PNC Championship -Father Son Challenge Winners and History

PNC Father-Son Challenge Winners and History

The PNC Father / Son Challenge is a “silly season” golf event that pairs PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions players with their children (primarily their sons). In order to qualify for the event, the father must have won either a Major Championship or The Players Championship. The junior player cannot be a current touring professional.

In 2005, Fuzzy Zoeller played with his daughter, Gretchen. Bernard Langer played with daughter Christina in 2013 and 2016. Arnold Palmer played with his grandson Sam Saunders in 2013. Saunders now is a touring professional.
