PNC Championship: Tiger Woods to make debut alongside son Charlie

Woods was famously introduced to the sport by his father Earl, appearing on the Mike Douglas Show at just two years old, giving the television audience a glimpse of the raw talent that has carried him to 82 Tour wins.

The father-son duo will compete the 2020 PNC Championship - an event featuring 20 major winners and a relative - in Orlando, Florida, December 17-20. Woods is the host of the annual all-star event.

"Throughout this hour we hope that viewers see Tiger Woods in a new light and be challenged to think about what it is that makes him uniquely American", VP of content and features for ESPN Craig Lazarus said in a press release.

Tiger Woods still has one tournament left this year that might feel as big as any to him.

Tiger Woods won't be participating in The Match the day after Thanksgiving, but golf fans will still be able to consume content featuring the 15-time major victor next weekend.

He finished the coronavirus pandemic-delayed Masters this month in deflating style, with a final-round 76 that included a 10 on the par-three 12th - followed by five birdies in his last six holes. "He's starting to understand how to play". I've kept it competitive with his par, so it's been just an absolute blast to go out there and just be with him. "I said, 'You've just qualified to play in the Father-Son.' He looked very bemused by the fact". "It reminds me so much of me and my dad [growing up]".

Returning in mid-July after a crown break to compete, Woods told Golf Digest and In an interview with Golftv having played a lot of golf with Charlie.

The tournament is televised by NBC. "That's on him - whether he wants it or not".

Only players who have won a major championship or The Players Championship are eligible to enter a team, while their partner must not hold a PGA Tour card and be a family member.

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. Annika Sorenstam is playing with her father, Tom.
