Most Memorable Moments Between Tiger Woods and His Son Charlie Woods

One of the most famous father-son duos in the sports world is certainly Tiger Woods and his son, Charlie Woods. On the 8th of February 2009, the golf legend and his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, welcomed their second child and only son, Charlie Axel Woods, into the world.



The boy is now 14 years old and has already garnered the attention of millions in the golf world. After all, he too has taken a liking to the sport, just like his father. The two have obviously spent a lot of time together out on the course, so let’s visit a few of those memorable moments.



Charlie Woods learns to swing like Tiger Woods at just 4 years old
Just like his father, Woods Jr. began his journey in golf at a very young age. He was only 4 years old when he was first spotted swinging a club. And his first teacher of course was Tiger himself.




“He just emulates what I do,” said the 82-time PGA Tour champion in 2013. “I’ll hit and he’ll hit, and his swing starts mimicking what I am doing.” So, while other kids played with crayons, Charlie had already started on the path of following in his father’s footsteps.



His first-ever golf tournament was the U.S. Kids Golf Competition in Florida, where the youngster shot a 55 for nine holes, placing second. Charlie now plays junior golf and is spotted on the course at many Hurricane Junior Golf Tour events and also in Junior PGA South Florida events. Last year, he also competed at the Notah Begay III Boys’ Junior Golf National Championship.



Like Father, Like Son: Tiger and Charlie Woods playing at the PNC Championship for 3 years straight
Besides his junior golf events, the youngster has also teed off at the PNC Championship alongside his father.



The duo has competed three consecutive times in the event, first taking the course in December 2020. Charlie was only 11 at the time and was the youngest player ever to feature at the event. The duo finished 7th that year, but Tiger was just glad to have been able to play with his son.





The following year, in 2021, too, the pair returned to the event. Despite his injuries that year after his unfortunate car crash, Tiger chose to play alongside Little Woods in Orlando. They even narrowly missed victory, placing 2nd and losing out to John Daly and his son, John Daly II.
