After winning the PNC Championship in December, Justin Thomas and his father Mike made sure that Tiger Woods and his son Charlie hadn't forgotten who the champions were, by wearing the belts they were awarded whilst at Woods' home for dinner.

Woods and Thomas are close friends and watching the pair go head-to-head at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club last month was highly entertaining, with Woods paired with his 11-year-old superstar son and Thomas with his dad.

Team Thomas went on to win the event, beating Vijay Singh and his son Qass by a single stroke, whilst Charlie Woods impressed throughout, especially after his incredible eagle where he drew a 5-wood around a tree to leave his ball a few feet from the hole.

The World No.3 and his dad were awarded the PNC Championship belts for their victory and as you can see in the video below, Thomas did warn that the pair would be wearing them over the Christmas break.

Speaking to the media ahead of this week's Sentry Tournament of Champions, Thomas revealed that he and Mike decided to remind Team Woods of their epic win, when they went round Woods' house for dinner.

"We had dinner with him (Woods) around the holidays and we both wore our belts over there," said Thomas. "Oh, it was great. We would expect them to do the same thing. And, no, I mean, Charlie just kind of laughed when he saw us and Tiger just said, you know, well done, well played. And you know, it was all in good fun. But they fully expected it, I think."

One of the highlights of the PNC Championship was Thomas walking into a bunker for his team's next shot and young Charlie had left a note for them. Watch the brilliant moment in the video below:

Thomas was asked about the note during Wednesday's press conference, where he shed a little more light on the story.

"It was good. It was the -- I mean, the part about it is the whole story wasn't really told. My dad left that note for Charlie in the practice round because he hit it through the fairway and he didn't draw it or didn't turn it over, so my dad wrote a note and put it under his ball and somehow he was smart enough to keep the note and use it in the same situation. So it was very well played. It was very smart for a kid his age."
