LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Davis Love III has won the
Children's Miracle Network Classic at Disney, closing with an
8-under 64 for a one-shot victory over Tommy Gainey in the final
PGA Tour event of the year.
Love scrambled for pars on the final two holes Sunday, including
a tough bunker shot to 3 feet on the 18th, to hold off a late
charge from Gainey, who shot 30 on the back nine of the Magnolia
Course and closed with a 64.
It was the 20th career victory for Love, giving him a lifetime
exemption on the PGA Tour. Among active players, only Tiger Woods,
Vijay Singh and Phil Mickelson have won more than 20 tour events.
Love, who finished at 25-under 263, won for the first time in
more than two years and earned $828,000.
