During a nine-hole junior tournament in South Florida, Tiger Woods hit the links with his 10-year-old son.

But, instead of teeing off himself, Woods served as a caddy for Charlie Axel at the event.

Despite having his dad helping him out on the course, Charlie, who turns 11 next month, didn’t win the event and finished with a 5-over 41.

After winning the Masters for the fifth time last year, Woods talked about how “special” it was to have his son and daughter in attendance to see him win his first Major title in 11 years. 

“It means the world to me,” Woods said. “Their love and their support, I just can’t say enough how much that meant to me throughout my struggles when I really just had a hard time moving around,” he told reporters at his winner’s press conference. But just to have them there, and then now to have them see their Pops win, just like my Pops saw me win here, it’s pretty special.”

The elder Woods will make his 2020 debut at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines (where he’s won eight times) in a couple of weeks.
