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.
