70 in an opening round at Torrey Pines for the first time since 2013, when he captured his most recent victory in the event on his way to five titles that year. "I definitely was feeling it," Woods said of the adrenaline competition brings. "I missed the competition."I tried to keep everything as calm as I possibly could. I didn't do well at the start with a bogey. I fought back.

The heavyweights. For all his regained skill, Woods still isn’t on the level, talent-wise, with the greatest in the game. Over the course of a season, Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy and others can outdistance him. The question is how well they fare straight-up in a single tournament, and so far, Woods has shown he can hang. He’s able to face down McIlroy almost every time, and he just has to stay out of Koepka’s reach. Easier typed than done, of course.

The Olympics. For all he’s done in his career, Woods has never played in the Olympics—not really surprising, given that he wasn’t in playing shape back in 2016, and prior to that, golf hadn’t been an Olympic sport since 1904. He’s said all the right things about wanting to represent the USA, but the truth is, he’ll have a tough time making the team if he plays a reduced schedule. The Olympics formula rewards wins closer to Tokyo, so if he can notch a couple big wins in the spring, he’s in.

2020 has a chance to be a memorable season for Tiger Woods . 1. It's not about the win: I honestly don't care that he held a trophy at the end of the week. Four back surgeries and my body just can't do what it used to do , but I can certainly think my way around the golf course. I don't hit the ball

The all-time victory mark. Say what you will about Snead’s all-time PGA Tour mark—let’s just say that some of those wins came against less-than-full-strength fields—it stands as one benchmark for golf excellence. And Woods has matched it ... and ought to pass it sometime soon. When? That’s the question. It could come as soon as this weekend, or it could stretch into the summer. Outside of the majors, Woods won’t play many events—don’t look for him at the Anonymous Midwest Manufacturer Classic anytime soon—but he has a chance at Bay Hill, the Memorial and several other familiar courses. It won’t quite be 19 majors, but 83 Tour wins will only add to the legacy.

It ought to be a fascinating year.
