Davis Love III announces he’s no longer with CBS Sports

News

Davis Love III announced on Tuesday he will no longer be working for CBS Sports.

In a statement on Twitter, Love thanked CBS for the opportunity but said he wanted to return his primary focus to playing.

“Since golf returned in June, CBS has allowed me time to focus on my family, play a few tournaments, and bring some stability back in a difficult year,” Love said. “I have realized in this time my passion to play is still strong, and my heart yearns to be home.”

Last October CBS Sports hired Love, one of the more respected personalities in the sport, as an analyst its hopes of revamping its golf telecast. But there were growing pains as Love assimilated to his new position. His attention was also divided, as his house was consumed by fire in late March.

A 21-time tour winner and 1997 PGA champ, Love has served as captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team twice and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2017. In a statement, Love—who has made eight starts on the PGA Tour this season as well as one appearance on the Champions circuit—said he will return to playing full-time at next week’s PGA Championship.
