2019 PNC Father-Son Challenge field: Players, rankings

The 2019 PNC Father-Son Challenge field is set with the passing of the typical Friday entry deadline. The field is set for this event, played at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Fla.

The PNC Father-Son Challenge field is headlined by Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tom Watson, all playing with a family member in the event.

Typically, the professionals play with their sons. However, in recent years, pros have played with grandchildren, kids who are practically their children, daughters and their fathers.

The defending champions, Davis Love III and Davis Love IV, are not competing this year.

This is a 20-team event, with the tournament played as a 36-hole scramble of partners. The event is played Saturday and Sunday.

We do not have Monday qualifiers for this event. This is an invitation-only event and is considered part of the PGA Tour Champions Challenge season.

The field will be playing for a $1.085 million purse.

Historically, this tournament has a good field of legends, including Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tom Watson.
