“Although it has been a long and challenging yearI’m very excited to close it out by competing in the PNC Championship with my son Charlie. I will play like a father and could not be more excited and proud“, wrote Tiger Woods on his Twitter account.

The PNC Championship is a golf tournament that takes place in Orlando (USA) with a rather unique premise: they dispute it champions of a major together with a member of his family. Formerly known as the Father / Son Challenge, this year’s edition will take place from December 16-19.

Tiger and Charlie Axel Woods, 12 years, participated in the 2020 PNC Championship, where they reached seventh place. This tournament will be the first let Tiger Woods dispute since the accident He suffered on February 23 in Los Angeles (USA), which left him with significant physical consequences, especially in his right leg, from which he is still recovering.

“I believe that something realistic for me it is play on the PGA Tour someday, but never full time, never again (…). But I do pick and choose a few tournaments a year, “he said in an interview with Golf Digest.” This is how I think I’m going to play golf from now on. It is an unfortunate reality, but it is my reality, I understand and accept it, “he added.

“After me back surgery in 2017 it was like i had to climb everest one more time. I had to and I did. This time I don’t think I have the body to climb it and that’s fine. I can play golf, and if my leg is good enough, maybe I can play a tournament here or there. But going up the mountain again I don’t think is a realistic expectation for me, “he argued.
