Will we see Tiger Woods and Charlie Woods at PNC Championship with Nelly Korda?

The PNC Championship is one of the coolest events of the schedule and now it just got a little bit better. 

LPGA superstar and Olympic champion Nelly Korda has confirmed she will peg it up alongside her father Petr for the 2021 PNC Championship at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando. 

Korda, a six-time LPGA winner, qualified for the event by winning her maiden major at the 2021 KPMG Women's PGA Championship in the summer. 

Her father is a former professional tennis player and previously won the 1998 Australian Open. Korda's brother Sebastian is now a professional tennis player. 

The tournament attracts major champions and they play alongside their family members in teams.

Tiger Woods and Charlie Woods both played and sent the golf world into overdrive when you could see the similarities in their mannerisms on the course. 

Little Charlie made eagles, birdies and crushed his tee shots and fist-pumped his way around the course just like his father.

Korda, 23, told the media: "I am obviously excited to get to play alongside so many legends of golf but if I’m honest, what excites me even more will be having my dad playing alongside me.

"After all these years of him watching and supporting us kids from the sidelines in both golf and tennis, it is going to be so much fun to be in a team competing together.

"The whole family is looking forward to enjoying this in the run up to Christmas."

Only 20 teams are allowed in the field. Henrik Stenson has made the cut this year and will play alongside his 11-year-old son Karl. 

The tournament will take place over 16-19 December.
