Love III treads water in the second round | 06/07/2013 1:10 PM
NewsOvernight co-leader Davis Love III followed his opening 66 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic with an even-par 36-34=70 to post 4-under 136 at the midpoint, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
ImpactHis lead won't hold as Harris English is tearing up TPC Southwind today, but Love III will remain in the mix entering the weekend. He offset four birdies, the longest of which just 10'10" at the 13th hole, with two bogeys and a double. The veteran is just 10 months from turning 50 years of age.

NewsDavis Love III circled seven birdies in his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic en route to a 4-under-par 33-33=66, good for a piece of the clubhouse lead.
ImpactDL3 went 7-for-13 in birdie opportunities today to offset three bogeys. While he rolled in a birdie from 10'1" at the fourth hole, the highlight was a 32'8" conversion at 10. He was the third to sign for a 66. It's his lowest aggregate since last year's McGladrey Classic. The SJC is just his seventh start of the season since he sat out three months after having neck surgery in February.

NewsDavis Love III resumed his playing career with a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS.
ImpactIn what was his first live action since having neck surgery on Feb. 8, DL3 split seven (of 14) fairways and hit just 10 greens in regulation but managed to offset three bogeys with five birdies. His longest of the set fell in form 18 feet at 18, but he also converted a par attempt from 17'2" at the par-5 16th.
Love III circles THE PLAYERS for his return | 05/03/2013 5:44 PM
NewsDavis Love III is listed in the published field of next week's PLAYERS.
ImpactDL3 had hoped to return to competition at this week's stop in Charlotte, but opted to wait until the PGA TOUR's flagship event at TPC Sawgrass. He's been outside ropes since withdrawing from the WM Phoenix Open on Feb. 1 with an injury to his neck. He underwent surgery seven days later. Although he's a two-time winner of THE PLAYERS (1992, 2003) and he's fared well at the event of late (T4, 2010; T12, 2011), give him a little time to shed the rust before considering him as a viable investment. Remember, he just turned 49 years old.

Love III heads to Phoenix after a rough start | 01/29/2013 10:52 PM
NewsDavis Love III is in the field of the Waste Management Phoenix Open with two missed cuts on his 2013 resume.
ImpactWhile he failed to see the weekend in either event, DL3 improved from 10-over at the Sony Open to 8-under at the Humana Challenge. Considering his lofty standards, making 12 cuts in 16 events with just one top 10 in this event is modest at best. That's a pretty good indicator of what to expect this week. Don't be surprised if he sees the weekend, but don't expect to see him in contention.
