Tiger Woods shared an emotional moment with his son after winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday. It showed a side of Tiger, who is one of the more intense golfers to ever play the game, that many of us are not used to seeing.
After the win, reporters asked a number of questions about Tiger’s 4-year-old. Woods was asked if his son has begun playing golf, and he said that he likes to emulate his dad’s swings but that he would never force Charlie to play golf or any sport that he didn’t want to play.
“But it’s like what my dad did, and that’s keep it fun,” Tiger said, via ESPN.com. “Go out there, no lessons, and just have fun. He just emulates what I do. I would go and hit balls and it goes kind of quiet for a while, and then the next thing I know and he’s looking over my shoulder and he’s kind of watching and just kind of eyeing me.”
Tiger will, however, be calling the shots with his children to an extent when it comes to golf attire. When asked if Charlie would ever dress like Rickie Fowler, Woods chuckled and gave the following response.
“My kid is not going to wear a flat bill (cap),” he said.
Doesn’t he want to be a cool dad? Flat brims and orange Pumas are what the kids where these days. Who knows what they’ll be wearing in 15 or so years when Tiger’s son would be entering his golf prime. A flat-billed hat might be the least of his worries by then.
