At just 14 years old, Charlie Woods is already displaying the same sweet swing and winning attitude of his famous father

On Wednesday, Charlie Woods and The Benjamin School’s boys golf team won the gold medal at the FHSAA Class A state championship. All the while Charlie’s legendary father, Tiger Woods, was cheering them on.

It appears the ball doesn’t travel far from the fairway when it comes to the Woods’ gene pool, as the son looks, walks, and has the same mannerisms as his famous father. And just like Tiger Woods, he’s showing a knack for winning, with this week being no exception.

The freshman shot fourth out of the five-player team, finished tied for 26th overall in the tourney, and shot 78-76 over two days at Mission Inn Resort. That helped propel The Benjamin School to the fourth state title in its history.

The elder Woods is the winner of 15 PGA Tour majors, including capturing the green jacket at the Masters on five different occasions. However, Charlie can say he did something that Tiger never did in high school: Win a state championship.

Being a golfing prodigy runs in the family. Tiger Woods’ rise to notoriety started when he was only two years old, as he famously sank a putt on The Mike Douglas Show in 1978. He would then go on to have one of the most storied amateur careers ever before eventually conquering the PGA Tour.

During his high school years, Tiger was the then-youngest winner of the U.S. Junior Amateur, which he won three times starting in 1991. He would later play for the Stanford Cardinal, for whom he won a record-tying 11 tournaments in two years.
