In his first-ever TV appearance, young Charlie Woods demonstrated that he’s got what it takes to go toe-to-toe with the best of them, even if that means going head-to-head with his father, the legendary Tiger Woods.

With a fierce determination and a never-say-die attitude, Charlie pushes his dad to the limit and isn’t afraid to raise the stakes when the competition heats up. 

The 13th hole at the PNC Championship saw the Woods family amid a heated disagreement that had fans on the edge of their seats.

Tiger Woods Is Feeling The Heat From Charlie Woods

The 13-year-old is said to have outdriven the golf legend, sending an enticing and ominous warning for what’s to come from Woods’ youngest child. Last year, during The Match event, Woods spoke about Charlie’s impressive abilities, begrudgingly admitting that his son was already surpassing him. And that’s not all. 

Charlie is out-driving his father with a swing speed above the average on the PGA Tour. However, Tiger has imparted some wisdom to his son, reminding him that balance is critical in golf, not just speed. The golf legend has even gone as far as suggesting that Charlie look to emulate the smooth swing of Rory McIlroy instead of trying to copy his style

Both Charlie and Tiger Have Injuries

Even with a nagging injury, Charlie Woods stood tall at the PNC Championship, but he gave credit to his father for carrying the team through their strong opening round. Charlie had tweaked his ankle earlier in the week, while Tiger’s injury was caused by “growing pains.” 

However, they both agreed to “suck it up” and play through the pain. Tiger even joked that between the two of them, they had two good feet, as Charlie’s injury was to his left foot and Tiger’s was to his right foot. The 13-year-old couldn’t shake the awe of watching Tiger’s performance from the previous day. During the tournament, Charlie and his father learned more about each other’s game.

Charlie Woods paid tribute to his father’s performance during their opening-round 59. But, the young golfer couldn’t help but express surprise at how well Tiger played, claiming it was the best he had seen in a while. Despite this, Charlie already understood his father’s capabilities on the green. But, of course, his comments were somewhat sarcastic and drew lots of laughter from the crowd.

Charlie Takes A Swing At Tiger

With a sly smirk, young Charlie Woods took another playful swing at his famous father, admitting that while he thought he already knew what Tiger was capable of, he was taken aback by the elder Woods’ exceptional play Championship. Tiger, always the good sport, chuckled and acknowledged that even his trusty caddie, Bones, was pleasantly surprised to see the 15-time major champion roll back the clock and showcase his former greatness. 

Despite their setbacks, Tiger highlighted how special it was to play with his son and what a memorable week it was for both of them. Despite the physical struggles, both father and son had a great time on the course, and Tiger couldn’t help but laugh about how their current state was a far cry from his former days of dominance on the greens. 

Tiger Woods put on a vintage performance saving the day for Team Woods with a chip-in eagle, long-range birdie putts, and clutch iron play. His 13-year-old son Charlie struggled with an injury and couldn’t make a normal swing, but Tiger stepped up and delivered some spectacular golf shots. Despite being exposed to years of highlights featuring his father’s golfing greatness, it wasn’t until Tiger delivered some clutch birdies in a family scramble tournament that Charlie saw the extent of his dad’s skills on the course.
