Onlookers at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Florida were seeing double Thursday as Tiger Woods lined up to practice next to his playing partner.

Charlie Woods, the 15-time major champion's 11-year-old son, is starring alongside his father at the PNC Championship, previously known as the Father-Son Challenge.

Gary Player, the winner of nine majors, and current world No. 3 Justin Thomas were among the other stars appearing with relatives, but there was understandable focus on Woods and Woods.

Tiger celebrated his 2019 Masters win with his two children, later revealing they fought over his green jacket on the flight home, and he certainly appears to have taught Charlie a trick or two.

Clips of Charlie Woods' swing have existed for some time, but seeing his impressive action in tandem with his father's — right down to the club twirl — made for special viewing.
