Ryder Cup injury scare for Davis Love

Davis Love III, who missed the American teams get together last week is taking the next two weeks off in a bid to get fully fit for the Ryder Cup.

Love is suffering from a reoccurring pinch nerve problem in his back. Two times in 1998 he was forced to withdraw from tournaments, and even if he declares himself fit there will be a question over his ability to be able to stand up to the stress of up to five rounds in three days.

"It's affecting his back, neck and shoulder and he's been advised to rest," said spokesman Mac Bernhardt. "It's something that comes and goes with Davis and it's basically down to wear and tear - and age. But there's no reason to think he won't be able to play the Ryder Cup."

Bob Estes is on standby in case of a withdrawal.
