Tiger Woods on the first hole of the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Tiger Woods will be adding a new stop to his playing schedule, which is not something that happens often.

It’s not a typical PGA Tour event, though; instead, it’s the PNC Challenge in December, a team event that features former major (and Players) winners competing in a scramble format with a family member. Tiger will be playing with his 11-year-old son Charlie, who has become quite the junior golfer (as you’d probably expect.)

Via Golf Channel:

The event, formerly known as the PNC Father Son Challenge, features 20 major champions and winners of The Players alongside a family member. Woods, winner of 15 major titles, will be making his tournament debut with his 11-year-old son.

The field will also include, for the first time, 2017 PGA champion Justin Thomas and his father, PGA professional Mike. Matt Kuchar, the 2012 Players champion, has previously played in the event with his father, but will this time tee it up alongside son Cameron, 13.

Here’s a look at the current field:

  • Mark Calcavecchia and son

  • John Daly and son

  • David Duval and son 

  • Jim Furyk and son 

  • Padraig Harrington and son

  • Lee Janzen and son

  • Tom Kite and son

  • Matt Kuchar and son

  • Bernhard Langer and son

  • Tom Lehman and son 

  • Greg Norman and son

  • Mark O’Meara and son

  • Gary Player and grandson

  • Nick Price and son

  • Vijay Singh and son

  • Annika Sorenstam and father

  • Justin Thomas and father

  • Lee Trevino and son 

  • Tiger Woods and son

The event will be carried live on Golf Channel, Peacock, and NBC in December, and you should expect to hear a lot more about it than you otherwise would given Tiger’s involvement. Let’s hope everyone has learned their lesson about putting all kinds of pressures and expectations on a famous child golfer!
