Lee Trevino aims to extend 1 streak, end another

Trevino, who will team with son Daniel this weekend at the PNC Championship, has played in all 22 previous editions of the event formerly known as the Father/Son Challenge but has yet to win

23: Number of consecutive appearances that Lee Trevino will have made in the PNC Championship when play begins Saturday in the PGA Tour team exhibition in Orlando, Fla. Trevino, 81, has played in every edition of the event, formerly known as the Father/Son Challenge, since its 1995 debut. (The tournament was not held in 2009-11.) Trevino has yet to win the tournament, a 36-hole scramble pitting 20 two-person teams consisting of former major champions or Players Championship winners and a family member. Trevino, a World Golf Hall of Fame inductee whose 29 PGA Tour victories include six major championships, will compete with his son Daniel. Play begins Saturday at Ritz-Carlton’s Grande Lakes Golf Club. Justin Thomas and his father, Mike, a PGA of America club professional, are the favorites, but much of the attention will be focused on Tiger Woods and his 11-year-old son, Charlie (tee times).
