Charlie Woods, 11, ran away with a U.S. Kids Golf event over the weekend in Florida, winning the nine-hole tournament by five strokes with his father, Tiger Woods, serving as his caddy.

Charlie shot 3-under par — with a trio of birdies and no bogeys — to bring home the victory at Hammock Creek Golf Club in Palm City.

Watching the father-son bond on the course brought back memories of Tiger's relationship with his own father, the late Earl Woods, who guided his son's career from the moment Tiger became a golf prodigy at 5 years old.

Tiger, who also serves as Charlie's coach, spoke with Golf Digest last month about watching his son's game blossom.

“I’m still winning … for now. He’s starting to get into it," Woods said. "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, you know, and just be with him. It reminds me so much of me and my dad."

Memories of Tiger and Earl, who died at 74 in 2006, also resurfaced when Tiger won his fifth Masters title last year. After the final putt, he shared a big hug with Charlie, similar to the one he shared with Earl when he won his first green jacket in 1997.

"Charlie and I have been playing quite a bit together," Woods told Golf World. "In the backyard generally every night we go out and have putting matches. The winner gets to keep the green jacket in the closet."
