Like father, like son: Tiger Woods’ kid sinks eagle at PNC Championship
Tiger Woods and his son Charlie wore matching outfits at the father-son PNC Championship on Saturday. Their swing is similar. It’s a mini-me-like situation on the course.
The younger Woods amplified these similarities with a phenomenal approach shot on the third hole of the day.
The 11-year-old dropped in an eagle on a par-5 at the Orlando, Fla. course on Saturday, his first eagle ever in competition.
Charlie used his 5-wood from about 175 yards out and dropped it right at the hole. He completed it on the next swing, tapping in the putt for eagle.
It was truly his eagle, too, despite the scramble format. The duo used Charlie’s drive, his approach and short putt to finish.
Tiger can add another accomplishment to his list on the course: Partnering with his child and watching him get an eagle.
Team Woods finished the tournament at -10, good enough to be tied for sixth place and just four strokes behind the leader, Matt Kuchar and his son Cameron.
