Watching the practice round of Tiger Woods and his son Charlie at the 2020 PNC Championship sure brings back some fond memories. In my early years I had the honour of playing golf with my Dad, but alas we never had the opportunity to play in a tournament. That was reserved from my Mom about 10 years later. Whether in competition or playing in a friendly, I can say that those rounds were priceless!
Here is a slow motion video of Tiger and Charlie playing their practice round on Thursday:
I was taken aback by how similar their mannerisms were; I realize they are father and son, but my goodness. I am not sure how they will fair in this weekend, but the thrill of playing together provides a memory for both of them they will cherish for a lifetime.
I can say that without question, playing golf with one or both my parents is something I miss. They provide insight to golf and life that we sometimes do not hear off the course. Additionally, is fun to watch them laugh and joke around. The entire experience, for me anyways, was a great time.
Golf is a sport that has the opportunity to span time and allow any level of athlete the opportunity to enjoy the company of their family. Golf is truly a contact sport…..just ask Tiger and Charlie.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
