Florida - Jack Nicklaus always said family was more important than golf. December is one time of the year he gets to do both.

Nicklaus and his son, Gary, headline the 20-team field for the PNC Father-Son Challenge that will be played December 12-13 at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club.

It will be the 14th time that Jack Nicklaus plays in the event, and the seventh time for Gary Nicklaus. They won in 1999.

The defending champions are Bernhard Langer and his 15-year-old son Jason, who last year became the youngest son to win the tournament.

That broke the record held by Jason's brother, Stefan Langer, who was 15 when he won with his father in 2005.

Also returning is Davis Love III, who won the Wyndham Championship this year at age 51, and son Dru Love, who plays at Alabama. They were runner-up a year ago.
