Like father, like son.
Tiger Woods’ 11-year-old son Charlie drew headlines even before this weekend’s PNC Championship and his swing was all over Twitter with his Eagle on Saturday. He hit his first shot 180 yards and then nailed a putt.
The duo finished -10 on the day, tied for sixth. Matt Kuchar and his 12-year-old son Cameron are in the lead at -14.
The event is reserved for major champions and a family member.
Padraig Harrington added hype to this weekend’s by saying Charlie Woods would be the story of the tournament.
“What I do find interesting: I think Tiger turned pro slightly before me or around the same time as me,” Harrington said Friday, according to ESPN. “This is the first tournament I’ve ever played in that Tiger Woods is playing in that he’s not the star of the show.
“He should note that himself. He ain’t the star of the show this week. And that’s very much among the players and the pros. We’re all going down the range, and everybody is stopping to watch Charlie. ‘Move out of the way, Tiger.’ It is incredible the buzz it’s created.”
So far, he hasn’t been wrong.
