Like father, like son. Monument of golf, Tiger Woods is the proud father of an aspiring champion, Charlie, 11 years old. A junior with whom he will share the caddy in three weeks during the PNC Championship.
It is an exhibition tournament but a tournament flanked all the same by a nice endowment: 1.085 million dollars. On December 19 and 20, the finest triggers in golf will be paired with a family member on the green at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Florida. And for the occasion, Tiger Woods chose to play alongside his 11-year-old son Charlie.
“I can’t tell you how excited I am to play with Charlie in our first official tournament together,” said the phenomenon in a statement. It was great to see him progress as a junior golfer and it will be amazing to both play as a team. Last August, Charlie caused a stir by winning a US Kids Event with a -3 final card.
“He asks me the right questions”
“He’s starting to understand how to play,” his illustrious father said of him. He asks me the right questions. He’s competitive and it’s great to be with him, by his side. I would like to have his movement. I analyze his swing all the time and I would like to be able to turn as he does, to have some of his positions… All of this is a long way off today for me and I have to relive it all through him! “
