Golf: Love Ties PGA Record at International Tournament - 2003-08-09


Davis Love of the United States has tied a Professional Golf Association tour record after firing three eagles in the second round of The International tournament in Castle Rock, Colorado.

The tournament is scored using the modified Stableford system, which awards players points for making eagles (two-under-par) and birdies (one-under-par), but deducts points for scoring a bogey (one-over-par) or worse.

Love earned 17 points in Friday's second round for a two-round 36-hole total score of 36. He fired three eagles, good for five points each, in his first 10 holes at the Castle Pines Golf Club.

Love has a sizable 10-point lead heading into Saturday's third round.

John Rollins is alone in second place with 26 points and fellow American Phil Mickelson is in third with a total of 22 points. Fiji's Vijay Singh and American Kent Jones are tied for fourth place with 19 points apiece.
