A dad and golf buddy he can count on. Oliver Hudson was spotted out golfing with father figure Kurt Russell days after being dramatically disowned by his biological father, Bill Hudson. Oliver, who gave Bill a “Happy Adandonment Day” shoutout on Father’s Day, teed off with Russell in New Orleans on Wednesday, July 1.
Both clad in polos and shorts, the father-son duo looked content to spend quality time together.
Oliver’s sister Kate Hudson simultaneously thanked Russell for being a great dad on Instagram on Dad’s Day. “Pa, just simply… Thank you Happy Fathers Day I love you to the moon and back. #HappyFathersDay,” the Almost Famous alum captioned an adorably happy black-and-white photo with her mom Goldie Hawn’s longtime partner.

As exclusively revealed by Us Weekly, both Oliver and Kate weren’t phased by their biological dad publicly disowning them following the Father’s Day drama.
“They weren’t surprised at all that Bill spoke out,” a source close to the siblings told Us. “He’s always trying to clear his name and his image.” The insider explained that Goldie’s kids had “zero relationship” with Bill and that “they don’t care…It’s been this way, and he’s been saying this stuff forever.”
“Oliver was just trying to be funny by posting that comment,” another source added. “In retrospect, he probably should have thought twice before putting that out. But what’s done is done.”
Hawn and Bill divorced in 1980 when Kate was just 4 years old. Russell raised the brother-sister duo with the Overboard star.
