Love warms up for final major with easy victory
Davis Love III cruised to his fourth title of the season here last night by winning The International to reaffirm himself as one of the favourites for this week's USPGA Championship at Oak Hill.
In an event that uses the modernised Stableford scoring system, Love lengthened his 10-shot overnight lead to 12 to finish on 46 points and leave Fiji's Vijay Singh and South Africa's Retief Goosen trailing in joint second.
Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson both limbered up for the year's final major in fine style by coming in for a tie for sixth place on 26 points.
There was also an encouraging finish for Paul Casey who moved up from being in joint 27th place overnight to record his first top 10 victory on the PGA Tour.
A two-under par 70 saw the 26-year-old from Weybridge end on 23 points after a disappointing third-round 75 on Saturday had caused him to slip him out of contention.
In the modified system eight points were awarded for a double eagle, five points for an eagle, two points for a birdie, no points for a par, minus-one point for a bogey and minus-two points for double bogey or higher.
