TIGER WOODS will tee it up with his 11-year-old son Charlie in an event in Orlando next month.
The 44-year-old will make his debut in the 2020 PNC Championship – where 20 major winners compete as a team with a family member at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club from December 17-20.
The 15-time major winner said: "I can't tell you how excited I am to be playing with Charlie in our first official tournament together.
"It's been great watching him progress as a junior golfer and it will be incredible playing as a team together in the PNC Championship."
Europe's Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington is also in the field along with the likes of John Daly, Bernhard Langer, Gary Player, Greg Norman and Annika Sorenstam.
Tiger comes from an amazing golf family starting with his father Earl Woods.
His niece Cheyenne Woods, daughter of Woods' half-brother Earl Jr, turned pro in 2012.
They both learned the game from Tiger's late father Earl, a former lieutenant colonel in the US Army, who served two tours of duty in Vietnam.
And Tiger's son Charlie appears to have inherited his father's family genes – sweeping all junior tournaments before him and has been called a child golf prodigy.
Tiger has been seen caddying for his protegee son in the past.
Back in August Woods caddied for his son just a week after playing in the USPGA Championship – the first golf major of the year.
Golf coach Derrick Payne caddied alongside Tiger and wrote on social media: "Surreal… just surreal. I have a 15+ year career in the golf business because of this one man right there. That's it. Without him I would have to get a real job.
"Special thanks to @cgafernandez for allowing me the opportunity to meet one of the best athletes of all time in such an intimate setting.
"Tiger and Charlie, both couldn't have been nicer. Just genuinely nice people. Can't say enough nice things about Jonah either… proud to carry your bag anytime.
"The fact that you didn't just shank the first teeball in front of Tiger freaking Woods is an accomplishment in itself."
Charlie's victory was even labelled "the second coming" by golf fans.
One Twitter user said: "Imagine playing in a junior tournament and the caddie for your opponent is Tiger Woods."
The 44-year-old father previously said he had nightly putting contests with his son, and has spoken about the 11-year-old's interest in the sport.
Woods Sr told GolfTV last month: "He’s starting to understand how to play. He’s asking me the right questions.
"I’ve kept it competitive with his par, so it’s been just an absolute blast to go out there and just, you know, be with him.
“I analyse his swing all the time. I wish I could rotate like that and turn my head like that and do some of those positions.
"But those days are long gone, and I have to relive them through him.”
