TIGER WOODS will partner son Charlie in the PNC Championship for the third time next month.
The 15-time Major winner and his 13-year-old son, who finished seventh in 2020 and second last year, complete the 20-team field at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando from December 15-18.
The Woods’ are set to make a formidable partnership on the green again
Woods said: “We have been looking forward to this week all year and we can’t wait to team up together for our third PNC Championship.
“This is such a special opportunity as a dad to get to compete with my son against so many golfing greats and their family members.
“It is going to be a very special week and I know that Charlie and I will have a blast.”
Woods will return to professional action in the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, which starts on Thursday.
The former world No 1 will also partner Rory McIlroy in The Match against Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas on December 10.
Woods has not played since The Open Championship in July, when he missed the cut in what could prove to be his final Open at St Andrews.
Those two rounds over the Old Course took his total to nine this year after he finished 47th in the Masters and withdrew from the USPGA Championship following a third-round 79.
At Southern Hills, Woods was clearly in pain from the severe leg injuries he suffered in a life-threatening car accident in Los Angeles in February 2021.

His last major was 2019’s surprise win at the Masters.

How do you improve your golf score?
These simple tips will make your golf game more enjoyable.
- You should practice more than you play. Practice more to become better at your chosen skill. If you play too much, it can lead to bad habits.
- When you feel good, play. There will be times when you don’t feel like going out on the course. You shouldn’t be forced to do things that you don’t like. Instead, look for ways to make golf more enjoyable.
- Take breaks. Golfers like to take breaks during rounds to stretch, walk around, have lunch or just relax. Taking breaks helps your body relax and keeps you focused throughout the round.
- Get water! It’s easy for you to lose count of how many beverages you’ve consumed while on the golf course. Make sure you drink enough water so that you aren’t dehydrated. A good way to feel refreshed is to drink lots of water before, while, and after your game.
- Make sure you eat right. Consuming healthy foods like fruits, vegetables and low-fat milk products will give you energy to help you do well on your course.
- Keep hydrated. Drinking lots of water is the best way to stay hydrated. At least eight glasses of water should be consumed each day. This includes water from beverages (such as coffee), as well as plain water.
- Get warm. Before hitting the first shot in a round, warm up by walking or jogging for five minutes. Then, you should be able to move freely and feel limber.
- Keep your head down. It’s important that you keep your eyes focused on the ball when you tee-off. Do not look at the ball or pay attention to where it lands. Instead, you should focus on the hole.
- Good form is essential for a good swing. Proper form could mean different things for different people. But you should try to avoid swinging at your target. Instead, aim to strike the ball at the center of your target.
- Concentrate on the process. There are many things that go into a successful swing of golf, but focusing on the process will allow you to develop the best technique. If you struggle to keep your hands still, relax your grip. Or, if you struggle to maintain balance, then focus on maintaining good posture.
