Golf legend Tiger Woods was spotted over the weekend caddying for his 14-year-old son Charlie at a junior golf tournament, walking quickly alongside his son’s bag and without a noticeable limp.

Woods, 47, carried Charlie’s clubs at the Notah Begay III Junior Golf Championship in Louisiana.

In a video shared on SB Nation’s Playing Through on X, Woods walked quickly alongside his 14-year-old as he played in the tournament.

Charlie finished in a tie for 17th place. Despite his son’s standing, the father-son duo seemed to relish their special bond on the course. This was the second time in recent months that Woods has caddied for Charlie, having also carried his clubs in September when Charlie clinched his spot in the November tournament.

Woods’ apparent speedy gait is an encouraging sign, as it comes over six months after he withdrew from the Masters Tournament due to aggravating his plantar fasciitis.

He later underwent “successful” fusion surgery on his ankle in April to address arthritis issues in his leg, which he injured in a serious single-car collision in February 2021.

In April, Woods told reporters he struggles with “constant” leg pain from those injuries, saying his leg remained “sore” after just the first round of the Masters.

As ESPN reported, Woods explained, “If I did it on the other one, not so fine,” regarding hopping on his right versus left leg.

Yet through the ongoing issues, Woods seems on the cusp of another comeback, according to fellow pro golfer Stewart Cink.

Cink, 50, told the Golf Channel he believes the 15-time major champion is gearing up for a return after beginning to practice again.

“He said that he started practicing, which I think is a great sign,” Cink stated. “I don’t know what he’s practicing for, but he said he started practicing. So that means he’s in go-mode for something, and I think we’re all pulling for him to feel as good as he can feel, and if he’s hitting golf balls, I think he’s going in the right direction.”
