PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS
Justin Thomas and his father Mike birdied the opening seven holes before dad delivered a 5-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole that gave them a one-shot victory over Vijay Singh and son Qass at the PNC Championship. Tiger Woods and his son, 11-year-old Charlie, dressed in his traditional Sunday red with black trousers, posted another 62 to finish seventh. Charlie’s mother and Woods’ former wife, Elin Nordegren, walked the final round alongside them, her first time at a golf tournament since the 2009 Presidents Cup at Harding Park.
