ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) - The Father-Son Challenge is returning to golf this year.

Arnold Palmer will serve as the ambassador and PNC Bank will be the title sponsor of the tournament that features major champions teaming up with their sons in a 36-hole tournament.

The tournament has not been played since 2008, when it lost sponsorship during the economic downturn. The Father-Son Challenge will be played Dec. 15-16 at The Ritz-Carlton Club at Grand Lakes Resort in Orlando. NBC Sports will televise the tournament.

Alastair Johnson, vice chairman at IMG who created the tournament in 1995, said no other event has a waiting list of major champions wanting to get in. The field is limited to 18 players.

Past champions include Jack Nicklaus. Larry Nelson and Raymond Floyd won multiple times with different sons.
