Jack Nicklaus will play in PNC Father/Son Challenge event

Jack Nicklaus will team up with his son Jackie to compete in the PNC Father/Son Challenge.

Nicklaus headlines a field of 20 father-son teams aiming to take down the Love family, Davis Love III and son Davis Love IV, in a tournament revived in 2012 after a three-year absence due to financial and sponsorship issues.

The tournament will be played Dec. 14-15 at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club near Orlando, Fla., and air on NBC. The format is a 36-hole scramble.

Nicklaus won this tournament in 1999 with Jackie as his partner then as well.

Two of the fathers in the field will actually be teeing it up with their daughters, as Bernhard Langer will team with Christina Langer, while Fuzzy Zoeller plays alongside daughter Gretchen Chappo.
