Tiger Woods son Charlie Woods was spotted with dad this weekend working on his golf game and I’m no expert, but I’d say Charlie’s swing is pretty good. I’m talking way better than the average 11-year-old golfer out there on the links. The PGA guys were down in Mexico for the WGC, but Tiger, 44, was on the bag as Charlie worked his way around the course.
Here’s hoping Charlie can enjoy the game and not feel pressure to live up to crazy expectations that’ll be coming his way down the road. Let’s not forget that dad broke 80 at eight years old. Let’s also not forget that Tiger started beating Earl Woods at age 11 and Earl was trying his hardest not to lose.
For Woods, his first significant fist pump came at age 11 when he beat his father Earl for the first time on the golf course. He remembers it like yesterday.
“We were playing the back tees at the Navy Golf Course in Long Beach,” he said. “I birdied 16 to get to even par. On the par-5 18th hole, my dad missed a 20-foot birdie putt and I made a 15-foot right-to-left uphill birdie putt. I clenched my fist, punched the air, and went crazy. He didn’t know what happened, but it was the greatest thing I ever did in my life.”
