TIGER Woods’s 11-year-old son Charlie is a chip off the old block after he won a junior golf tournament, with his famous father by his side.
Last weekend, the mini pro followed in his father’s footsteps and topped the leaderboard at the US Kids Golf-sanctioned event at Hammock Creek Golf Club in Palm City, Florida.
Charlie shot a three-under 33 across nine holes in the boys’ 11-year-old division, according to the leadership board on the US Kids Golf website.
He finished with no bogeys and three birdies.
Charlie even had his own golf caddy, in the form of his famous father Tiger, who carried the boy’s clubs, according to pictures posted on social media.
Charlie’s victory was dubbed “the second coming” by golf fans.

“Imagine playing in a junior tournament and the caddie for your opponent is Tiger Woods,” another spectator mused.
The 44-year-old father previously said he had nightly putting contests with his son, and has spoken about the 11-year-old’s interest in the sport.
“He’s starting to understand how to play,” Tiger told Golf TV last month. “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, you know, be with him.”

“I analyze his swing all the time,” Tiger added.
“I wish I could rotate like that and turn my head like that and do some of those positions, but those days are long gone, and I have to relive them through him.”
In 2019, Tiger won the Masters Tournament for the fifth time, suggesting that perhaps his golfing days aren’t quite behind him yet.
