What's More Ferocious Than A Tiger?

 ("Charlie Woods Dazzles, While Tiger in Return, Grimaces and Grinds")

Who is the most popular player on the PGA tour right now? Of course, the answer is Woods. Charlie Woods that is.

At 12 years old all eyes are upon him as he and his dad captured the tournament yesterday. Ok, technically they didn't win, but really, does anybody actually care that two other guys took a couple of shots less than Charlie and what's his name.

And that five iron on 17 from 169 to about three feet, I expected the announcers to bolt from the booth, run down to the green and hoist the new king on their shoulders. Has there ever been a better swing in the history of this sport?

I know it was hard for Charlie to carry that limping, cart riding father of his for 36 holes. But he did so with such grace, never once making it appear he would have preferred another partner.

I am certain there will be thousands of words written in the coming days whether Charlie will be the family member to demolish Jack's record of 18 majors, maybe before his twenty first birthday. Or if he will wait until he finishes junior high before turning pro.

Is he truly Tiger 2.0? Without the bumps and bruises? 

What's more ferocious than a Tiger? Charlie Axel Woods.

Awesome performance by Charlie yesterday. With all the craziness in the world these days,
it was a wonderful diversion watching him / them

it was fun to watch. At twelve he is a golfer to watch. His near perfect swing is a joy.

Certainly happy for Tiger being with Charlie
He certainly singlehandedly screwed up so many things in his life including of course his health so it’s nice to see him in these nice moments of fatherhood
