The PNC is indeed a special tournament on the golf calendar. It is unlike any other event because we normally don’t see pro golfers team up with their family members and compete. While a majority of them join hands with their kids, guys like JT, and Bubba Watson are different. 

The one thing Justin Thomas loves the most about PNC Championship 

Justin Thomas does not compete at the PNC with this kid, but it is quite the opposite actually. Thomas and his father Mike play the event, and he’s the kid on that occasion. So that allows JT to go gorge on food placed in the “kids” section during the tournament! 

Thomas also posted a tweet about the same recently. His lunch plans at PNC are sorted! 

The excitement levels are absolutely high for the PNC Championship. Justin Thomas and his dad are putting their title on the line, while Tiger Woods is gearing up for his much-anticipated return – several months after suffering a solo car crash.
