Tiger Woods’ 14-Year-Old Daughter Sam Makes Rare Appearance To Cheer On Dad & Younger Bro At Golf Tournament
A family affair!
Tiger Woods and son Charlie blazed their way to a second place finish at the PNC Championship over the weekend. The golf phenom and his 12-year-old son dazzled onlookers at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Orlando, Grand Lake in Florida, as a large crowd cheered on the father-son duo.
Tiger’s daughter, Sam, also made a rare appearance to cheer on her dad and younger bro. In photos obtained by The Sun, the 14-year-old sported a black tank top with gray shorts on Saturday, December 18, and matched the family “Sunday red” theme to close out the weekend. The teenager was accompanied by her dad’s girlfriend, Erica Herman, who Tiger was first linked to in September 2017.
The 45-year-old PGA pro shares kids Sam and Charlie with ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
Nordegren and the athlete divorced in 2010 after six years of marriage following Tiger’s cheating scandals. The California native eventually admitted to cheating on his wife with multiple women, including reality TV star Jaimee Grubbs and former nightclub manager Rachel Uchitel.
As OK! previously reported, Tiger and Charlie fired 11 consecutive birdies and finished in second place behind John Daly and his 18-year-old son, John Daly II.

“We got on a nice heater; Charlie was hitting the ball unbelievable,” Tiger proudly said of his son after the championship. “It [winning] would have had a special meaning in my heart for sure, there’s no doubt about that. And it still does.”
“The fact that I’m able to have this opportunity this year, even a couple weeks ago we didn’t really know whether or not I would be doing this, but here we are,” he continued. “And we had just the best time ever, and I just wish I could have walked down the fairways with him and been side by side with him the entire time like we were last year.”
The championship tournament marked the first time the Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree played golf professionally following his car accident earlier this year.
Tiger crashed his 2021 Genesis GV80 SUV into a ditch in Los Angeles on Tuesday, February 23, and suffered non-life-threatening injuries to his legs. The athlete was rushed to the hospital after the rollover crash that occurred at around 7 a.m. on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.
Following the accident, Tiger declared he was “lucky to be alive” and admitted he thought doctors were initially going to have to amputate his right leg.
