The Office Depot Father-Son Challenge celebrates its 10th anniversary this weekend at ChampionsGate in Orlando, Fla as another event in the crowded Silly Season looking for attention. Yet, this tournament stands apart through the work of Alistair Johnston of IMG, one of the largest sports marketing firms. He set out to create a tournament that had serious competition with serious prize money. As it turns out, getting players to participate would be a no-brainer.
"This event will never be pressed to get a field," said David Charles, son of 1963 Open Champion Bob Charles. "It's such a unique event they could have 50 teams out there."
