Tiger Woods and his 12-year-old son Charlie scored a very impressive 15-under 57 in the final round of the 2021 PNC Championship to finish solo second.
The 15-time major champion, who is widely regarded as the greatest golfer of all time, returned to competitive action for the first time since sustaining serious leg injuries in a high-speed car crash near Los Angeles earlier this year.
Woods feared his leg would have to be amputated following the incident in February. He told Golf Digest: “There was a point in time when, I wouldn’t say it was 50/50, but it was damn near there if I was going to walk out of that hospital with one leg.”
Ten months later and, after seeing plenty of progress with physical rehabilitation, the 45-year-old returned for the annual father/son challenge at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando alongside his incredibly talented son, Charlie Woods.
In fact, Charlie, who has clearly picked up some of his father's mannerisms on the golf course, grabbed the headlines throughout the week for a number of quality shots.
Take a look at some of them below. This kid can play.

Charlie, who is reportedly ranked T135 on the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour, averaging a score of 83, went viral earlier this year for
a video that showcased Tiger and Charlie Woods' similarities and mannerisms on the golf course.
In fact, Tiger reacted to that video months later and it made for great viewing.
"Two things that stick out. The timing of the twirls and the pickup of the club — of the tee," Woods told PGA Tour.
"Just the nose thing we have. We both have allergies, so we both struggle on the golf course. We get like, wind blowing and we're both sniffing. Just that little thing that we both have."
Check out the full clip below.
Charlie Woods. Remember the name.
