Ryder Cup loss still weighs on PGA host Davis Love

SEA ISLAND, Georgia (AFP) - Davis Love is excited to play host to some of the United States (US) PGA's top players when the US$4 million (S$4.9 million) McGladrey Classic opens on Thursday, but he cannot get the US Ryder Cup loss to Europe off his mind.

Love was the American captain who saw Europe stage the greatest last-day victory fightback on opposing soil in Ryder Cup history to retain the trophy with a 14 1/2-13 1/2 triumph last month.

"I'm still not sleeping well. I still think about things," Love said on Wednesday. "We didn't win. So I accept that."

Love ranks 104th on the season money list entering the penultimate event of the campaign, which concludes after next month's event at Disney World. He hopes for a 27th consecutive spot in the top 100 on the PGA money list.
