Floyd's win Father-Son Challenge for 5th time

Raymond Floyd continued to dominate the Father-Son Challenge by winning Sunday for the fifth time in seven years.

Floyd and his son Robert came from four shots behind first-round leaders Hale and Steve Irwin under the scramble format to win by a stroke. The Floyds had an 11-under-par 61 for a two-round total of 124. The Irwins carded a 66 after an opening-round 59.

The elder Floyd, who won the first three times with Ray Jr. as his playing partner and the last two with Robert, wasn't filled with confidence as the final round began at the 6,928-yard Ocean Club.

``You just can't expect to make up four strokes against these teams in a scramble format,'' he said. ``We thought we would have to get to 22-under and we needed the wind to blow.''

They settled for 20-under for the tournament, but got the breeze they needed to keep the leaders from moving away. The Floyds moved into the lead for the first time at 17-under with a birdie on the 13th hole.

``That's when we thought we had a chance,'' Ray said. ``But we knew we could have to continue to make birdies because the Irwins and Weiskopfs were playing behind us.''

Tom and Eric Weiskopf combined for a 65 to finish two shots back in third place. Another shot back pace were Johnny and Scott Miller, who carded a 63 in the final round.

Lee and Tony Trevino finished last among the 14 teams, closing with a 68 that left them 12 shots off the winning score.

To qualify for the 36-hole tournament sponsored by Office Depot, the father must have won one of golf's major championships.
