In an exciting conclusion to the 2021 PNC Championship, John Daly and his son emerged victorious. They survived a tough fight put up by Tiger and Charlie Woods.
Team Daly birdied the par-5 18th hole to finish two shots ahead of Team Woods and earn $200,000 from the total purse of $1,085,000. Their final score of -27 is the lowest in the history of the tournament. Both Team Daly and Team Woods shot 57 in the final round of the scramble event. Tiger and son earned $80,000 for their second-place finish.
But just because they came in second, doesn’t mean they didn’t put on quite a show. The father-son duo managed to score an incredible 11 birdies in a row. However, Daly and son were able to hold them off in the end.
“We just had a blast all day … It got interesting and a little tight toward the end. It was a lot of fun,” Woods said. “I’m a little worn out and it was nice to have a cart.”

Daly II is a freshman on the University of Arkansas golf team. The game he showed this weekend at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club was much like his 55-year-old father’s when he was in his prime — long off the tee with an exceptional touch around the greens.
Defending champions Justin and Mike Thomas finished T3 with Stewart and Reagan Cink.
