PNC Championship: Who's in the field, plus TV times and format

0

The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Orlando hosts the 2020 PNC Championship and the marquee attraction is no doubt Tiger Woods and his 11-year-old son Charlie.

The 20-player field is packed with 67 major titles between 20 major champions. In fact, that’s one of the stipulations, that each twosome must have a golfer who won a major championship or the Players Championship.

Two-time Masters champ Bernhard Langer and his son Jason won the event last year in a three-team playoff. The pair also won it in 2014. In 2005 and 2006 Bernard teamed up with son Stefan Langer to win back-to-back titles. This time around, Bernhard will compete with his daughter Jackie Langer John.

Lee Trevino, 81, is playing in his 23rd event. He has never missed this tournament.

Total prize money is $1,085,000 with $200,000 going to the winning team.

There is a pro-am on Thursday and Friday and the two-day competition will be on Saturday and Sunday. The Ritz-Carlton is a par 72 that will play 6,853 yards over the weekend.
