Davis Love III and Dru Love celebrate another birdie at the PNC Father-Son Challenge on Sunday.

Davis Love III and son Dru Love caught fire on the front nine and went on to win the PNC Father-Son Challenge on Sunday at Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Fla.

The Loves went out in 27 (which included a par) as they made seven birdies and an eagle to shoot nine under on the front before pulling away from the Goosens, Dalys, Cinks and more on the back side.

Team Love signed for a 16-under 56 to finish 26 under for the 36-hole scramble. The 56 was a tournament course record, which was previously set at 59 (and recently matched by the Dalys on Saturday).

Retief and Leo Goosen, Stewart and Connor Cink, and John and Little John Daily all tied for second at 23 under, three shots back.

Jack and JT Nicklaus shot 64 to finish 19 under and in sixth place.

The Dalys shot 59 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead ahead of David Tom and his son, Carter Toms (60). Nicklaus and GT and the Cinks were two back with 61s, and the Loves were three back after shooting 62 in the first round.

The Loves tied for 2nd in 2015 but didn’t play the previous two years.
