Tiger Woods shows flashes of greatness in top-10 finish with son Charlie at PNC Championship

Vijay Singh and his son won the PNC Championship on Sunday, while Tiger Woods showed flashes of the greatness he still possesses on the golf course.

Woods returned to action alongside his son Charlie in Florida this weekend for the unique team event in Florida, which continues to grow in popularity every year.

Team Woods ultimately finished in a tie for eighth place on 20 under par.

Team Singh took the win on 26 under ahead of John Daly and his son and Justin Thomas and his father, who both finished in a tie for second place.

But the PNC Championship is about a lot more than winning and for Woods and his son, it was another great occasion.

"It was great being with Dad after working so hard to get here - for me school, and him just the injury," 13-year-old Charlie Woods said. "Being out there with a great atmosphere and everyone being out there, it was awesome."

Woods and his son fell out of contention with a bogey on the par-4 seventh hole when both drove into the woods.

For Team Woods, their best shots were on Saturday, when they played well enough to earn a place in the final group.

Woods also showed flashes of the greatness - and power - that saw him win 15 majors on the final day, notably when he hit his approach on the par-5 fifth to 15 feet, giving his son Charlie a very makeable eagle putt, which he holed to get them to within two shots of the lead.

In their third year playing this event, it was the first time Woods allowed his son to join him for interviews.

"I feel like I already knew what he was capable of, and then yesterday, that's the best he's ever played in a while. And that kind of shocked me a little bit," Charlie said as his father looked on.

"I used to be good," Woods joked.

Woods continues to battle plantar fasciitis in his right foot but played well despite a limited schedule and his ongoing health issues.

"It's very impressive. You can tell, he's very, very strong, very fit right now. It's just dealing with the other issues," Thomas said.

"I wasn't joking yesterday when I said it: When he's feeling well, he's longer than I am with a driver. But I'm sure he would trade 10 yards to be able to walk every day and feeling well. But yeah, it's very impressive. You can tell, he's very, very strong, very fit right now. It's just dealing with the other issues."

The important thing is that Woods had fun playing alongside his son, whatever the future holds for the former world number one.

"We had the most amazing time inside the ropes with each other," Woods said.
