ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods and 13-year-old son Charlie are returning to the PNC Championship with hopes of doing one better than last year.
The 20-team field is for winners of majors or The Players Championship and a child or parent.
Tiger Woods is making a bigger impact off the course than inside the ropes, and he was rewarded with a $15 million bonus from the PGA Tour's Player Impact Program.
Woods won the award for the second straight year while playing slightly more often.
The PGA Tour's social media army probably meant well.

Rory McIlroy has been in this position many times. For Ryan Fox, it's a new experience.
Two golfers with very different profiles are vying to finish a turbulent year on the European tour as its No.
Rory McIlroy remains hopeful that the fractured state of golf between established tours and Saudi-funded LIV Golf can heal. He said Tuesday that probably won’t happen until two lawsuits are decided and Greg Norman is no longer involved in LIV Golf.
All anyone seems to talk about is money in this disruptive year of golf, and the LPGA Tour should not be left out of the conversation.

PHOENIX (AP) — Bernhard Langer's body sends constant, painful reminders from 50 years of professional golf.
