Father/Son Challenge

The Father/Son Challenge is an annual two person golf tournament for PGA Tour and Champions Tour golfers and (usually) their sons. It was played at Champions Gate Golf Resort in Florida from 1995 to 2008. After a three year hiatus, the event will return to the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Florida in 2012.[1]

The event's name became somewhat inaccurate as Fuzzy Zoeller teamed up with his daughter Gretchen in 2005 and Arnold Palmer partnered one of his grandsons. The junior team members ranged from middle school age up, and included a few with tour golf careers of their own.

The tournament is played over 36 holes for the Willie Park Trophy, in memory of the father and son British Open champions Willie Park Snr and Willie Park Jnr. The 2012 the prize fund is $1,000,000. The tournament is jointly owned by IMG and NBC Sports. The field of eighteen teams plays a scramble format, and the fathers needed to have won a major championship or The Players Championship to be eligible.
