CHARLIE Woods, a long-term Ipswich Town employee, was feeling well over par this week following the birth of golf legend Tiger Woods' second child.

No mean exponent of the 18-hole game, the advisor to manager Jim Magilton and assistant scout, is delighted with the name that the American star has given to his son.

“He has called him Charlie,” smiled the former Town player and coach, who has also had spells working for Tottenham and Newcastle United.
