The Oman Open once again was a family affair this year as Scottish pair Paul Lawrie and Stephen Gallacher were both caddied by their sons.

At the same event in 2018, Danish duo Thomas Bjørn and Søren Kjeldsen were caddied by their sons at Al Mouj Golf.

This time it was Lawrie and Gallacher who were joined by a member of their family and they played in the same group in the first two rounds, alongside fellow Scot David Law.

Lawrie's son Craig, a professional who has featured on the European Challenge Tour, was on the bag in Oman and will perform the duty again at this week's Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

Gallacher has been caddied by his son Jack since last year. Jack was first given the job for last season's BMW International Open after he had finished school, and on Sunday he celebrated his 18th birthday after once again being on the bag for his dad's two rounds in Oman.

Last year's event saw two father-and-son teams as Bjørn was joined by Oliver while Kjeldsen was caddied by Emil.

Lee Westwood has also teamed up with his son in the past, to some success.

Sam Westwood caddied for his father at last year's Andalucia Valderrama Masters and the former World Number One finished in a tie for fifth.
