It's time for one of the most unique events on the golf calendar.

The full field for the 2022 PNC Championship was set Friday, and it's loaded with big names from the past and current men's and women's stars.

The inaugural PNC Championship began in 1995, and it featured 10 men's major winners with their sons. Since then, the field has grown to include 20 professional golfers playing with a family member in a 36-hole scramble at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Florida.

To qualify for the PNC Championship, players must have won a major championship or The Players. Their partner must not hold a PGA or LPGA card.

Here's a look at the field for the 2022 PNC Championship.
