On Thursday, Kenny McDowell and Godfrey Clarke took time out from a friendly round at Royal Portrush to talk to UTV about their pride in their golfing sons.
"We can't wait and the buzz in Portrush you wouldn't believe," G-Mac's dad said.
"I know Graeme is looking forward to playing on his home course, if you like, and it'll be great to see how the boys do - I hope they do well."
And according to Darren's dad, he's looking forward to the Irish Open just as much.
"Darren practises round here more than Graeme would do because he's living here," Godfrey said.
"We're looking forward to it. We hope it'll be a great event and the crowds turn up - the tickets, I hear, are just about sold out."
So while their sons will be battling against each other on 28 June, is there any rivalry on the course between the McDowell and Clarke dads?
"We would play against each other quite often - he's too good for me, mind you ..." Kenny said.
Godfrey added, to laughter: "We have a bit of fun. But we're not out to make any money, put it that way."
It's hoped hosting the Irish open will bring Royal Portrush one step closer to hosting the Open itself - but for now the dads will be pleased enough if one of their sons can bring home another trophy.
