Discussion: 2017 PNC Father/Son Challenge

aturskyatursky Members Posts: 699 ✭✭
GolfWRX is live this week from the 2017 PNC Father/Son Challenge at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Florida.



The 20-team field includes some of the game's legendary major champions, and their sons. Notable teams include John Daly/Little John Daly, Nick Faldo/Matthew Faldo, Tom Kite/David Kite, Bernhard Langer/Jason Langer, Greg Norman/Greg Norman Jr., Jack Nicklaus/Gary Nicklaus Jr., and Lee Trevino/Daniel Trevino. The teams will compete in a scramble format over 36 holes to decide the winners of the Willie Park Trophy.



Last year, David Duval and his step-son Nick Karavites took home the trophy, and they are back in the field this year to defend.



Check out our photos below from this year's event!

    Is VGG making a fairway wood now or does John just have a customer headcover for promo?



    And Duval's son wearing the OG Signature Duval glasses is awesome.

    Not sure about Nick Price to PXG. Looks to me that Nick Price is hitting PXG irons and wedges.

    Sir Nick playing JPX 900 Forged ?? If he was a Golfwrx member he would be bagging some 900 Tours. Or MP-4 or 5's like his son.



    Might have to get a set of these magical 900 forged, good enough for ole Nick good enough for me.



    Any one want to buy some Blades?? lol

    I love it that Greg Norman is still using a Kia Ma putter. Circa 2010.

    Noticed that as well. Good looking driver in all black. Milled face is exciting. Reviews have been very positive; sound and feel are reported as exceptional. And, it's launching high with low spin -- especially on above center strikes. It's the only thing on my list to try this year.

    Seeing several sets of '18 X-Forged in bags (and a set of '14 Apex - Watkin's????). Also see the '18 Rogue in O'Meara's bag. Interesting to see Marko playing a whole bag of Callys after being a Titleist guy for years. How 'bout Lehman's mixed set of old TM and new '18 X-Forged. Oh yeah, anyone catch the ferrule on one of Lehman's irons sliding up. Old school, baby.......details, details. He doesn't care. Good stuff.

    Think the Shark was using an OG Studio Stainless last week. I'm sure his putter collection would cause us all to mess ourselves at first look.
    Never forget that the luxury of being
    wrong is not enough to make you right.

    He teed of with an Epic so it's either just a cover or maybe he was trying it on the range?

    Ping should sign Langer to a full contract. They’d be a great fit.

    My highlight was the 503H with what looked like an Aldila NV shaft in what I think was the bag of Tom Kite. Sure that that combo had a little of a cult following back in the day.

    Plays golf a few times a year, maybe 5-10 rounds. Practiced at the range a few days ago for the first time since ‘05. Some sort of injury has kept Jack from playing much tennis lately.

    Actually if you check out his GHIN, Jack at least plays quite a bit. I a willing to bet he probably plays more than he lets on but downplays it.



    Can anyone say what Jack had in the bag this week, club set up and so on.



    Thanks

    Love watching DD!




    Watched him in person yesterday, he had the F8+ driver with Tensei Pro White, F8 (not sure if the + verison) 3 wood with Tensei Pro Blue, F6 Baffler with Aldila Tour Blue, Cobra King Pro 3-PW, all CBs with Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100, Cobra King 53 and 58 wedges with Nippon N.S. Pro Modus3, and Scotty Cameron 009 Newport Beach (looked like a new version of his trusty old one). He was playing a Titleist ProV1, couldn't get close enough to see which version, but looked to me like the X.

    It's still great seeing Jack and Lee play and talk even if their games aren't what they once were. Having grown up watching these guys it's great seeing them out there again. And it's funny how some younger tour pros are now participating as they all seem to have fun with the event. Must be fun to watch in person too.
