PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WHEC) — Round two of the 2019 Senior PGA Championship kicked off Thursday, and one local golfer is turning this tournament into a family affair. 

Dudley Hart was born in Rochester and is participating in the tournament at Oak Hill Country Club. His caddy is his son Ryan, who will soon go on play golf at Florida, just like his father did. The chance to have some father and son time in a major tournament is special.

"When I'm out there, I'm not always thinking about...we're having fun, I mean don't get me wrong," Hart said. "At times, we're laughing about how bad I am right now. I'm trying to give him the clubs and I'll carry the bag, but it's great. I think we'll look back on it more as I get older, but it's a good learning experience for him, too...being around these guys and watching how they practice and how they play. It's great to be able to share that with him."

Saturday's tee times for round three have been pushed up due to the incoming inclement weather. The golfers will start in groups of three from tees 1 to 10 between 7 a.m. and 9:12 a.m.
