Davis Love III, meet Roller Coaster, Roller Coaster meet Davis Love III
You remember Davis Love III, don't you?
He used to be relevant, nobody really talked about him for a few years but he came up last week because he missed his first major since 1990 after not qualifying for the Masters. Yeah, that guy.
Anyway, for some reason Davis Love is bringing to the table his inner-1997 PGA Championship this week at Hilton Head, a course he loves more than awkward visors.
DL III has won there five times and is tied for the lead right now at five-under as he concludes his round. Tiger has Torrey Pines, Jack had Augusta and apparently Davis has Hilton Head. Watching this would be like seeing Nolan Ryan, at age 61, throw on a California Angels uniform and pitch a no-hitter to a bunch of 21-year-olds at Anaheim Stadium. Ok, maybe not the same thing, but you get the point.
