It was a case of "like father, like son" as the legendary Tiger Woods returned to professional golf this past weekend to compete with his son Charlie.

The duo were partners at the PNC Championship, more commonly known as The Father/Son Challenge, held in Orlando, Florida. This was Woods' first event since a horrific car accident in February, which resulted in injuries that were feared to have put his career in jeopardy.

However, it was all smiles and jokes for the Woods as his 12-year-old son stole the show in the Sunshine State. Observers were in awe of how uncannily similar Woods Junior is to dad in dress sense, mannerisms and playing style.
