ORLANDO, Fla – It has often been said that the way they play golf can tell you a lot about people Well, 11 year old Charlie Woods, son of a Hall a Famer and Named after a Hall of Famer, played the first televised competition round of his life on a resort course here on Saturday, and we’ve learned that:

When a tee on a par-3 hit a bank and dripped into a pond, he gave the sole of his iron a love blow on the firm lawn here

He always knew when to mark, when to putt, when to play and when to get out of the way. He goes to tee with tee and ball in one hand and his driver in the other. He takes two wobbles and leaves If all of America were playing golf at its pace, 18-hole rounds could be played again in three hours

When Mike Thomas, Justin’s dad, tried to double or nothing on a practice green putt in desperation to get back a dollar he had lost to the kid, Charlie said, “That’s fine – I like mine Dollar ”

A round that lasted 4½ hours and there was never a moment when Charlie seemed bored. The opposite

On the 3rd Hole, a par-5 of 422 yards for him, Charlie hit a driver and a 5-wood from 175 yards and made about three feet for an eagle. This event, the PNC championship, is a scramble format, but on this hole went the Woods team Charlie-Charlie-Charlie

Less often said that you can tell a lot about parents by playing with their kids. And if you believe that, Tiger Woods seems to be an extraordinary father

Dad was appropriately cheerful when Charlie turned that eagle to 3, but you would never call his celebration excessive

In his post-round remarks to reporters, Father spoke with pride, but not undue pride, of Charlie’s game on the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club course here, with television cameras trained on him and perhaps 100 spectators. Tiger said Charlie on Saturday did what he does at home when they play at Medalist It was obvious that Tiger wouldn’t have let a son play if Charlie’s golf and maturity hadn’t been at the level he could handle it

But the most revealing moment of all actually had almost nothing to do with golf, but rather told you about Tiger as a father

The 15th Hole is a par-5 tiger and Justin Thomas played from the back tee Mike Thomas played from a tee that was about 15 yards from the back tee Charlie Woods (who played from the same tee that Lee Trevino and Gary Player played from) played from a tee shot more than 100 yards from the back tee. He was walking to his teeing ground in front of the fairway when he dropped his driver. It just fell out of his hands

Tiger was a step or two behind his son, and Tiger stepped right over the driver like it was a crack in the sidewalk and kept walking. It was beautiful and probably illuminating

Have you seen other parents of junior golfers today? Oh my son, don’t you have the long t-shirt you want for this hole? Let me go to my bag 30 meters away and get you one.There’s a lot of it, but probably not with Tiger and Charlie. Here’s Tiger: You dropped it, you pick it up. He has his own back around which he is anyway Golf has to worry, played right, teaches responsibility It teaches a thousand ways to Sunday The rules The etiquette The discipline it takes to become competent The whole thing

Delightfully dressed, father and son dressed similarly but not identically Everyone wore black trousers Everyone wore a shirt from the fuchsia family, but in different styles and colors Charlie wore black shoes and tiger white Everyone has a blurry frank- Headgear on his driver

Oh they shot 62.10 under par There are 20 teams and Tiger and Charlie are in sixth place. The guides are Matt Kuchar and his 13 year old son Cameron, 14 years old

On Sunday they play the second and final round. They are competitive because Tiger is still golfing well, his son is golfing well, and he is playing from a tee that is perfectly suitable for an 11 year old golfer despite having a ride Completed against the wind on a solid fairway, it went over 240 meters

There were three holes Tiger let Charlie go first, and when he drove long and in play, Tiger didn’t even bother putting his ball on a tee

On 18, a par-5, Charlie’s tee shot was nearly 150 yards ahead of his father’s Charlie played first and hit a good

He did his job Tiger put a thumb in the air and walked down the fairway He had no chance of catching up with his son not before they met at their ball
