Davis Love III has a lot to play for in the final round Sunday at the Greenbrier Classic.
The 53-year-old Love,who is headed for induction in the World Golf Hall of Fame in September, will try to make PGA Tour history Sunday.
If Love were to win Sunday, he will become the oldest player to win in PGA Tour history. He is currently the third oldest, with his last win at the 2015 Wyndham Championship.
Love is tied for fifth and four shots behind leader Sebastian Munoz heading into Sunday’s final round at the Old White TPC Course.
When asked if he wanted to break Sam Sneads record being the oldest to win,
“I’m happy to be in third or whatever I am and oldest. I don’t think much about age”
“You know, I want to get out and compete. There’s a reason I’ve been having surgery and coming back and having rehab and trying to play. I think I can play out here.”
Despite his 21 Tour wins and one PGA Championship, Love is still motivated,
“I want to win,” Love said. “I want to move up in FedEx points, I want to get in The Open Championship.”
On his game plan for the final round Sunday Love said, “There are some low scores been shot on Sunday. I know there are a lot of guys in it, so just trying to grind it out and keep getting birdie putts.”
“Under the pressure I know how to handle things. I’ve seen some guys this week go up and down and make some rookie mistakes, including my son”, said Love.
“So hopefully I can avoid — I’m going to make mistakes, too. Hopefully the experience will pay off.”
A four stroke lead is not much on the PGA Tour on Sunday, especially if Davis Love III is chasing you!
