Golf: Davis Love wins first tournament in two years

Associated Press
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. ó Davis Love III hit into the rough and a bunker on the last two holes. Then he hit the jackpot.
Love scrambled for pars on both holes and closed with an 8-under 64 to win his first tournament in more than two years, holding off a late challenge from Tommy Gainey for a one-shot victory Sunday in the Children’s Miracle Network Classic at Disney World.
It was the 20th career PGA Tour victory for Love, giving him a lifetime exemption. Among active players, only Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh and Phil Mickelson have won at least 20 times.
“I always questioned, ‘Am I doing the right thing? Why am I still doing this,’ ” the 44-year-old Love said. “I didn’t doubt my desire, or that I could still compete, it was just the little things I had to do.”
Love stepped in a hole playing a recreational round last year and tore two ankle ligaments. During his time off, he worked harder on conditioning and spent time with sports psychologist Bob Rotella, who convinced him to adopt a take-no-prisoner’s approach.
