Father's and Son's Day

June 19, 2005

In the 110-year history of the U.S. Open, numerous father-son combinations have played in the event, which has culminated on Father's Day since 1965. Only six families, though, have had a father and his son play in the same Open. Eight other families have had both a father and son play in the Open, though not necessarily the same one, where one or the other brought home the trophy. Here's how they stack up.
