Davis Love III carded a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.
DL3's recent whirlwind yielded a closing 66 at The McGladrey Classic, which he hosts, and a T8 at the CIMB Classic immediately after he put his tournament to bed. After taking last week off, he got after it again today in México. He traded six birdies with one bogey. Overall Love III split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. He's shaping up to be a nice pickup in any format if he's even still available. Nov 13 - 12:17 PM

Davis Love III put a bow on the CIMB Classic in the form of a bogey-free, 4-under-par 32-36=68.

Love III sunk all four of today's birdies by the eighth hole. He played his last 29 holes in bogey-free 6-under. He shares the 72-hole clubhouse lead at 10-under 278, good for a share of eighth place on the leaderboard. It'll be his first top 25 in 30 PGA TOUR starts. His last was a T9 at the 2013 Greenbrier Classic.

Davis Love III answered his opening 68 at the CIMB Classic with a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in the second round to post 5-under 139 at the break, five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

DL3 started on the par-5 10th hole today and opened par-bogey-par-bogey to chop half of Thursday's work away. However, he regrouped to play out the string in bogey-free 3-under that included a birdie-2 on his penultimate hole to sneak under par. Anything he gives us is a bonus, but his rhetoric seems to suggest that he feels that he's more than just a token Life Member out there. So far in Malaysia, his execution is supporting that belief.

Davis Love III submitted a 4-under-par 33-35=68 for his opening round of the CIMB Classic to position himself three strokes off the overnight lead.

Oh, to be this spry at 50. He hosted last week's McGladrey Classic where he tied for 41st place with a closing 66. Sea Island is literally on the opposite side of the planet give its 12-hour time difference, but DL3 answered the bell. He converted an eagle-3 at the 10th hole and complemented it with four birdies. A pair of bogeys on his inward nine won't spoil the week.

Davis Love III concluded his third payday in five starts at The McGladrey Classic with a 4-under-par 32-34=66 to post 5-under 275.

Love III hosts this tournament. That would be enough of a distraction for anyone, much less a guy competing in it and at the age of 50 to boot. Yet, he showcased vintage form today at Seaside by going 5-for-16 in birdie chances to offset a three-putt bogey at the par-4 14th hole. DL3's longest birdie dropped in from 20-and-a-half feet at the par-4 10th. And forget about a week off now, too. The Life Member of the PGA TOUR is headed to Malaysia for his debut at this week's CIMB Classic.

Davis Love III will start the 2014-15 season at Silverado Resort and Spa for the Frys.com Open.

DL3 didn't crack the top 125 mark in the final FEC standings last season, missing out on the Playoffs, but remains exempt through lifetime member status. He's coming off a strange season where he posted a 15-for-22 record, but failed to land inside the top 25. It was the first time since 1985 that Love III failed to secure a top 10 in a season, let alone a top 25. He's still competing admirably at the age of 50, but his upside has clearly been limited. Gamers should take note and plan accordingly.

Davis Love III shared a piece of ninth place in the 2000 PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club and returns this week for another crack at it.

DL3 is 15-for-20 on the season, but no finishes better than his T26 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He's posted two or more top 25s every year for the last 28 years. An optimist might look at that and suggest he's due for a top 25 while the pessimist will say that injuries have finally caught up with Love III, and he doesn't have the upside at this point in his career. You can decide which side of the fence you sit on, but Love III should only be considered for the deepest of formats this week.

Davis Love III set the pace in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic with a bogey-free 5-under-par 30-35=65 to reach the 54-hole mark at 5-under 205.

DL3 had the birdies dropping from everywhere, beginning with a hole out from a greenside bunker on the first hole. His other four birdies were highlighted by a 35-footer at the par-4 fifth and a 13'6" effort at the par-4 ninth. His last top 10 on the PGA TOUR came at this event last year, and with another effort like this on Sunday he will do the same again this week.

Davis Love III tied for ninth at The Greenbrier Classic in 2013 and is back for another go of it this week.

That top 10 was the only one for DL3 in 2013, and his most recent on the PGA TOUR. While he's made his last four cuts this season, the best in that run was a T39 last week at Congressional. It's fair to hypothesize that father time is starting to catch up with Love III. He turned 50 in April.

The second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic was suspended by inclement weather at 1:03 p.m. CT. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 2:00 p.m.

Memphis and the surrounding area is in a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 7:00 p.m. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until Sunday morning as a line of thunderstorms works its way through the midsection of the country yet again today. When we last checked in on Davis Love III, he was one of the 60 to return at 7:02 a.m. today to complete his opening round, but he was able to get his second round in before the current delay. DL3 signed for an even-par, 36-34=70 that featured two birdies and two bogeys. His longest conversion measured 29 feet for birdie at the par-4 second, but he hit only 11 greens, so it was a lot like running in place. Still, at 5-under 135, he's seven strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse leader, but currently inside the top five on the leaderboard.

Davis Love III completed his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic this morning, signing for a 5-under-par 35-30=65.

The lid-lifter resumed at 7:02 a.m. CT. DL3 had to scratch his start at last week's Memorial due to a toe injury, so his return at TPC Southwind was accompanied by a question mark. Not anymore. He went 5-for-7 in scrambling and circled seven birdies, five of which on his inward nine. That back-half set included a zero-putt nine-yarder at 12 and conventional conversions of 21'5" and 39'9" at Nos. 15 and 17, respectively. He added a par save from 13'3" at the par-5 third. This is Love III's lowest aggregate since opening the 2012 McGladrey Classic with the same. He hadn't scored better than 68 (six times) at any point this season. He's just two strokes off Ben Crane's clubhouse lead.
Jun 6 - 8:41 AM

Davis Love III has been removed from the published field of this week's Memorial.

Love III alerted his followers on Twitter of this news on Sunday morning: "Hate to miss Memorial at Jacks House next week, but need to get toe issue fixed!" He tagged a photo of an ice bag sitting on his right foot, but didn't elaborate on the problem. He turned 50 on April 13, but hasn't teed it up on the Champions Tour yet. DL3 sits 163rd in the FedExCup standings with 11 paydays, none of which going for a top 25.

Davis Love III returns to Colonial Country Club for his 25th Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

DL3 is twice a runner-up here, but has never picked up the big check. Considering he's missed the cut in his last five trips to Colonial, he isn't a safe investment by any standard. He is 163rd in the FedExCup standings and has yet to score a top 25 in 15 starts this season.

Davis Love III will return to Hilton Head Island for this week's RBC Heritage after a two year recess.

Love III had teed it up in 26 consecutive RBC Heritage running's before having to miss the 2012 Heritage due to a cracked rib. The five-time winner at Harbour Town is the on top of the tournament's all-time earnings list, but he hasn't cracked a top 10 here since 2005. DL3 is still looking for his first top 25 of the season.

Davis Love III carded a 3-under-par 32-37=69 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to join Graeme McDowell at 4-under 212.

Love III was hot early, with birdies on four of his first five holes at Bay Hill. The wheels would wobble after the turn, giving back bogeys on 10, 12 and 14 before righting the ship with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 16th and a 25-foot birdie on the par-3 17th. Though he's made his last three cuts, DL3 hasn't been in contention at all in 2013-14. His best finish was a T36 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. He stands an excellent chance to raise that bar in Sunday's finale.
