Day 2 update: Tiger and Charlie teed off their second round at 9:24 a.m. ET.
The PGA Tour wrapped up its official schedule for the 2020 calendar year, but this weekend brings a fun unofficial event with even more reason to watch than normal this year. The PNC Championship takes place in Orlando, Florida this weekend, and the annual “Father-Son” Challenge will run 36 holes on Saturday and Sunday.
It’s called the Father-Son Challenge, but should probably be called something else since this year legendary Hall of Fame golfer Annika Sorenstam is taking part with her father Tom.
The big pairing this year will be Tiger Woods playing with his son Charlie. We know plenty about Tiger, but Charlie is developing into a solid young golfer in his own right. He’s won a junior tournament, and learning from an all-time great certainly doesn’t hurt. They’ll be joined by the likes of Justin Thomas and his dad, Matt Kuchar and his son, and John Daly and his son, among many others. The event airs on NBC properties.

The two rounds will be played using a two-person scramble. Each golfer in the pair hits a tee shot and they then play the best shot of the two drives. The lesser drive is placed within one club length and then each golfer plays their next shot. The better second shot is used and the process repeats itself until the hole is finished. The pros will likely have the better drive most of the time, but approach shots and puts could benefit the amateurs.
