Tiger Woods not only is the most compelling golfer ahead of the Masters, he is responsible for the most adorable scene to emerge as players prepare for the tournament on the hallowed grounds of Augusta National Golf Club.

Woods continued the work on his game he started last week and did so again on Monday by playing the front-nine with pal Mark O’Meara, but made sure to make time for his children, who greeted him on Augusta’s driving range along with longtime girlfriend Lindsey Vonn.

What transpired when Woods saw daughter, Sam, 7, and son, Charlie, 6, coming his way was nothing short of heartwarming as the three shared a long, warm embrace.

Adorable.

Woods also announced that for the first time since 2004 that he will participate in the Masters’ fun-filled Par-3 Contest on Wednesday, with both Sam and Charlie in tow. Previously referring that the contest, which usually involves players’ kids, wives or significant others handling the bag, as “a little bit distracting” during tournament preparations, Woods clearly has softened his stance a bit, and it all has to do with the little lights in his life.

“My two littles will be out there with me,” Woods said Tuesday, via Golf.com’s Lucia Hoffman. β€œIt’s special.”

Indeed. Woods has demonstrated on several occasions of late that he is completely dedicated to his children, with some even callously suggesting to the detriment of his career. But all those naysayers should reconsider such ridiculous stances given scenes such as the one that occurred on Tuesday.

The Par-3 Contest will air on ESPN on Wednesday afternoon. Expect plenty of adorable incidents to occur, not only with Woods and his children, either.
