Orlando, Fla. – Tiger Woods and 13-year-old son Charlie are returning to the PNC Championship to go one better than last year.
The 20-team field is for the major winners or players’ championship and child or parent. This will be Woods’ third time playing. A year ago he and Charlie finished 1 shot behind John Daly and his son.
The 36-hole event, televised on NBC, is Dec. 17-18 at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando.
“We’ve been looking forward to this week all year,” Woods said. “This is such a special opportunity as a father to compete with my son against so many golfing greats and their families. It’s going to be a very special week and I know Charlie and I are going to have a blast.”
Woods has not competed since losing the British Open at St. Andrews in July. He is playing next week in the Bahamas in the Hero World Challenge, a 72-hole tournament against a 20-man field of the world’s best players.
It also featured a made-for-TV exhibition on December 10 with Rory McIlroy partnering with Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth.
This will be seven rounds in 18 days.
Thomas and Spieth will join their fathers at the PNC Championship. Thomas and his father, longtime club professional Mike Thomas, won in 2020.
Annika Sorenstam is playing again, this time with her son Will. The PNC field includes Nellie Korda and her father, Peter, a former Australian Open tennis champion.
