Last n characters of column as new column

Hello,
I'm looking for a short command that copies the first column to a new file, along with the last two character as a second column:

Input file (tab delimited):
Code:
9780027123227-PK        9780027123227   2        57.8505        11      100     a       n       47.8505 67.8505
9780060094584-PK        9780060094584   2        23.3325        11      100     a       n       13.3325 33.3325
9780061130243-PK        9780061130243   2        42.1755        11      100     a       n       32.1755 52.1755

Desired output (tab delimited):
Code:
9780027123227-PK     PK
9780060094584-PK     PK
9780061130243-PK     PK

Thanks!
