Cheering for the red, white and blue


SANDWICH, England – Davis Love III, Lucas Glover and Brandt Snedeker were off for their practice rounds earlier than normal on Wednesday at Royal St. George’s, but it had nothing to do with the American’s desire to beat a forecast that was anything but favorable.

The threesome wanted to be sure they were off the golf course and in front of their television in time for the Women’s World Cup semifinal match between the United States and France.

The group watched America’s quarterfinal thriller against Brazil at their rented house in Sandwich and weren’t going to miss the encore. Just don’t expect Glover to trade in his famous beard for red, white and blue face paint.
