Woods has largely kept his children, Charlie and 13-year-old daughter Sam, out of the public eye, although both were on hand when he won the 2019 Masters for his first major title in more than a decade.
Formerly known as the Father/Son Challenge, the PNC Championship will be played at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando from December 17-20 and feature major winners and family members as competing teams.
Woods wrapped up his official year with an eventful Sunday in the Masters.
"He's starting to get into it", Woods told GOLFTV earlier this year. "It's been great watching him progress as a junior golfer and it will be incredible playing as a team together in the PNC Championship", Woods said in a press release Thursday.
Tiger Woods won't be participating in The Match the day after Thanksgiving, but golf fans will still be able to consume content featuring the 15-time major victor next weekend. He was well out of contention when he took a 10 on the par-3 12th hole, and then followed with five birdies over his last six holes. He asks me the right questions.
"Tiger loves spending time with Charlie on the golf course, but he has a completely different vibe than Earl had while working with him", the insider said. "It reminds me so much of me and my dad [growing up]". I wanted it at a very, very early age. "I said, 'You've just qualified to play in the Father-Son.' He looked very bemused by the fact". Hall of Fame golfer Gary Player will compete alongside his grandson.
Only players who have won a major championship or The Players Championship are eligible to enter a team, while their partner must not hold a PGA Tour card and be a family member.
According to Sky Sports, Greg Norman, Padraig Harrington, John Daly, Lee Trevino, Vijay Singh, Mark Calcavecchia, Jim Furyk, David Duval, Lee Janzen, Tom Kite, Matt Kuchar, Tom Lehman, Mark O'Meara and Nick Price are the other players now confirmed.
In addition to four-time champion Langer, past champion David Duval returns along with 10-time major victor Annika Sorenstam, who made her debut previous year.
