Video Comparing Tiger Woods And His Son's Identical Golf Style Goes Viral
A video showing the surreal similarities between Tiger Woods and his son playing golf has generated thousands of comments, with fans stunned at how identical their mannerisms are.
The 15-time major winner Tiger played alongside his son, 11-year-old Charlie Woods, in a two-day exhibition event in Orlando. They finished a solid seventh overall: pretty good seeing as Charlie is the youngest player ever to compete in the PNC Championship.
However the big talking point was sports fans spotting how Tiger's cub has inherited so many of his dad's on-course habits - from his stance to his swing to the way he twirls his club after teeing off.
Frankly, it's uncanny.
"Mini-me is definitely picking up what Dad is putting down," said golf commentator Doug Dirks in response to the PGA video titled 'Copy cat'.
"Just a kid enjoying the game his dad taught him, in the way he taught him. It's so cute to see him copy his mannerisms," said another golf fan.
Watching Tiger and his son this weekend was unreal. That kid is going to be a star. https://t.co/GrCkPF4hRD- Kylen Mills (@KylenMills) December 22, 2020

The fact the duo wore matching outfits in Orlando - including Tiger's famous red on the final day - only enhanced the feeling of watching Woods Senior and a miniature clone.
Obviously it's hard to tell whether Charlie Woods is deliberately copying his old man's affectations or whether it's simply unconscious, as he's watched his dad so much and presumably played numerous rounds with him.
The alternative is that Charlie has had the 'Tiger golf DNA' basically running through his veins and in 10 years will basically start to dominate the sport for an extended period. We will see.

At least it was good to see the 44-year-old Woods enjoying himself on the course alongside his son, as they put in a strong performance.
"I don't think words can describe it," said Tiger after Team Woods shot a 10-under 62 for the second day in a row, ending on 20 under overall.
"Just the fact that we were able to have this experience together, Charlie and I, those are memories for our entire lives."
Caps off - in perfect unison - to both golfers.
