IT WAS THE WIN of a lifetime. Sort of.
By notching his 20th career win today at the Children’s Miracle Network Classic, Davis Love earned a lifetime exemption on the PGA Tour. Lifetime. That’s got to be sweet for an established player who has been struggling recently just to hang on to his tour card.
After 54 holes, however, Davis was focused on just one thing.
“I just want to play to win,” he said. “I'm not playing for any exemption.”
Love’s first title in more than two years was a one-shot victory over Tommy Gainey. He shot 64-64 on the weekend and will pocket $828,000.
Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh and Phil Mickelson are the only active players to have won more than 20 PGA Tour events.
