"It's been great watching him progress as a junior golfer and it will be incredible playing as a team together in the PNC Championship", Woods said in a statement confirming his participation.

The PNC Championship, the brainchild of longtime IMG executive Alastair Johnston, has gone through several iterations over the years to try to keep current with the times.

Added to the field this year is Justin Thomas playing with his father, longtime Kentucky club pro Mike Thomas.

"I wanted it at a very, very early age", Woods said.

Returning in mid-July after a crown break to compete, Woods told Golf Digest and In an interview with Golftv having played a lot of golf with Charlie. "That's on him - whether he wants it or not".
