Tiger Woods will return to golf after a year-long hiatus, primarily due to his serious car accident in February, at this weekend’s PNC Championship while playing alongside his son, Charlie.
Fans were surprised that Woods was returning to golf so soon, but it seems the father-son aspect encouraged him to come back and play.
“Although it has been a long and challenging year, I am very excited to close it out by competing in the @PNC championship with my son Charlie. I am playing like a dad and I couldn’t be more excited and proud,” said Woods. in a Twitter statement.
This is not the first time the father and son duo have played together in a tournament; They also played in the 2020 PNC Championship, which was Charlie’s PGA debut. The 12-year-old also started playing in some youth tournaments this year, which Father Tiger attends on occasion.
Charlie will be joining Daddy Tiger again this year, and their close relationship is expected to return to the spotlight once again. We could possibly be looking at the future of golf.
Tiger and Charlie Woods golf mannerisms
A video was released in the week leading up to the 2021 PNC Championship showing split screens of Tiger and Charlie with similar gestures while playing golf. Tiger was shown this video and his reaction was priceless.
It’s almost as if Charlie has been watching his father play golf his entire life. Tiger was shocked at how similar his club spins are, followed by picking up his jerseys. Additionally, Tiger’s infamous fist pump appears to have passed on since Charlie recreated this celebration multiple times at last year’s tournament. That got the crowd excited, sure.
A funny mannerism is that both Woods fight allergies, according to Tiger, which is why they both scratch their noses while playing.
Like last year, the duo should wear the same outfits again at this year’s PNC Championship. Last year, the couple wore purple polo shirts on Saturday, and then of course wore red on Sunday to pay tribute to Tiger’s traditional Sunday red outfit.
