PGA Tour winner and coach Brad Faxon said Charlie Woods' swing "looked better than Tiger's" as the young star played in the Notah Begay III Junior Golf Championship earlier this week.

Speaking to SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio, Faxon was as excited as everyone by the footage of Charlie's impressive swing and compared his relationship with his father to Tiger Woods' bond with Mark O'Meara.

Woods, 46, suddenly has a packed schedule in December. He's in the field for the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas and on December 10, he and Rory McIlroy will face off against Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas in the match.

Tiger and Charlie are also set to play together again in the PNC Championship in Orlando just before Christmas. They came second last year behind John Daly and his son.

"Charlie has really matured physically and everybody that has any kind of social media can see these swings of Charlie. It looks better than Tiger if that's possible!" Faxon said.
"It looks like something's happened to his backside, his legs - they have just thickened up. He's got that club twirl down to perfection.
"When you think about Tiger and what he's done in his entire career and what he's doing now, I really think there's going to be a rejuvenation of Tiger's career a little bit because of Charlie.
"It's a little bit like - Tiger's mentor was Mark O'Meara back in the late 90s when Tiger turned pro, won The Masters in 1997 and didn't you know it, O'Meara won in '98, both The Masters and The Open Championship that year.
"I think that could happen to Tiger. He might say, 'you know what, this deal - I can caddie for Charlie and when I go play with him, it makes me excited about playing more golf'."

Charlie came 11th in the boys 12-13-year-old division at Koasati Pines at Coushatta. As Faxon said, he is showing some of the same mannerisms as the 15-time major champion.

Woods' playing days are not completely over despite showing off his caddying skills this week, and it was Faxon's putting student McIlroy who hinted at his participation in Albany in just over two weeks' time.

"Tiger overall is fine, he is still working on his rehabilitation, the road is long but improving day by day. After the Open Championship, he had to take a break but I think he can return by the end of the year, maybe already at the Hero World Challenge," McIlroy said to golf&turismo.
"I have practised with him (Charlie) a couple of times and I can say that it is impressive to see him swing and think that he is only 13 years old. The important thing, however, is that he maintains light-heartedness and the right spirit."
