Legendary golfer Tiger Woods and his son Charlie have teamed up for the PNC Family Championship tournament, which is being played in Orlando, Florida. While all the focus was on the 15-time major champion, it was his 11-year-old son Charlie who stole the show with an impressive eagle for Team Woods. Charlie, the youngest player competing in this year’s exhibition tournament with 20 teams, shocked many with his controlled movements at such a young age. Charlie’s clichés and manners have created a buzz on social media, with many fans and celebrities taking to Twitter to express their excitement.

Charlie put his drive down the fairway at the third par-five hole at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, then hooked a five-wood approach around a few trees.

The ball bounced off the green and settled three feet from the pin, Charlie punching his old man’s like before rolling into the putt.
