NOTES: The final event of the 2014 Champions Tour season takes place this week. The PNC Father Son Challenge is one of the unique events in golf, as fathers and sons compete in a 2-day scramble to see which family can boast bragging rights for one year. Entrance into this tournament is also unique. In order for a father to qualify, he must have won a professional major title.
