But before his round last Saturday, Woods was filmed greeting his son Charlie’s caddie with a firm handshake as he called him ‘Big Dog’.

Woods then says to him: ‘Let’s go to work’ before turning back around and facing out onto the course.

The endearing moment sent fans on social media into meltdown with hilarious responses as to what the exchange reminded them of.

Another, sharing a picture of their pet dog, wrote: ‘Me coming home for the holidays to see my dad’s big dog.’

‘Thanking the Mall Santa for taking a picture with your kids,’ said another tweet next to the now iconic picture. 

A different fan wrote on X: ‘I am so sad to say I’m gonna start 2024 by unironically calling people “big dog” because of the tiger woods meme.’

The PGA Tour itself took notice of the moment, tweeting the clip out once more on Saturday morning.

‘The video that started the “Big dog” memes,’ they wrote.

Woods finished the tournament in a fifth-place tie with four other American teams with a -19 total.
