Golf fans react to video of Gary Player giving Charlie Woods a putting lesson

A video went viral of golf icon Gary Player giving Tiger Woods 11-year-old son Charlie a putting lesson as they warmed up for the PNC Championship and golf fans are loving it.

Posted on the Golfersdoingthings Instagram page, Player was giving Charlie a few tips on how to get the best out of his putter and told him to focus on keeping his head as still as possible.


Team Woods put in a fantastic performance during the PNC Championship, which was eventually won by Justin Thomas and his father Mike, who beat Vijay Singh and his son Qass by one stroke, with a birdie at the final hole.

The 15-time major champion and his son finished in seventh place and we were treated to some magical moments by the two, including an epic eagle from Charlie, who drew a wood around the bend to leave his ball just a few feet from the hole.

"Memories we'll have for our entire lives," Woods said. "He [Charlie] is not going to appreciate this at 11 years old. I didn't when I was with my dad. As the years go by, you start appreciating it more."

Once the video of Player and Charlie started making the rounds on social media, golf fans flooded the comments section.

"Imagine Tiger Woods is your dad and Gary Player is giving you tips on putting. That’s like starting a 200 meter at the 150m line and everyone else is at the start line," said one golf fan.

"Gary definitely mentioned how many sit-ups he can do at some point on that green," joked another.

"You're a legend already if GP calls you 'my boy'."
