Tony Jacklin's 21-year-old son Sean is to play on the European Challenge Tour at Stoke-by-Nayland in Essex on July 26-29 - the same week that his father is competing in the Senior Open at Turnberry.
Former Open champion Jacklin, now 67, has decided to return to the competitive game after an absence of five years, saying:
"I'm sure as it gets closer I will be a bit more apprehensive, but I've been playing a bit more recently and Turnberry is one of my favourite spots".
Sean, the youngest of his six children, recently graduated from the University of North Carolina, where he studied business administration.
"I always wanted to be a pro golfer," he said. "My dad never really had to push me because I never wanted to do anything else.
"I caddied for him when he played The Open in 2007 and when he finished he said 'I'm done', but since I've become a good player and I turned pro he's really getting back into it."
