Team Woods are back … but bigger!

Team Tiger, runners-up at last year’s PNC Championship, are looking to go one better plus it would be hard to look passed them considering Charlie’s form and growth spirt.

 

Charlie no longer looks like a little boy and he’s going to be bringing the ‘Woods’DNA’ fire power to the tee this year.

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

 

 

“We have been looking forward to this week all year and we can’t wait to team up together for our third PNC Championship,” Tiger said in a statement. “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.”

Also in this year’s field are the 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 No. 1 player in the Rolex Rankings, also is in the field.

The PNC will mark Tiger’s third consecutive week of competition. He will be playing his Hero World Challenge in The Bahamas in the first week of December and then the latest iteration of Capital One’s The Match, where he paired with Rory McIlroy to take on Spieth and Thomas, on Dec. 10 in Florida.
