CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Bill Haas and his father Jay have both won PGA TOUR events, one of eight father-son pairs to have done so.
Bill has two victories while Jay won nine times. In fact, Bill’s first victory came at last year’s Bob Hope Classic – a tournament his father won in 1988.
The two have a chance to make history again on Sunday as Bill starts the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship four strokes off the lead and Jay trails Mark Calcavecchia by one at the Regions Tradition.
The only time a father and son have won on the PGA TOUR and Champions Tour on the same day was in 1999. That’s when Bob Duval won the Emerald Coast Classic and his son David captured THE PLAYERS Championship.
