Record-breaking duo smash tournament scoring record and 18-hole record
Davis Love III and son, Dru Love, shot a record-breaking final round 56 (-16) on Sunday, to seal a three-shot victory over Team Goosen, Team Cink and Team Daly and claim their second tournament victory at the 2018 PNC Father/Son Challenge with a championship record 118 (-26) total.
On a low scoring morning, which saw no less than three teams hit to the top of the leaderboard on the front nine, Team Love, who were earmarked as pre-tournament favourites, quickly stamped their authority on the tournament, firing 27 strokes on the front nine (-9).
The original big-hitting American, John Daly, teamed up with son, Little John Daly, to tie the tournament course record with a flawless round of 59 (-13), taking the halfway lead at the 2018 PNC Father/Son Challenge.
Playing in their third PNC Father/Son Challenge, Team Daly, who wore their customary matching attire, made the turn in 31 strokes before adding gains at Nos. 10 and 11. A solitary back-nine par on the 12thhalted their progress temporarily before six successive gains from the 13th saw them break the magic 60 mark, tying the championship course record held by Team Cabrera (2017) and Team Singh (2015).
