John Daly and his son, Little John, find themselves atop the leaderboard after Round 1 of the PNC Father/Son Challenge.
The Dalys, ages 52 and 15, teamed up Saturday to shoot a 13-under 59 in a scramble format at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Fla. They lead David Toms and Carter Toms, who plays college golf at LSU, by a shot.
After shooting 5 under on the front nine, the Dalys posted an 8-under 28 on the back nine. They birdied each of their final six holes.
The Daly’s 59 is the 10th sub-60 round in the 21-year history of the Father/Son. The record is 57, held by Raymond Floyd and Raymond Floyd Jr. (1995) and Bob and David Charles (1998).
This is the Dalys third appearance in the Father/Son. They tied for ninth in each of the past two editions.
Jack Nicklaus and his 16-year-old grandson, G.T., are tied for third at 11 under with fellow past champions Stewart and Connor Cink.
