Tiger Woods speaks about playing with his son Charlie

For months after his car crash in February, Woods was sidelined from action. Not only was the 15-time major winner away from the course, but he was also away from the limelight and media. He barely made any public appearances, and even his return to the course was uncertain.

Of course, the 46-year-old was determined to return. Moreover, his comeback, along with his son, was perhaps the perfect re-introduction for Woods.

It goes without saying that the PGA Tour icon has had some precious words of advice for his son. According to Woods, he went to talk to his son when he realized that he was shooting high scores. He watched his son play alone, and then lose his temper after a bad hole, which he carried over with himself to other shots.

What advice does Woods have for Charlie?

“I said, ‘Son, I don’t care how mad you get. Your head could blow off for all I care just as long as you’re 100 percent committed to the next shot,” Woods said. “That’s all that matters. That next shot should be the most important shot in your life. It should be more important than breathing.”

Charlie and Woods lost the PNC Championship to John Daly and his son, who beat them by two strokes. Woods, in the end, was ecstatic to have played with his son after the difficult year he has had.
