ORLANDO, Fla. -- Davis Love III and son Dru birdied five of the last six holes for a 12-under 60 in the Father-Son Challenge scramble event, giving them a one-stroke lead Saturday after the first round.

Dru Love is an Alabama freshman after winning five Georgia state titles in high school.

Mark O'Meara and son Shaun, and Fred Funk and son Taylor were a stroke back, and Larry Nelson, who won the last two Father-Son events in 2007-08 before it went on a three-year hiatus, was two shots back with son Josh.

Bernhard Langer and Christina Langer, one of two father-daughter pairings, also were 10 under along with 72-year-old Jack Nicklaus and son Gary, Hale Irwin and Steve Irwin, and Vijay Singh and son Qass.
