The PNC Championship takes place at Florida’s Ritz-Carlton Golf Club as 20 players who have either won a Major or The Players Championship team up with a relative who holds neither a PGA Tour nor LPGA Tour card.

The action takes place over two days and 36 holes with a scramble format. Last year, John Daly claimed the title with his son, John Daly II. However, it was one of the players who finished runner-up who created much of the interest.

Tiger Woods was making his first appearance in a tournament since injuring his right leg in a car accident the previous February. He accompanied his son, Charlie as they lost by two shots. He returns with Charlie despite recently having to pull out of the Hero World Challenge after developing plantar fasciitis. The Dalys will also be back as they try to defend their title.

Other legendary names in the field include six-time Major winner Sir Nick Faldo, who plays with his son Matthew, former World No.1 Bernhard Langer, who plays with his son Jason, and Gary Player, whose nine Major wins helped him achieve a career Grand Slam. The South African is who is accompanied by his grandson, Jordan. 

In addition, one of the current world’s top 10 men plays – PGA Champion and World No.8 Justin Thomas. The American teams up with his dad, Mike. Meanwhile, the player six places beneath him in the Official World Golf Ranking, Jordan Spieth, plays with his dad, Shawn.

From the women’s game, World No.2 Nelly Korda teams up with her father, the former tennis player Petr Korda, who won the sport’s Australian Open in 1998. Elsewhere, Annika Sorenstam is accompanied by her son Will McGee. Originally, Tom Watson had been scheduled to play alongside his son, Michael, but the 73-year-old is recovering from surgery after a Go-Karting accident.

Once again, much of the attention will be on Woods as he looks to end the year on a bright note after making his comeback in April’s Masters. The 15-time Major winner said: “We have been looking forward to this week all year, and we can’t wait to team up together for our third PNC Championship. This is such a special opportunity as a dad to get to compete with my son against so many golfing greats and their family members. It is going to be a very special week and I know that Charlie and I will have a blast.”

The teams will be competing for a purse of $1,085,000 as they battle for the Willie Park Trophy, with the winning team earning $200,000.
