Jason Oliveira: "So what do you do as a parent, live at the golf course if he could."

Phillip Tran, Aidan's Dad: "I go to the range for an hour, let's go chipping green."

It's not just Aidan's golf swing that has drawn comparisons to Tiger Woods the two also share the same birthday on December 30th the same day Aidan turned four Tiger celebrated his 32 birthday.
