Tiger Woods to team up with son Charlie for PNC Championship

The unique PNC Championship takes place this week and for the first time ever, Tiger Woods will compete alongside his 11-year-old son Charlie.

Tiger Woods has mostly kept his children shielded from the public eye but this week the 15-time major winner will tee it up with his son Charlie beside him.

The PNC Championship requires that all participants have won a Major Championship or THE PLAYERS Championship for a spot in the field. If so, they can then team up with a member of their family to square off against 19 other teams in a 36hole scramble format.

This year’s event will include Justin Thomas playing with his father Mike, John Daly teeing it up with his son Little John, Bubba Watson playing with his father-inlaw and Greg norman playing with his son Gregory.

But all eyes will be on the paring of Tiger and Charlie Woods.

The PGATour’s Cameron Morfit reported that as Woods has kept his kids mostly out of the media spotlight, their interaction this week will be a focus of the event.

“The PNC will allow fans to see another side of Woods, as well. He has largely shielded his children from the cameras, but all 36 holes of this week’s event will be televised, allowing us to watch Tiger mentor his son the way Tiger’s dad, Earl, did for him. Earl used to jangle change in his pocket and slam on cart brakes to develop his son’s focus while standing over the ball”
