On Thursday morning, Charlie Woods started his round at Lost Lake Golf Club in Hobe Sound, one of the four pre-qualifying venues for the Cognizant Classic, previously known as the Honda Classic.

A top-five finish would secure his advancement to the Monday qualifying round, offering him a shot at competing in his first PGA Tour event.
