Charlie put his drive in the fairway at the par-five third hole of the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, then hooked a five-wood approach around some trees.
The ball bounced short of the green and settled three feet from the pin, Charlie giving a fist-pump just like his old man's before rolling in the putt.
A beaming Woods had a hug for his son, noting as they walked off the green, "First eagle!"
Not just fans on social media, Charlie even amazed his legendary father with some of his "incredible shots".
"It was some of the most incredible golfshots," Woods said with a laugh.
"He had the best time to be out there in this environment. I've seen this all along. A lot of the shots he hit I've seen this entire year, " he added.

"I really don't care about my game. I'm just making sure that Charlie has the time of his life and he's doing that. I'm making sure he is able to enjoy all of this," Woods said.
