More about The PNC Championship

To get an invitation the qualifying player must have won a Major Championship or The Players Championship.

The guest team member can not be a touring professional at the time.

The PNC Championship is played over 2 days, 36 holes, in December each year.

Tournament Format: On each hole, each player drives and the best drive is selected. Each player then plays a second shot from the spot where the selected drive lies, and the best second shot is selected. This process is repeated until the hole is completed.

The winning team receives the Willie Park Trophy which is named after father and son British Open champions Willie Park Snr and Willie Park Jnr.

  • 2021: John Daly and son John Daly II
  • 2020: Justin Thomas and father Mike Thomas
  • 2019: Bernhard Langer and son Jason Langer
  • 2018: Davis Love III and son Dru Love
