Charlie, when he first started playing,
00:02
I mean he's only 10 now but I'll never forget
00:05
when he first beat me.
00:06
I'd make sure that we'd only have putts
00:07
from about like eight or 10 feet
00:09
because he's so small that he couldn't see very far
00:11
so light putting's out.
00:13
Well I had missed the first putt.
00:15
I showed him the line.
00:16
Well he made it.
00:17
I didn't say anything and I wonder where he's gonna go
00:20
with this next one.
00:20
Well he puts it a foot from the hole and knocks it in.
00:23
Doesn't say anything.
00:24
Okay I put mine in a foot from the hole and knock it in.
00:26
Don't say anything and there was one hole to go.
00:29
He puts it a foot from the hole on the other side,
00:32
knocks it in, and before I could put my ball down,
00:36
he says, I win [chuckling]
00:38
and I thought God, that's my son.
00:42
It was a total walk off moment, dropped the mic,
00:44
and it was just the greatest moment
00:46
and I'm like that's how I was and I woulda done
00:50
the same thing to Dad and he did it to me.
