MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Plenty of events will take place ahead of the start of the Barbasol Championship Thursday, including Alabama Power's Junior Clinic.

Former Major champion Davis Love III and his son Dru will see more than 150 children from the Opelika/Auburn area Tuesday.

The clinic, which will take place at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Grand National, aims to teach children about the game of golf and the core values it promotes. 

"Alabama Power is proud to support the Junior Clinic, which will showcase the important lessons that golf can provide for children," Vice President of Alabama Power's Southern Division Leslie Sanders said. "We're excited to have David Love III and David Love IV with us to help host the event."

This year's Barbasol Championship will be Dru's fourth PGA TOUR start, and his third as a professional. Dru's first PGA TOUR start came as an amateur at the 2015 RSM Classic. This season, Love has competed in the U.S. Open, where he missed the cut, and the Greenbrier Classic. 

Dru's father is a well-known name in the golf world. Davis Love III is the 1997 PGA Championship winner and is going into the World Golf Hall of Fame in September.

Davis was also the 1992 and 2003 Players Championship winner and captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup teams in 2012 and 2016. After first turning pro out of the University of North Carolina in 1985 and joining the PGA TOUR in 1986, Davis is seeking his 22nd PGA TOUR victory in this year's Barbasol Championship.

The Junior Clinic is open to the public and in any case of inclement weather, the clinic will be moved to the Auburn Marriott Opelika Hotel & Conference Center at Grand National.
