Tiger Woods will have one more chance to win a title this year.

The 15-time major champion and winner of a record-tying 82 PGA Tour events, will team with son, Charlie, 11, in the 2020 PNC Championship at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Orlando, Grande Lakes Resort, it was announced Thursday.

The tournament, which will feature 20 major champions competing alongside a family member, is Dec. 17-20.

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to be playing with Charlie in our first official tournament together,” Woods said in a release. “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, whose reign as the 2019 Masters champion ended last Sunday when he finished in a tie for 38th, has just one top-10 in nine starts on the PGA Tour this year.

Spectators will not be allowed at the tournament. NBC, Golf Channel and Peacock will team to broadcast the event.

The current confirmed field also includes Mark Calcavecchia, John Daly, David Duval, Jim Furyk, Padraig Harrington, Lee Janzen, Tom Kite, Matt Kuchar, Bernhard Langer, Tom Lehman, Greg Norman, Mark O’Meara, Gary Player, Nick Price, Vijay Singh, Annika Sorenstam, Justin Thomas and Lee Trevino.

The inaugural tournament in 1995 attracted 10 major winners.

This year’s purse is $1.085 million. The competition is a two-day, 36-hole scramble. Langer and his son, Jason, won the event in 2019.
