Golf fans everywhere look forward to the PNC Championship each year. This year is special for the PNC Championship, as Tiger Woods is returning to the course for the first time since his car accident. Alongside his son Charlie, Tiger plans to come back in winning fashion at the PNC Championship. So, you won’t want to miss the 2021 PNC Championship. While the PNC Championship was originally called the Father-Son Challenge, its recent change lets pro golfers team up with their parent or child. Hence last year’s champions: Justin Thomas and his father Mike Thomas.
