More than a few middle-age guys have dreamt of improving their games enough to quit their day job and give the
Champions Tour a go. But for 1998 PGA champion Davis Love III, his wish is, apparently, to bypass the senior circuit — for now. In a conversation with Golf Channel's Rex Hoggard, Love gave several reasons:
- His own expectations: "I feel like I can still play (on the PGA Tour) and I don't feel like I am struggling to make cuts."
- Injuries hampered Love over the least two seasons: "It normally takes about a full year to recover and I owe myself a couple of years on Tour."
Love underwent significant neck surgery this past February, which has curtailed his neck and arm strength. Before having to head for the sidelines in 2012, he ranked 39th in driving distance and 52nd in reaching par-5s in two.
Not only does Love feel he can still be competitive on the PGA Tour, but he will have a place to prove it; five years ago, he won his 20th Tour event, giving him a lifetime exemption.
