Golf is not just a sport that is played for money or honor. It includes tournaments like the PNC Championship that bring together the various legacies of many great golfers from around the world. And taking part in this one-of-a-kind event is none other than the ‘Bad Boy’ of golf, John Daly and his son.

As the father-son duo gears up to take back what was theirs, many eyes are on the legend of the game, Tiger Woods, and his 14-year-old boy. Fans can’t help but keep themselves in high anticipation for the GOAT’s comeback. However, since he hasn’t confirmed his return, the question naturally arises in the community as to which other champions of the event are taking part in it. Curious, isn’t it?

Daly and his son were able to emerge victorious at the 2021 edition of the tournament against Tiger Woods and Charlie, as they registered a score of 27 under 117 over the two rounds. And, this time around, the record breakers have confirmed their appearance for the upcoming 2023 event. However, the runners-up, the 82X PGA Tour champ, has been on a break owing to his surgery and is only rumored to make a comeback at the Hеro World Challenge.

Nevertheless, a lot of past champions have confirmed their appearances for the tournament. Let us take a quick look at some of them.

1. Vijay Singh and his son Qass Singh: The duo emerged victorious in 2022, beating the defending champions of the past two years by two strokes. The 3X major champ finished at 118 (-26) and managed to clinch the trophy in their 16th try at the PNC Championship.

2. Justin Thomas and his father, Mike Thomas: The two lifted the trophy back in 2020 against Team Singh, who came in second place, beating them by 1 stroke. Moreover, the Ryder Cup star was able to register a score of 25 under 119 over the two days with his longtime club professional dad. However, commenting after the tournament, he said, “A part of you didn’t care who won; we were here as father and son to enjoy a special moment.”

3. Bernhard Langеr and his son Jason Langеr: The iconic golfer and his family managed to claim their fourth victory at the PNC Championship in 2019. The 2X major winner won the first two editions in 2005 and 2006 with his son Stefan, while the last two, including the 2014 one, were with his other son Jason. The question is, will they be able to increase their tally to 5?

4. Davis Lovе III and his son Dru Lovе: The American father-son duo won their second PNC Championship in 2018 by scoring 118 (-26) to win by three strokes over the runner-ups. Their first win came in 2012, and the 21-time PGA Tour winner would be looking to increase his record to three in 2023 as they enter the field.

5. Angel Cabrera and his son, Angel Cabrera Jr.: Joining the group is the infamous golfer who spent 30 months in jail owing to certain legal issues. The former Masters Champion would be eyeing redemption as the professional would be looking to replicate his glory from the 2017 PNC Championship, where he won by 1 stroke over Team Langer, scoring 25 under 119.
