ORLANDO - Davis Love III's winning ways are ageless.

The 54-year-old and his son, Dru, fired a 16-under 56 in a scramble format Sunday at the PNC Father/Son Challenge to storm from three shots back to a three-shot victory at 26 under.

Team Love began the day hot, starting the round birdie-birdie-eagle. After a rare par at No. 4, the pair then ripped off five straight birdies to go out in 9-under 27. The pace didn't slow down much from there, either, as the Loves went 5 under from Nos. 11-15. They then finished birdie-birdie to get in at that 26-under number at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club.

It seemed that would be enough to win, and nobody from behind challenged down the stretch. The two-day 118 total was a new tournament record by a shot. Retief Goosen and son, Leo, fired a Sunday 58 to jump five spots to T-2 at 23-under 121. John Daly and his son, Little John, were the first-round leaders but fell to that same 23-under number for a T-2.

Davis Love III and Dru Love have been exaggerating that peculiar Love strut lately, their backs more erect than usual, skinny chests puffed out farther Davis ' father , Davis Love Jr., was a fine player and extraordinary teacher who played for the legendary Harvey Penick at the University of Texas.

The day unfolded in the Loves favor thanks to an aggressive mindset.

"Today I told (Dru), 'Let's try to hole every wedge shot, let's try to eagle every hole like we're behind,' " Davis Love III said.

This is the pair's second win at this event, as the duo won the title in 2012 as well.

The elder Love, a 21-time PGA Tour winner, earns another victory in his 50s. This one is not his most impressive to date actually. Three years ago, Love became the third-oldest winner in PGA Tour history when he captured the Wyndham Championship at age 51.

Dru sarcastically interjected, "Come on."

"We had a lot of fun today," Dru explained, "but winning a PGA Tour event, getting your 21st win at 51 years old and playing in the Masters, that's why you play golf."
