Davis Love III, the former PGA champion and two-time Ryder Cup captain, will be caddying for his son during the U.S. Open, where the younger Love recently qualified to play.

Davis Love IV, who goes by "Dru," recently finished his collegiate golf career at the University of Alabama and qualified for his first U.S. Open as an alternate from the Georgia sectional qualifier.

Love III, 53, has 21 career PGA victories, 30 second-place finishes, and 16 third-place finishes, according to his PGA Tour biography. His career professional winnings total $44.3 million.

He won the 1997 PGA Championship and two victories at The Players Championship in 1992 and 2003.

"I'm excited for him,'' Love III said Sunday, according to The Associated Press. ''I've played with a bunch of 19- and 20-year-olds. But it makes me feel old that he's playing.''

In September, Love III will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame with Meg Mallon, Lorena Ochoa, and Ian Woosnam.

Love IV will be the third generation of the family to play in the U.S. Open: Davis Love Jr., who was a well-known teaching pro, played in the U.S. Open six times.

The U.S. Open will be played at Erin Hills in Wisconsin starting Thursday and over the Father's Day weekend, coincidentally.

News of the Love pairing spread on social media, some pointing out the Father's Day angle to the story.
