Tiger Woods’ son, Charlie, is quickly becoming a golf star in his own right. And as he’s climbed the ranks of junior golf, he’s also offered some insights into his legendary father’s game and personality.
In a recent interview, Charlie revealed that Tiger has a tendency to hook his putts. This, Charlie says, throws off his own reads when the two are playing together.
“He tries to hook them,” Charlie said with a laugh. “I have to adjust for it, because if I read it like he’s aiming, I’m going to miss right.”
Charlie also shared some lighter moments about his father. He recalled a time when Tiger accidentally hit a spectator with a practice tee.
“He felt so bad,” Charlie said. “He went over and apologized, and the guy was actually really cool about it. He said it was the best souvenir he’d ever gotten.”
These little glimpses into Tiger’s life as a father and golfer are a treat for fans. They show that even the greatest athletes have their quirks and that, at the end of the day, Tiger is just a dad who loves to spend time with his son.
Of course, Charlie’s own golf game is the talk of the town. The 13-year-old has already won multiple junior tournaments, and he’s considered to be one of the most promising young golfers in the world.
Some have even compared Charlie’s game to his father’s at the same age. But Charlie is quick to downplay those comparisons.
“He’s the best golfer who ever lived,” Charlie said. “I’m just trying to be the best golfer I can be.”
It’s still too early to say if Charlie will follow in his father’s footsteps and become a golf legend. But one thing is for sure: he’s already making a name for himself, and he’s doing it with his own unique style.
In addition to the aforementioned secrets, here are a few other things Charlie has revealed about his father:
- Tiger is a stickler for the rules, even when they’re playing at home.
- Tiger loves to play pranks on his son.
- Tiger is always there for Charlie, no matter what.
It’s clear that Charlie has a great relationship with his father. And that relationship is sure to help him as he continues his ascent in the world of golf.
