Golf: Tiger Woods' son steals show with stunning eagle at PNC Championship

  • 20/12/2020

Tiger Woods' son Charlie has proven he's a chip off the old block at the PNC Championship in Orlando, Florida.

Playing alongside a ghost of other famous father and son duos, the 11-year-old stole the show with a brilliant eagle on the third hole.

Watched on closely by his proud father, Woods Jr blasted a perfect five-wood 175yds, leaving the ball just inches from the cup to set-up an straightforward putt to record the only eagle, both of the day and his young golfing career.

"That's your first eagle," Tiger tells Charlie as they walk off the green.

On Saturday, the pair were captured at practice taking simultaneous swing, with Charlie's essentially a mirror image of his dad's.

Charlie wasn't done there, continuing to turn heads with a varied array of approach shots and drives, walking in putss, and even taking time to talk some trash to the opposition.

“He’s a little chirpie,” Tiger says of his son. "Like his dad.

"I'm still winning, for now. He’s starting to understand how to play. He’s asking me the right questions. It’s been an absolute blast just to go out and compete with him. He reminds me so much of me and my dad growing up.

"I wish I had his move. I analyse his swing all the time. I wish I could rotate like that and turn my head like that and do some of those positions. Those days are long gone. I have to re-live it through him."

In the scramble format, Team Woods finished their first of two rounds at two-under to sit tied for sixth on the leaderboard, four shots behind Team Kuchar at the top.
