Tiger Woods is easily the most famous golfer on the planet, but at this rate, his 11 year old son isn’t too far behind.
Last week Charlie crushed the field in the nine-hole event, winning the boys 11-year-old division after shooting a 3-under par score of 33.
He made three birdies and no bogeys, with his dad in attendance.
His latest tournament victory was at another nine-hole event in the 9-11 age division at PGA South Florida Section tournament, which Charlie won by three shots. He was also the only player in the field to shoot below par.
The 11-year-old has won his last two tournaments by a combined eight shots.
In a recent interview with Golf Digest and GOLFTV, Woods spoke on his son’s potential.
“He’s starting to get into it. He’s starting to understand how to play. He’s asking me the right questions. I’ve kept it competitive with his par, so it’s been just an absolute blast to go out there and just be with him,” he said.
“It reminds me so much of me and my dad [growing up],” Woods added.
When asked if his son could one day break any of his records, he replied, “I don’t know. It depends how bad he wants it.
“It’s all on him. I wanted it at a very, very early age. I wanted to compete and play in this game. That’s on him, whether he wants it or not.”
There’s no doubt about it, Charlie Woods is a phenom. Looks like the apple hasn’t fallen too far from the tree.
