For the second year in a row, Korbel California Champagne sponsored the PNC Championship, awarding $5,000 to the winner of the Korbel Closest to the Pin Challenge on Friday, Dec. 15.
Winner Bernhard Langer will donate the prize money to the Langer Foundation, a charitable organization he founded. Other Major Champions participating included Tiger Woods, John Daly, Justin Thomas, Matt Kuchar, Lee Trevino, Annika Sorenstam, Nelly Korda, and more.
Held on Hole 12 with a scenic 188-yard par three, Korbel’s Closest to the Pin Challenge invited the Major Champions to compete for the closest to the pin. Langer’s winning ball landed within 7’ 8” of the hole followed by Vijay Singh and Nelly Korda.
The father-son duo of Bernhard and his son Jason also won the overall championship played at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club , Orlando, Fla., this weekend, making this the fifth win for Langer at the annual family event. Team Langer takes home the top prize of $200,000. Nothing like the other PGA TOUR events on the schedule, the PNC Championship provides the chance to see 20 Major Champions team up with a member of their family and play the game they truly love.
