Davis Love III commits to Open

U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III has committed to play in the October 10-14 Open at CordeValle.

Love has twenty victories on the TOUR, including the 1997 PGA Championship and two Players Championships. He is playing well, finishing in the top ten in last week's Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C. He will be competing in the Barclays Championship in Farmingdale, N.Y. where the FedExCup playoffs begin this week.

The Ryder Cup is set for September 28-30 at Medinah Country Club in Chicago. Eight players have qualified for the Ryder Cup team on points. Captain Love will name four additional team members on September 4th.

"We are excited to add an outstanding Champion, Davis Love, to our field," said Tournament Director Jeff Sanchez. "We look forward to seeing Davis just two weeks after he leads the U.S. Ryder Cup team."

In previous years, Love has played in the Fry's Electronics sponsored tournaments in Las Vegas and Scottsdale. This will be his first start in the Silicon Valley.

Love is host of the McGladrey Classic at Sea Island, Georgia, a PGA TOUR tournament that will be played the week after the Open.
