Both Davis Love III and his son Davis Love IV, who goes by “Dru” attempted to qualify for the U.S. Open last week in sectional qualifiers. Love III didn’t qualify, but Dru was named an alternate.
Dru, 23, made the field when the last few spots were named after the FedEx St. Jude Classic, and will have a familiar face on the bag for his first career major: Davis Love III.
- Davis Love III has played in 23 editions of the U.S. Open, but this year, will be there as the caddy for his son, Dru.
- Dru recently finished his collegiate golf career, playing for the University of Alabama.
- The U.S. Open will be Dru’s second career PGA Tour start. He missed the cut at his last event, the 2015 RSM Classic, a tournament hosted by Love III.
- Davis Love III has 20 career victories on the PGA Tour, including one major. His insight could be very valuable to Dru.
