How to watch Tiger and Charlie Woods (and the rest of the field) play in the 2020 PNC Championship

December 17, 2020

The PNC Championship, formerly known as the Father-Son Challenge, has been around since 1995. Yet many golf fans might be watching the team event for the first time this weekend, thanks to a certain 82-time PGA Tour winner making his debut with his 11-year-old son. (In case you’ve sworn off social media for the rest of 2020, Tiger Woods and his boy, Charlie, are in the field.)

The exhibition is a two-day, 36-hole scramble tournament held at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando. The field consists of two-player teams made up of a major champion or Players Championship winner and a family member.

Here is this week’s 20-team field:

Mark Calcavecchia and son Eric

John Daly and son Little John

David Duval and son Brady

Jim Furyk and son Tanner

Padraig Harrington and son Paddy

Lee Janzen and son Connor

Tom Kite and son David

Matt Kuchar and son Cameron

Bernhard Langer and daughter Jackie Langer John

Tom Lehman and son Sean

Greg Norman and son Gregory

Mark O’Meara and son Shaun

Gary Player and grandson James Throssell

Nick Price and son Greg

Vijay Singh and son Qass

Annika Sorenstam and father Tom

Justin Thomas and father Mike

Lee Trevino and son Daniel

Bubba Watson and father-in-law Wayne Ball

Tiger Woods and son Charlie

The defending champions are Bernhard and Jason Langer. It was the second time this team won the title, the first coming in 2014. Bernhard has also won twice with his other son, Stefan (2005 and 2006). This year, Jason was unable to play, so Bernhard enlisted the help of his daughter, Jackie Langer John.

Bernhard Langer and his son, Jason, won the 2019 PNC on the first playoff hole when Jason made a 16-foot eagle putt.

The teams play in a scramble format in which each golfer hits a tee shot and the team picks the best drive. Each golfer then hits a second shot from the chosen drive, the team then picking the best second shot and playing from there. Golfers repeat the process until finishing out a hole and posting a team score.

The exhibition will be aired on TV and can be watched online. Saturday’s play will be broadcast live. Sunday’s broadcast on Golf Channel and NBC will be on tape delay, but the action can be streamed live online. (All times Eastern).
