Tiger Woods is set to play alongside his 11-year-old son, Charlie, in the 36-hole PNC Championship scheduled for December 19 in Orlando. Justin Thomas will also be playing with his father, Mike, and with the event fast-approaching JT offered up some inside information about the youngest member of the Woods team.
It turns out that the littlest Mr. Woods is just like his father when it comes to trash-talking and being super competitive.
During his pre-tournament press conference at the Mayakoba Golf Classic on Tuesday, Thomas shared that anytime he gets together with Tiger, Charlie always wants to beat him and is constantly talking trash. You know, as all 11-year-olds would do to the No. 3 player in the world.
“For some reason, Charlie just always wants to beat me. It doesn’t matter what it is. Although he’s never beaten me in golf or a putting contest, he still talks trash just like his dad,” Thomas explained, according to Golf Digest. “It will be fun. We’ll have that, like, inner tournament within a tournament, trying to shut his little mouth up, but it’ll be fun.”
You talk that trash, Charlie.
The PNC Championship will be our first real introduction to Charlie’s golf game. He’s turned heads in winning some junior tournaments recently with Tiger on the bag, but getting to see him play 36 holes alongside his pop while talking that ish to JT is going to be electric.
John Daly’s son, little John, has had some fun alongside his dad at this event in the past as well and this year’s tournament should be all sorts of fun with Team Woods and Team Thomas squaring off.
One hilarious fact about JT and the Woods’ is that Charlie and Thomas are actually closer in age (16 years apart) than he and Tiger are (18 years apart).
