Tiger Woods’ son is following in his footsteps.

The pro golfer’s younger child, Charlie Axel Woods, 14, is quickly making a name for himself in the sport, playing alongside his father in several major tournaments.

Tiger spoke about how it felt to have his son by his side after the pair’s first tournament together in 2020.

“I don’t think words can describe it,” he told reporters in a PGA Tour video. “Just the fact that we were able to have this experience together, Charlie and I. It’s memories for a lifetime.”

Along with Charlie, whom he welcomed with his ex Elin Nordegren in February 2009, Tiger is also dad to daughter Sam Alexis Woods, born to him and Nordegren in June 2007. Though he and Nordegren split in 2010, Tiger spent plenty of time with his two kids growing up — both on and off the course.

“Charlie clearly loves the times he spends with his dad on the golf course,” a source told PEOPLE in 2020. “It’s a definite bonding activity for the two of them.”

Charlie is already skilled with a club, but Tiger has made it clear that the boy is “his own person” and can follow his own path in life. “I’m proud of whatever direction he chooses, whether he sticks with the game or not,” he said in an interview with PGA. “That’s one of the things that we made sure of. That Charlie was Charlie.”

Here’s everything to know about Tiger Woods’ son, Charlie Axel Woods.

He was born in 2009

Tiger and Nordegren welcomed their second child on Feb. 8, 2009, nearly two years after their daughter Sam Alexis was born.

The golfer announced the big news on his website, saying, “We want to thank everyone for their sincere best wishes and kind thoughts. Sam is very excited to be a big sister and we feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful family … We look forward to introducing Charlie to you at the appropriate time.” He also added that Nordegren and the baby were “doing great.”

Charlie’s name has a sentimental meaning

Tiger explained on his website that the name Charlie was one of a few options they had in mind, and when he was born, they felt it “just fit.” His middle name was already planned, as it holds special meaning to the family.

“As far as the Axel, that’s Elin’s brother’s name so we wanted to make sure it stayed in the family,” he wrote.
