The PNC Championship 2023, currently taking place in Orlando, marks a truly special occasion for Tiger Woods. It's almost a family affair, as he's playing with his 14-year-old son Charlie in the traditional golf pairs tournament.

However, this time Big Cat has another Woods at his side, in the form of his daughter Sam Alexis Woods.

In Florida, 16-year-old Sam Alexis will act as caddy for her brother and father, in front of the eyes of the entire golfing world.

This event could be seen as a reunion for the Woods family and risks overshadowing the PNC Championship itself, previously referred to as the "Father & Son Challenge" until 2019. Charlie and Tiger have already competed in this tournament on four occasions in the past.

Following their near win in 2021, where they finished as runners-up only to John Daly and John Daly II, the two Woods are now dreaming of success in this year's competition.

Let's see if they can make it a reality.

The Pnc Championship 2023 in Orlando, Florida witnessed the Woods family reunite for the traditional golf tournament featuring father-son pairs. Tiger Woods, accompanied by his son Charlie for the fourth consecutive year, also had his daughter, Sam Alexis, as his caddie for the first time in his career, making the championship extra special for him.

The Californian golf legend is determined to clinch victory this year with his family team, having finished as runners-up in 2021 to the Daly duo.

The tournament features a variety of talented golfers, including the reigning champions Vijay and Qass Singh, and the 2021 winners, Justin and Mike Thomas.

Justin Thomas, who happens to be Tiger Woods' best friend, is also a role model for Charlie. Additionally, the renowned golf queens Annika Sorenstam and Nelly Korda will also be participating with their respective sons and fathers.

Petr Korda, Korda's father and a former tennis champion, will partner with his daughter, the only female golfer in the event participating with her father.

The Kuchar team had a favorable start, but the Woods' team is well-positioned to compete for glory and achieve their elusive victory this time.

The Pnc Championship offers high-quality golfing entertainment and showcases the beauty of family bonding through sport.
