Five-time Masters tournament victor Tiger Woods took his time to practice in the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Grande Lakes ahead of the PNC Championship when the social media put his 11-year-old son on notice.
Tiger has been the center of attention often enough to know when that is a fun time, and he was confident Charlie was savoring every minute at the event in Orlando, Fla.
Charlie is not short on confidence either, according to world No.3 Justin Thomas.
Charlie then rolled in the only eagle of the day at the par 5 third hole, with the cheers saluting a magical moment for his proud Dad. "Shut him up pretty quick", Thomas said.
In an extension of the family affair, Charlie's caddie for this week's tournament is Joe LaCava Jr, the son of his father's caddie. The Father-Son Challenge is an annual golf event aiming to showcase the bond between fathers and sons or daughters in playing golf.
"First and foremost, I'm Dad", Tiger said after the round.
Charlie Woods showed off a handsome swing and copied his father's mannerisms to a tee during his debut round at the PNC Championship. From the Nike attire, the similarities were striking between the two.
And the key message that Tiger relayed was that golf can only be played one way, whether on a private course at home or in the glare of the cameras.

According to BBC, it was the first of 800,000 doses of the vaccine that will be dispensed in the coming weeks. With all three manufacturers' vaccines, two doses are required per person.
"He's been playing junior golf tournaments and he's been out in front and having people video him", Tiger Woods said. "I'm making sure he is able to enjoy all of this". At Woods' club, the Medalist, there was a time where golfers were not allowed to play with anyone but family members. But three in particular I take my time. He ain't the star of the show this week.
Tiger said the difference for young Charlie would be sustaining performance for 18 holes in a day and 36 across the weekend, given the junior events he contests are typically played over nine holes. Charlie, the youngest player taking part in this year's exhibition tournament featuring 20 teams, shocked many with his controlled swings at such a tender age.
What are Tiger Woods's thoughts on his son's golfing skills?.
Even so, the lives of the athletes and celebrities are cloaked in mysteries and secrets. Tiger Woods proudly admitted.
No, he's not talking trash.
Tiger's son has endless possibilities.
Thomas will play this weekend with his father, who also operates as his swing coach.
