Love, 51, rallies to win Wyndham Championship

RSS

Going against a field filled with players half his age, Davis Love III found a way to turn back the clocks at the Wyndham Championship. Here's how things ended up at Sedgefield Country Club, where the 51-year-old notched his first win since 2008:

Leaderboard: Davis Love III (-17), Jason Gore (-16), Scott Brown (-15), Paul Casey (-15), Charl Schwartzel (-15), Brooks Koepka (-14), Bill Haas (-14)

What it means: Love started the day four shots off the pace, but he made a big run up the standings with four birdies and an eagle on Nos. 2-6. He added another eagle on No. 15, then waited to see if his score would hold up. When Gore and Brown were unable to match, it gave Love his third Wyndham title (1992, 2006) and made him the third-oldest winner in PGA Tour history.

Round of the day: Love bogeyed his first hole but then went on a tear, surrounding an eagle on No. 5 with four birdies. He went out in 31, then grabbed the top spot alone with that eagle on No. 15 after nestling his approach to within 13 feet. It added up to a 6-under 64 for Love, matching his score from the opening round.

Best of the rest: Spencer Levin tallied seven birdies and an eagle against just one bogey en route to a 7-under 63. Levin entered the week near the FedEx Cup bubble, but thanks in part to closing with five birdies across his final six holes, he finished the week at 11 under and punched his ticket to The Barclays

Biggest disappointment: Brandt Snedeker's final-round 75 was certainly a shock, but Tiger Woods' short-game implosion takes the cake. Woods was in the thick of things before a disastrous triple bogey on No. 11. While he rallied with four birdies over his final six holes to shoot 70 and earn his first top-10 finish in nearly two years, Woods is officially shut out of the FedEx Cup Playoffs and still in search of his first win since the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

Shot of the day: Brown had a big crowd thanks to his pairing with Woods, but he authored the first highlight of the day on No. 3, jarring his 8-iron for a hole-in-one that briefly gave him a share of the lead.

Quote of the day: "It is incredible. I'm just incredibly blessed." - Love
