“We absolutely loved our experience last year and are delighted to have been invited again this year. It was such a fun week for the whole family,” said Korda via a release. “It truly was special for my dad and me to compete inside the ropes together. We are definitely looking to improve on our 12th place finish last year and I can’t wait to share this amazing experience with him again.”

Previously confirmed teams in the field include 2021 winners John Daly and John Daly II, Bernhard and Jason Langer, Jordan and Shawn Spieth, Annika Sorenstam and her son Will, Justin and Luke Leonard, as well as Nick and Greg Price.
