Stadler's win Father-Son Challenge

Kevin Stadler made an 8-foot birdie putt to force a playoff Sunday, then father Craig Stadler holed a 30-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole to win the Father-Son Challenge.

Steve and Hale Irwin birdied the first eight holes on the back nine, but their only par allowed for a playoff at the Ocean Club Golf Course.

Both teams shot 12-under 60 in a scramble format for the second straight day and finished at 24-under 120. The Stadlers earned $200,000, while the Irwins won $80,000.

"We were tied after nine, then made eight birdies on the back nine and still almost lost it outright. That just ain't right," said Stadler, the 1982 Masters champion.

Irwin, a three-time U.S. Open champion, and his son missed a 15-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole.

Raymond Floyd, a five-time winner in seven years at The Office Depot Father-Son Challenge, came up two strokes short while paired with Raymond Floyd Jr. They shot 60 and finished at 122, along with Johnny and John Miller Jr.

The 19-team field was for players who had won a major championship.
