Serena Williams’ husband on his daughter Olympia’s golfing skills

The Reddit co-founder gave a glimpse of his daughter playing golf. He captioned his picture, “I made the mistake of thinking my 4 year old would take mini-golf seriously (this footwear??), but it was still a great daddy-daughter date.”

Additionally, sharing a story of this post on his official Instagram handle, he added, “Golf icon in the making”. While it is no secret that Olympia loves sports, she tried her hand at a different sport for a change. 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena has been away from tennis over the last year due to a hamstring injury. Although unfortunate, the injury has given her the time to bond with Olympia in her own unique way: tennis lessons.
