It was only the pro-am in a silly season event, but the first public sighting of Tiger Woods on a golf course since his car accident in February still felt significant.
He played alongside son Charlie (12) in the warm-up event for the PNC Championship at the Ritz Carlton GC in Orlando, Florida.
The main tournament starts on Saturday, with the Woods pairing playing alongside Justin Thomas and his father Mike in the first round.
