You would think that the Chrysler Classic of Greensboro would be an easy mark for Davis Love III, since he was born and raised in North Carolina, went to college at Chapel Hill and redesigned Forest Oaks Country Club, where the tournament is played, in 2003. And while Love won there in 1992, since completing the redesign he has missed the cut twice and withdrawn once. In fact, Love hadn't won at all since the '03 International, a span of 76 starts. But after he failed to qualify for the U.S. Ryder Cup team--which he blames on trying too hard and spending too much time scoreboard-watching--Love took a five-week break, during which he worked on a stance adjustment with instructors Jack Lumpkin and Todd Anderson. At Greensboro the change kicked in, and Love avoided looking at the leader board until he had a two-shot lead on the 72nd hole. From there he parred out to finish at 16-under 272 and claim the $900,000 first-place check, which moved him from 39th to 15th on the money list and secured a spot in the Tour Championship.
