The PNC Championship tournament featured a thrilling final in Orlando, Florida, with Tiger and Charlie Woods achieving an incredible success with a total of 119 (60 59, -25). The Langers, Bernhard and Jason, did well to outsprint the Duval team, in 2nd place with 121 (-23), and the Singh team, 3rd with 122 (-22).

In the second and final round at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club it was Charlie Woods who shone, after a not too exciting first round, delivering predestined shots and a series of winning putts that enchanted the audience present.

The Woods placed fifth at 125 (-19), leading their opponents by six places in the second 18 holes. After 9 years since their first victory (2013) and 4 years since their last (2019), the Langers achieved another well-deserved victory in the pairs competition formerly known as the Father/Son Challenge.

Bernhard Langer, two-time Major champion and golf specialist, achieved his fourth success in the tournament. The 66-year-old German said he was happy and proud to be able to share these moments with his children, a unique and indescribable joy.

Throughout his career, Bernhard Langer achieved a total of 74 tournament victories. Eldrick Tont Woods, better known as Tiger Woods (Cypress, December 30, 1975), is a renowned American golfer. Due to his exceptional skill in the game, he is considered by many to be the best golfer of all time and the best of the modern era.

His decades-long career boasts 110 professional tournament victories, including 15 majors, making him the most successful player in the history of the sport. Furthermore, he held the top position in the OWG world rankings for a total of 683 weeks, of which 281 were consecutive, holding one of the most impressive records.

He is the only golfer to have completed the Grand Slam of the modern era, winning all four majors in a single year, precisely between 2000 and 2001. In 2014, Tiger Woods achieved an even more surprising milestone, becoming the first athlete in the world to have accumulated earnings of over a billion dollars, thanks to his victories and sponsors.

Although he was later surpassed by Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods' worth is estimated at 1.8 billion dollars by 2023. This places him in second place in the ranking of the highest paid athletes of all time. Finally, in 2019, the President of the United States of America Donald Trump wanted to honor the golfer's extraordinary career by awarding him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor that the American nation can offer.
