Tiger Woods entered the second round of his return to competitive golf at the 2021 PNC Championship firmly in contention in Sunday’s final round. But there was a certain twist in this event as Tiger was not playing alone and the PNC Championship is not your normal professional tournament.
Tiger performed alongside his son, Charlie, in the two-man scramble format; the duo were only three strokes ahead at the start of the second and final round, coming just two strokes behind Team Daly on Sunday. Tiger and Charlie shot a 10 under 62 to get things going on Saturday at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando. It was good enough to put them near the top of the standings and in the tandem field chasing Stewart Cink and his son, Reagan, who together scored an Under-13 59 on Saturday.
The Woods duo followed that up with an under par 15 on Sunday, including a tournament record of 11 consecutive birdies. Despite a terrific turn from the father-son team, especially Charlie, John Daly and his son John II performed just as well to reach 15 under 62 as well.
The PNC Championship is not limited to golf. The event is about generations who come together to bond with their families. Even though Woods is not in his physical peak and faces a long way back to play on the PGA Tour, his competitive drive was on display. For the live score of the PNC Championship, click here.
