The 2021 PNC Championship had a captivating start, with team Cink leading with a score of -13. However, there are plenty of players who are just three to four strokes behind them. Hence, we are all set for a cliffhanger of a Sunday finish. The star attraction of the event, team Woods, started off on a positive note as they carded 62.

The PNC Championship is a family event where father-son/father-daughter team up and compete. However, only the major championship winners or The Players Championship winners are eligible to compete.

PNC Championship is an unofficial money event sanctioned by the PGA Tour. Hence, they play this event in December, which is off-season on the PGA Tour.

This year, the 2021 PNC Championship purse is set for $1.085 million. However, the winner’s payout isn’t the standard 18 percent, according to the PGA Tour’s prize money distribution chart.

So the winner’s share from the $1.085 million is $200,000. The winning team will receive a total of $200,000 after the two-round scramble event. Since, there is no cut in this event, even the last-placed team will receive around $40,000, which isn’t too bad.
