1st and 20 for Love, SYNR-G
Davis Love III secured the first win for SYNR-G, winning the Children’s Miracle Network Classic at Disney on Sunday with a final round 8-under 64. It was the second consecutive 64 for Love, the best final 36-hole score in the tournament’s 38-year history, en route to his 20th career victory. He becomes one of only four active players to reach the 20 win plateau and with it, earns a lifetime exemption on the PGA Tour.
Love, who finished at 25-under 263, saved the best for last, as his weekend 64s were both season-low rounds in the final PGA Tour event of 2008. The win was the first in more than two years for the 22-year PGA TOUR veteran who last won at the 2006 Chrysler Classic of Greensboro (now the Wyndham Championship).
“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.”
With a two-shot lead, Love’s tee shot on the 17th was buried in deep rough, leaving him no shot at the green. He laid up 100 yards short, hit wedge to 7 feet and saved par. From the right rough on the 18th, his ball flew the green into a back bunker. Needing par to win, he blasted out to 3 feet and made the putt.
“I was in trouble (on 18), but I was still confident I could get the ball up and in,” Love said. “I didn’t worry about winning or losing or screwing up.”
The win was Love’s seventh top-five finish in the tournament and his 15th straight round in the tournament in the 60s, breaking the record held by the #1 player in the world.Link to this entry
When does your golf season end?
Would you play in these conditions?
With the arrival of short days and cold temperatures here in the Northeast, it’s just about time to hang up the FJ’s for the year. While the cold weather gear is certainly available, personally, my benchmark is 50 degrees. Anything at or above and I’m calling around for a foursome. We’ve been fortunate the past few winters to meet that threshold so the spikes are never really that far from reach. In fact, we’ve developed a bit of a tradition where we play CrossWinds golf course each January around my birthday. We’re up to three years in a row now which is pretty unlikely when you live in the frozen tundra of Massachusetts.
So when does your season end? Is there a minimum temperature? First snowfall? Are you a fortunate year-rounder?Link to this entry

FootJoy Reigns at Volvo Masters
FootJoy reigned at the Volvo Masters Sunday as Robert Karlsson (Classics Dry Premiere, StaSof glove) became the first Swede to win the Order of Merit title and Soren Kjeldsen (Classics Dry Premiere, StaSof glove) earned his third career European Tour victory.
“It was a very special atmosphere and obviously nerve wracking for me but a very special day,” said Kjeldsen whose 708,000 euros ($899,000) winning cheque was nearly as much as he won in his first four years on tour.
Kjeldsen became the third wire-to-wire champion after an even par 71 gave him an 8-under 276 total for a two shot victory.
A new Order of Merit winner was crowned for the fifth straight year as Karlsson’s consistency through the season proved the difference. In 23 events, Karlsson finished outside of the top 20 only six times while winning twice.
“In the last three and a half years I have taken myself to a new level and this is fantastic. But this has been the hardest week I’ve ever experienced in golf. It’s one of those situations where you have it in your own hands, but not really, and your focus wanders quite a bit.”
“This is by far my greatest achievement in golf – I never thought I would be in this position so it’s just incredible,” said Karlsson.Link to this entry
