Formerly the Father-Son Challenge, the PNC Championship brings together PGA and LPGA Tour major champions and their families together to compete as a team in a 36-hole scramble.

"Having Tiger and his son in the field for the first time is a very special moment for the recently re-named PNC Championship", said Alastair Johnson, chairman of the tournament.

Previously this year, an amateur video, sneaking from afar, appeared on social media, in which Charlie hits the ball with delightful technique in the practice area of the junior event next to his father, who works as a caddiena.

The project will tell the story of Woods becoming the first Black golfer to win a major tournament, his racial identity and his impact on America. "It's been great watching him progress as a junior golfer and it will be incredible playing as a team together in the PNC Championship", Woods said.

Woods finished the coronavirus pandemic-delayed 2020 Masters this month in deflating style, with a final-round 76 that included a 10 on the par-three 12 - followed by five birdies in his last six holes. He begins to understand how to play.

In addition to four-time champion Langer, past champion David Duval returns along with 10-time major victor Annika Sorenstam, who made her debut a year ago.

Sage said the reproduction number - or R value - for the whole of the United Kingdom had dropped to between 1 and 1.1. Mr Hancock went on to say that government officials were working hard to map out an "agreed set of rules".


No fans will be allowed at the Florida tournament but it will be televised in the United States by NBC. He's asking me the right questions. But those days are long gone, and now I have to live them through him again, "Father Woods said with a smile and admitted to being his son's coach".

"It's been just an absolute blast to go out there and just be with him".

Earl Woods always made sure his son asked him to play, and Woods is taking the same approach with his own son. "It reminds me so much of me and my dad". Players must have won a major or The Players Championship, and their partner must not hold a PGA Tour card.

Mark Calcavecchia, John Daly, David Duval, Jim Furyk, Padraig Harrington, Lee Janzen, Tom Kite, Matt Kuchar, Tom Lehman, Greg Norman, Mark O'Meara, Nick Price, Vijay Singh and Lee Trevino are the other players now confirmed to be taking part.

Until deciding to play in the PNC Championship, it was thought Woods ended the year at the Masters.
