Steve Stricker, captain of the USA Ryder Cup golf team said it: the match between the USA and Europe scheduled in Wisconsin in 2021 will not be postponed and the goal will be to play it with the crowd. He said: "We are talking about an event that boasts a unique atmosphere, so the hope is to make this event truly special, with the full support of the fans.
We can count on great champions but also on talents of the caliber of Collin Morikawa, Matthew Wolff. But there are many players marked on my notebook. And then I count on recovering Brooks Koepka as best we can. We need him."
Tiger Woods on the green with 11-year-old Charlie!
Father and son will play the PNC tournament. The event will take place December 19-20 at the Ritz-Carlton Club in Orlando, Central Florida. At the 2019 at Augusta National Woods hugged his son after winning the Masters for the fifth time, after 4 back operations.
It was his 15th Major, but his first triumph in front of his son. Aaron Stewart once made tandem with Paul Azinger after the boy's father, Payne Stewart, died in a plane crash. Annika Sorenstam is playing with her father Tom.
On the pitch this year Justin Thomas with his father Mike Thomas, a pro from Kentucky. For Johnston, Woods' yes is fantastic news: they were neighbors on Isleworth when Woods went pro in 1996. After 23 years, Tiger said yes.
The tournament will be behind closed doors due to Covid. The tournament will be broadcast on Nbc. Woods is golf's biggest attraction. Langer, Raymond Floyd and Larry Nelson have won multiple times with different children. To participate you must have won a Major or The Players Championship and the son must not have played in the Pga Tour.
Other big names will challenge Woods: John Daly, Greg Norman, Nick Price, Lee Trevino and Gary Player. Tiger said: "I don't know how excited I am to play with Charlie in our first official tournament together. It was fantastic to see him improve as a junior, and it will be incredible to play together as a team in the PNC championship."
Meanwhile Dustin Johnson won the 84th edition of The Masters. After winning the US Open in 2016, the American wins another Grand Slam event four years later. The 36-year-old from Columbia (South Carolina), in the third round had advanced with a partial of 65 (-7) out of a total of 200 (-16) strokes, in the fourth day he closed with five strokes ahead of the Australian Cameron Smith and South Korean Sungjae Im.
He is the first player in his career to reach -20 at The Masters. Dustin Johnson was in total control all week except for the start of round four. The American in the first five holes of the last lap recorded a birdie and two bogeys (consecutive, at 4 and 5) that had reopened the super challenge at Augusta National.
