Davis Love III, son Dru win Father-Son Challenge
"I can't wait to get home and see it on replay," the elder Nelson said. "It went in the left-center of the hole; it wasn't like it was just on the edge. I closed my eyes, then I looked up and the ball's over there."
Said Josh Nelson: "We thought an angel blew it in on 17; we think a little devil kept it out on 18."
The Nelsons, who shot a 60 in the final round, were seeking to bring the family a third consecutive Father-Son title. Larry and Josh teamed for the 2007 title, with elder son Drew stepping in to win in 2008 before the event went on a three-year hiatus.
Vijay Singh and son Qass finished two shots back after a 61, followed by Mark and Shaun O'Meara (63) and David Duval with stepson Nick Karavites (61).
Jack Nicklaus and son Gary, two shots off the pace to start the day, finished four back after a 63. The duo briefly moved in front after a pair of early eagles, but couldn't overcome a nine-hole stretch in which they made just one birdie.
"We had a good look on every hole," Jack Nicklaus said. "We never came close all week to making a bogey. But we didn't make enough birdies."
Gary Nicklaus, a PGA Tour member from 2000-02, is a reinstated amateur who qualified for last summer's U.S. Amateur at Cherry Hills.
