Excitement is building as golf legend Tiger Woods and his son Charlie gear up for their fourth appearance together at the upcoming PNC Championship in Orlando next month. The duo has a history at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, with their notable tied-for-second finish in the 2021 tournament.

Tiger Woods, making a comeback after his 2021 car accident and a recent bout with plantar fasciitis, will mark his return to competitive play at the Hero World Challenge next week. Following this, he eagerly anticipates teaming up with his son once again at the PNC Championship, expressing his enthusiasm for the special opportunity to share the love of golf with Charlie.

"It is an amazing gift to be able to share my love of golf with Charlie, and we genuinely do look forward to playing in the PNC Championship all year," Woods shared. "Competing together, against a field of so many golfing greats and their families, is so special."

Woods, who recently declared himself pain-free after surgery on his right ankle and foot, is set to participate in back-to-back tournaments with the PNC Championship taking place from December 14 to 17. Notably, the tournament allows the use of a golf buggy for players, and Woods and Charlie aim to surpass their impressive tied-for-second finish from the previous year.



The PNC Championship, spanning 36 holes, gathers major champions or winners of The Players Championship. Originating as a father-son event, it has evolved to include players partnering with daughters, grandchildren, and even parents. Noteworthy additions to this year's field include the formidable duo of Steve Stricker, a three-time major winner on the PGA Tour Champions, and his daughter Izzi, a state high school champion from Wisconsin.

Padraig Harrington, participating for the sixth year, teams up with youngest son Ciaran this time. Harrington reflects on the unique nature of the PNC Championship, expressing how the event has sparked his son's passion for the game. The tournament also welcomes back Lee Trevino, an 84-year-old legend, who holds the distinction of being the only player to have competed in every PNC Championship since its inception in 1995. The stage is set for a memorable family affair, uniting generations and showcasing the enduring spirit of golf.
