Love cruises to record-setting victory

CASTLE ROCK, Colo., Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Davis Love III won the International by a record margin Sunday and vaulted to the top of the PGA Tour money list.

Love was never challenged in the final round as he compiled four birdies and three bogeys for a solid 1-under-par 71 worth five points in the modified Stableford format at Castle Pines.

He finished with 46 points, two shy of the tournament record. His 12-point margin over runners-up Retief Goosen and Vijay Singh was easily the biggest in the 18 stagings of the event.

Love became emotional after his first victory since the May suicide of his brother-in-law, who was being investigated for stealing money from Love's bank account.

Dedicating the victory to wife Robin, Love said, "Things are going to get better for you and me and this is going to pass."

Love collected $900,000 for his 18th PGA Tour victory and fourth of the year.
