2017 PNC Father/Son Challenge: Tee times, Pairings, TV schedule

 

One of the favorite golf tournaments each year for players and fans alike is the PNC Father/Son Challenge.

Not only do we get to see some of the great legends of the game, but we are given an inside look at the special relationships between the father and son teams on the golf course.

Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Greg Norman headline a field featuring 20 two-man teams.

Twenty-team field boasts 499 worldwide wins,60 major championships and 11 World Golf Hall of Fame Members.

David Duval and his stepson, Nick Karavites, will defend their 2016 title. Duval is one of five former winners, including Nicklaus, who will pair with 15-year-old grandson, Gary “G.T.” Nicklaus, Jr.

The 20-team field competes in a scramble format over 36 holes for the $1,085,000 prize purse and the Willie Park trophy, named after Willie Park, and his son Willie Park Jr., who combined to win the British Open five times.

To qualify for the PNC Father/Son Challenge, players must have won a major championship or The Players Championship. The professional’s partner must not currently hold a Tour card, and while the majority of partners in the history of the event have been the sons of the golf legends, the family-themed tournament has seen daughters and grandsons participate over the years.
