Paige Spiranac says ‘Charlie Woods is cooler than all of us’ after whizkid stars alongside dad Tiger
PAIGE SPIRANAC jumped on the Charlie Woods bandwagon by claiming the rising star is already 'cooler than all of us.'
The 11-year-old son of Tiger Woods has grabbed the world's attention following his performance at the PNC Championships.
Charlie has a long way to go to fill the boots of his old man who has won 15 major championships.
But he certainly appears on the right track and continues to show glimpses of his sky-high potential.
Spiranac, a former professional golfer, has already shown a video of Charlie and Tiger with almost identical swings on the driving range.
Alongside it, she wrote: "Charlie Woods is a mini Tiger".
The pair are playing at the team event at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Florida.
On Saturday the father and son duo shot a staggering 10-under round which included an eagle by Charlie.
He hit an unbelievable five wood around 175 yards to within four feet of the flag before rolling in the putt.
As they walked off of the green, Tiger proudly said: "That's your first eagle."
Another clip posted by the PGA Tour online showed Charlie peppering the flag with some brilliant iron shots.
Ahead of the father-son event, Woods said: "I can't tell you how excited I am to be playing with Charlie in our first official tournament together.
"It's been great watching him progress as a junior golfer.
"It will be incredible playing as a team together in the PNC Championship."
But Lee Westwood has warned the PGA Tour not to put pressure on the shoulders of Charlie.
He wrote on Twitter: "Hey @PGATOUR I lived and saw first hand the intensity and scrutiny the world put on his dad.
"Give Charlie a break and just let him be a kid and enjoy his golf and childhood.
"I might be wrong here but please take a step back and let him play with his dad and enjoy himself."
