What do Bob Toski and Ken Duke have in common?
This might be the coolest photo I saw on Twitter all week.
It was posted by Ken Duke, who's there on the right, along with legendary PGA Professonal Bob Toski there on the left. Toski is Duke's instructor, but that's just the beginning of this story.
Duke, you might remember, won the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn., in late June to become, at age 44, the oldest first-trime winner ever on the PGA Tour. But, you probably didn't know, Toski won what was then known as the Insurance City Open at Wethersfield Country Club in Wethersfield, Conn., back in 1953.
Which means that teacher and student won the same PGA Tour title exactly 60 years apart. I don't have any proof, but I'd sure bet that's some kind of record.
Toski, by the way, is still going strong at age 86 – in fact, he analyzed Duke's victory for PGA.com's "A Lesson Learned" column last month. He also was inducted into the PGA Golf Professional Hall of Fame in March, and you can read more about him here.
