Twitter reacts as Tiger Woods' son Charlie wins junior event

Golf fans are getting excited on Twitter after seeing Tiger Woods' 11-year-old son Charlie win a 9-hole junior event, where he shot 3-under par to win by five shots.

To the golf fans reading this and thinking "stop putting pressure on the kid" believe me when I tell you that no one here is putting pressure on this young man's shoulders, we are simply reporting the recent comments made by golf fans following Charlie's impressive victory.

He may be just 11 years old but if there is anyone who can coach Charlie to have the right mentality and not feel any pressure, it's a 15-time major champion.

Imagine playing in a junior competition and seeing the beautiful swing that Charlie possesses and then seeing the greatest golfer of all time carrying his bag. Frightening.

 

 

In a US Kids Golf-sanctioned event at Hammock Creek Golf Club, Charlie Woods demolished the field in the nine-hole event, winning the boys 11-year-old division after shooting a 3-under par score of 33 on the 2,467-yard track.

Charlie played a faultless nine holes, making three birdies and no bogeys, something his Dad has done on multiple occasions.

Tiger previously spoke very highly about his son's flexibility and swing, stating that he wished he could move like his son.

“I wish I had his move,” Woods told GolfTV back in July. “I analyse his swing all the time. 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.”

As the scoreboard began to circulate on Twitter, golf fans started getting a little excited about the prospect of a "second coming" and the idea of one of golf's greatest icons passing the baton to his son in the future.
