Love is in the air -- again

This just in – Davis Love III is in contention at the Verizon Heritage golf tournament.

There’s a shock, huh?

Love has won five tartan jackets at Harbour Town through the years and, while he doesn’t need another one in his closet, he’d love to have it because it would give him another chance to win a green jacket.

After pushing to get back into the top 50 in the world rankings before the Masters to earn an invitation to Augusta, Love was there until he missed the cut at Bay Hill, dropping him out and leaving him with last weekend free.

He doesn’t want it to happen again. The quickest way to get into next year’s Masters is to win at Harbour Town this week, getting an automatic spot next April at Augusta.

“I know I can win,” Love said Friday after shooting a 4-under par 67 that put him in the top five on the leader board.

“I just have to keep playing well, win one, relax and play. This place helps me do that. I realized after Bay Hill I was trying to accomplish things on the golf course rather than just playing the golf course…The things that sound easy are sometimes the hardest to do.”

Should say four under par 67, not four over par. :-)
