Injured Love '50/50' to play U.S. Open qualifier


DUBLIN, Ohio – Davis Love III is signed up to play Monday’s 36-hole U.S. Open qualifier in Columbus, Ohio. He’s also scheduled to play this week’s Principal Charity Classic on the Champions Tour, marking his first start of any kind since undergoing foot surgery in April.

Mac Barnhardt, Love’s manager with Lagardere, said he is “50/50” to play the qualifier and that he’s going to see how his right foot holds up.

Love planned to return in time for last month’s Wells Fargo Championship but told at The Players that he hadn’t been able to play consecutive days without discomfort.

The qualifier will be played at Brookside Golf & Country Club and Lakes Golf & Country Club.
