Love Earns Lifetime Exemption with Win at Disney
Posted: November 10, 2008
Titleist Brand Ambassador Davis Love III won the Children's Miracle Network Classic presented by Wal-Mart, closing with a second consecutive 8-under 64 for a one-shot victory in the final PGA TOUR event of the year. Love scrambled for pars on the final two holes, including a tough bunker shot to 3 feet on the 18th, to hold off a late charge from the runner-up. Love, who finished at 25-under 263, saved the best for last, as his weekend 64s were both season-low rounds. The win was the first in more than two years for the 22-year PGA TOUR veteran who last won at the 2006 Chrysler Classic of Greensboro (now the Wyndham Championship). It was also his 20th career victory, earning him a lifetime exemption on the PGA TOUR. Only three other active players have won more than 20 TOUR events.
