Defending champions Vijay and Qass Singh have confirmed their entry along with past champions, John Daly (2021), Justin Thomas (2020), David Duval (2016), Stewart Cink (2013) and Bernhard Langer (2005, 2006, 2014, 2019) for the 2023 PNC Championship at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Orlando, Grande Lakes, Dec.14-17.
Daly will play with John Daly II, Thomas will play with his father Mike, Duval and Cink will team up with their sons, Brady and Reagan, while Langer will play with son Jason, with whom he has won two PNC Championship titles.
Singh explained, “I can’t tell you what it meant to win last year with Qass after 16 attempts. This tournament is so special to us, and it is such an important week for our family every year. We love everything about the tournament, from playing amongst so many legends of the game, to getting to know their kids, to just spending quality time with my son as we enjoy this unique inside the ropes experience together. I have played in so many tournaments all around the world over the years, but it genuinely is hard to think of a week that I look forward to and enjoy more than the PNC Championship!”
Thomas, a two-time US PGA Champion, commented, “Sharing the PNC Championship experience with my dad and family is the perfect way to finish my year on a high note. My dad has been such an important part of all aspects of my golf journey – he introduced me to golf, he’s coached me and mentored me throughout my career and now, I feel so lucky that we now have this unique opportunity to compete together as teammates alongside so many golfing icons each year. This will be our fourth PNC Championship playing together and we look forward to many more!”
This is the 12th year PNC Bank has been the tournament’s title sponsor. The event was renamed the PNC Championship in 2020, reflecting the world class talent at this inclusive family tournament that showcases the special bonds that the love of golf creates.
The tournament, which will be broadcast live across NBC, GOLF Channel and Peacock, attracts major champions whose victories this year span 1959 to the present day. Last year, the PNC Championship gathered a field of golfing greats that had won 73 major titles. With only 20 teams competing, players past and present have shown unprecedented interest in campaigning for a spot in the star-studded line-up.
The PNC Championship has continued to evolve and develop since the inaugural tournament in 1995, when 10 major winners gathered with their sons. The tournament now features 20 major champions and their relatives competing in a two-day, 36-hole scramble for the Willie Park Trophy.
To qualify for the PNC Championship, players must have won a major championship or The Players Championship. Their partner must not hold any playing status on a professional Tour.
The PNC Championship is operated in partnership by IMG and NBC Sports.
