Several former winners of the doubles event with a family member have confirmed their presence at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club from December 14 to 17. Victorious last year, Vijah Singh and his son Qass fully intend to defend their title.
John Daly, Justin Thomas, David Duval, Stewart Cink and four-time tournament winner Bernhard Langer, with his second son Jason, will also be there.
Tiger Woods, schedule
On the other hand, the participation of Tiger Woods and his son Charlie remains hypothetical.
The final decision remains pending on the condition of Woods' ankle, which was operated on last April. The tiger, who will celebrate his 48th birthday at the end of the year, could make his umpteenth return to the game during this exhibition event where he is allowed to play in a cart.
Last month, we saw him training at Pebble Beach but it is impossible to say at the moment that the former world number 1 is able to hit full shots. His participation in the Hero World Challenge, the tournament he is hosting in the Bahamas, is also still up in the air.
In the list of players revealed in mid-October, there remains one free place which suggests that he could make his return to the PGA Tour at the end of November. If Tiger and Charlie Woods line up at the start of the PNC Championship 15 days later, it would be their fourth appearance in this tournament which they have not yet won.
Their best result is second place behind Daly and his son, in 2021. Eldrick Tont Woods, better known as Tiger Woods (Cypress, December 30, 1975), is an American golfer. Considered by many to be the best golfer of all time, as well as the best of the modern era, in his twenty-year career he won 110 professional tournaments, including 15 majors, making him the most successful player in the history; he held the top position in the OWG world rankings for a total of 683 weeks, of which 281 were consecutive (from June 12, 2005 to October 30, 2010), and is the only golfer to have won all four majors of the modern era within a single year (between 2000 and 2001).
In 2014 he became the first athlete in the world to have exceeded one billion dollars in earnings between victories and sponsors. He was subsequently surpassed by Michael Jordan and his wealth is estimated at 1.8 billion dollars by 2023, making him the second highest paid athlete ever.
In 2019, US President Donald Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor of the United States of America.
