Men's golf

The season hasn't started but former UNC golfer Davis Love III(at a spry 51 years old) became the third oldest player to win a PGA Tour event on Sunday. Love shot a 6-under 64 to take the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro by one stroke over Jason Gore. When the day started much of the attention was on whether Tiger Woods could record his first win in two years. Love quietly put together an excellent round then waited over an hour while the final groups finished up.

The win was Love's 21st on his career. Earlier this year he was named captain of the United States 2016 Ryder Cup team.
