Team Korda (Nelly Korda and Petr Korda)

Nelly Korda was the only women’s golfer in the field. She became only the second female professional golfer to compete in the PNC Championship. Nelly teamed up with her dad Petr Korda, who is a former tennis player. They enjoyed their time out there, and most importantly, Nelly had a fangirl moment when she met Tiger Woods. 

Team Stenson (Henrik Stenson and Karl Stenson)

This was probably the sweetest and the most entertaining team in this event. Henrik had his 11-year-old son Karl, who was also the youngest player in the field. They both enjoyed themselves, especially in the press conferences where Karl stole the show with some hilarious answers.
