Tiger Woods' son Charlie was on hand for the first time to see his dad win a golf tournament on Sunday. He took a pretty cute photo, hopped into pops' arms, and then after it was all over Tiger talked about their relationship.

Here's what Woods told ESPN:

"This was the first win he's ever been at. That's what makes it special for both of us. He's never seen me win a golf tournament. (Daughter) Sam was there when I won the U.S. Open in '08, and she loves to look at the YouTube videos. Charlie has never had that, never felt what it's like to be with the trophy."

A pretty cool moment from somebody who almost never talks about anything besides himself and golf.

When asked whether Charlie would become a golfer, Woods responded:

"He likes playing, likes going out there and giving it a hit. He likes anything where there is contact with a bat and a ball or any hand-eye sport."

And Charlie likes the fist pump.

"He has done that and he's kind of cute when he does."

My favorite line, though, was Tiger's response when a reporter asked if Charlie was a Rickie Fowler fan.

"My kid is not going to wear a flat bill (cap)."

Thank God.
