Meet the 20 team members for the 2021 event

On December 8th, Tiger Woods announced that he and his son Charlie had pledged to play in the PNC Championship this week, just 10 months after his car accident.

Unbelievable.

The last time we saw Woods play golf on TV was at this event in 2020. Time really is a flat circle.

The Woods duo isn’t the only big-name partnership on the way to Florida, however. Defending champion Justin and his father Mike Thomas will try to triumph again. Bubba Watson will play with his father-in-law, while Nelly Korda will play with her father Petr.

Here’s a look at the 20 partnerships in this year’s PNC championship that requires every team to have a major champion. The venue is the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, Orlando, Grande Lakes.

Reagan attended the Safeway Open for his father Stewert Caddy for the first time in 2020. Cink would win that week and after another good result in the Bermuda Championship (T-4) he decided to keep his son in his luggage. Time.

Little John followed in his father’s footsteps and currently plays golf at the University of Arkansas. Daly, who is now playing on the Champions Tour, has not made it into the top 10 of an event since the first week of May.
