Tiger Woods cheers on son, 11, at golf tournament
Tiger Woods told GolfTV that his son asks him all 'the right questions'.
Charlie Woods dominated a golf tournament last weekend at a nine-hole event at Hammock Creek Golf Club in Palm City, Florida.
The 11-year-old shot a 3-under 33 in the tournament, with three birdies and no bogeys on the scorecard. His father, Tiger Woods, was his caddy.
Last month, Tiger Woods told GolfTV that his son asks him all “the right questions.” He said that the experience of teaching his son the game has been “an absolute blast” that reminds him of growing up and learning from his father, Earl Woods.
“I wish I had his move,” Woods said of Charlie. “I analyze his swing all the time. I wish I could rotate like that and turn my head like that and do some of those positions, but those days are long gone, and I have to relive them through him.”
Tiger Woods was a golf prodigy as a child. Reports claim that he began swinging golf clubs at 18 months old. Woods hit his first hole in one when he was eight years old.
He evolved into one of the greatest professional golfers and one of the highest-paid athletes of our lifetime.
The 44-year-old golf legend has two children with his former wife, Elin Nordegren. A daughter, Sam Alexis Woods, and Charlie Axel Woods.
Fans were thrilled to see Tiger supporting his son. One wrote, “Tiger Woods on the bag this past weekend for his 11-year-old son might be the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while. Complete dad move.”
Another fan empathized with other competitors and their parents, “Can you imagine being 11 showing up to your golf tournament and the other kid has Tiger Woods on the bag?”
Just last weekend, Woods played in the PGA Championship where he lost to Colin Morikawa.
