In a video shared by the PGA Tour, the 44-year-old athlete stood to the side as his son drove the ball around 175 yards, which set him up for an eagle — the first of the day.
“Awesome shot,” Woods was heard telling his son on the green.
After Charlie finished up the hole, the proud dad also had a big smile on his face as he clapped for his son and gave him a high five.
“That’s your first eagle,” the father of two added, according to ESPN, as the pair — who wore matching purple shirts — made their way off the green.
After his father got a birdie, Charlie walked over to retrieve the ball before tossing it to his dad, who responded by giving his son a fist bump.
Calling the day “priceless,” Woods reflected on his first competitive round with his son and told reporters: “He enjoyed being out there. … Him hitting some of those incredible shots and carrying from the range to the golf course is what we talked about.”
The championship, formerly known as the Father/Son Challenge, brings together PGA Tour and LPGA athletes and a family member to compete as a team. The pro-am began on Thursday, while the two-day competition started up on Saturday.
Although Woods has been spotted caddying for his son at various tournaments, this time around the pair had their own father-son caddie duo.
On Thursday, Woods’ longtime caddie, Joe LaCava, confirmed that he and his own son, Joe Jr., 22, will serve as the caddies for Team Woods.
“About a month ago Tiger approached me and said, ‘I’m thinking about playing in the PNC father-son championship with Charlie,’ ” LaCava said in an interview with Golf TV. “And I was so jacked up, I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ ‘Cause I thought it was probably a year or two away. He was so excited Charlie caught the golf bug this year, playing a ton of golf, practicing, working at it, and was psyched to play.”
“Tiger was kind enough to ask me to ask Joe to caddie for Charlie so we could have a father-son caddie duo with the father-son player duo,” he added. “We’re gonna have a good weekend.”
While Tiger Woods and his son Charlie Woods, 11, competed in the PNC Championship on Saturday, the young golfer made a very impressive shot, much to the delight of his father.Later in the day, the cameras also captured another sweet father-son moment.
