When Woods achieved his 15th major victory in April a year ago, he received long congratulatory hugs from his children in front of TV cameras.
After Woods won the 2019 Masters, his first major tournament win in 11 years, he and Charlie - who hadn't been born yet when Tiger last won a major tournament - embraced after he walked off the 18th green.
The tournament will be played behind closed doors from 17-20 December because of coronavirus restrictions.
Woods was famously introduced to the sport by his father Earl, appearing on the Mike Douglas Show at just two years old, giving the television audience a glimpse of the raw talent that has carried him to 82 Tour wins.
Of course, the annual tournament is just for fun. the event won't count on anybody's career records or anything insane like that - but there actually is some money on the line! He was well out of contention when he took a 10 on the par-3 12th hole, and then followed with five birdies over his last six holes. One year it had Aaron Stewart play with Paul Azinger after the boy's father, Payne Stewart, died in a plane crash. LPGA great Annika Sorenstam of Sweden will also play with her dad. "Back in 1997, Tiger and I were next door neighbors at Isleworth".
"I had a big grin on my face", Johnston said.
Johnston began dropping hints through people close to Woods a few years ago, and Woods sounded interested.
This is in direct contrast to the profile the elder Woods had at the same age.
No fans will be allowed at the Florida tournament but it will be televised in the United States by NBC.
In an interview with GolfTV this summer, Woods spoke about his son's passion for golf. "He's starting to get into it". "He's starting to understand how to play". He asks me the right questions.
"It's been just an absolute blast to go out there and just be with him". It's a lot like doing things for me and my dad, "Woods said, speaking of his father's genuine pride".
"It's been great watching [Charlie] progress as a junior golfer", Woods said.
"I wanted it at a very, very early age", Woods said. Hall of Fame golfer Gary Player will compete alongside his grandson. "That's on him - whether he wants it or not".
Justin Thomas, Matt Kuchar, Lee Trevino, Jim Furyk, John Daly, Greg Norman and Tom Kite are just a few of the golfers in the field who will be playing with their fathers or sons. The format is a 36-hole scramble, and the victor gets the Willie Park Trophy.
In Masters Woods played the last seven holes in a very exceptional way.
