Tiger and Charlie Woods set to return for third PNC Championship appearance

Tiger and Charlie Woods, runners-up in last year’s PNC Championship, return for another shot at the title.

Team Woods made a record-breaking birdie run in the final round of last year’s PNC, but fell just short of taking down the team of John Daly and his son, John II, who plays collegiate golf at the University of Arkansas. to get.

The tournament, which pairs a big winner with their parent or child, will be played December 17-18 at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club in Orlando. Tiger announced on Friday that he and his son, Charlie, would once again compete in the scramble event, joining Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas as headliners in this year’s field.

“We’ve been looking forward to this week all year and we can’t wait to team up for our third PNC championship,” Tiger said in a statement. “This is such a special opportunity as a father to compete with my son against so many golf greats and their relatives. It will be a very special week and I know that Charlie and I will have a blast.”

Also in the field this year are defending champion Dalys and World Golf Hall of Famers Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, Mark O’Meara, Gary Player, Nick Price, Vijay Singh, Annika Sorenstam and Lee Trevino. Nelly Korda, the number 1 player in the Rolex Rankings, is also participating.

The PNC marks Tiger’s third consecutive week of competition. He will play his Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas the first week of December and then the latest iteration of Capital One’s The Match, where he will team up with Rory McIlroy against Spieth and Thomas on December 10 in Florida.

Tiger made an unexpected return to competitive golf this year in the majors, making the cut at both the Masters and the PGA Championship and saying an emotional farewell to St. Andrews. While Tiger shocked the golfing world with his 1-under 71 in the opening round of the Masters, his first official game since his car accident in Southern California, it was also clear that the rigors of golfing and walking courses are hard on his surgically-converted right leg. repaired.

Woods was forced to withdraw after the third round of the PGA Championship and skipped the US Open to ensure he could return to St. Andrews, where he won The Open twice. The Hero was Woods’ first competitive appearance since St. Andrews.

“Tiger is finding more and more ways to get some stability in his leg,” his close friend and Golf Channel commentator, Begay, said in a recent appearance on SiriusXM.

“It really created some big challenges in St Andrews. I had a chance to talk to him on the round out there. It’s just constant discomfort. It’s just hard to focus on golf, which is hard enough, let alone deal with the literal pain of your leg aching all day long. I know that once he feels he can be competitive, we’ll see him.”
