Davis Love III Launches DL3Golf Website
Site Includes New Endeavor – Love Golf Academies
This week 2012 U.S. Ryder Cup Captain and McGladrey Classic Tournament Host Davis Love III launched dl3golf.com, a new website portal that features information on each of his lines of business and charities. The “DL3” site provides a brief explanation of Love’s organizations from golf design to education along with links which provide readers with additional information about each company.
The site is a means of communicating the Davis Love Companies’ commitment to the ideals of family and integrity and preserving these values through a passionate pursuit of the business of golf. In addition to Davis’ foundation and his established businesses, Love Golf Design, Love Golf Management and Paddle & Putt, the site introduces the Love’s family newest golf endeavor, Love Golf Academies.
Love Golf Academies is a new program which Davis Love III and his brother Mark have established to carry on their father’s legacy through golf education.
The brothers’ father Davis Love Jr. discovered his passion for teaching golf after competing on the PGA TOUR. He was a lead instructor for the Golf Digest Golf Schools and helped develop the Sea Island Golf Learning Center.
Davis and Mark learned to play golf from their father and his prestigious colleagues. Davis Jr. taught his sons more than the functional techniques of the game, but also how to enjoy it. He emphasized the importance of “play” in golf, something his sons hope to pass on to their future students.
Love Golf Academies promotes the idea that golf training should cater to the individual, with a focus on achieving the lowest score rather than the perfect swing.
Students aim for self-improvement via the “proper fundamentals” of the golf swing and the “experience” gained by physically playing the game. The Loves believe that through the inclusion of play in practice through experimentation and games, students learn to both enjoy and achieve.
“We feel like the game has gotten too complicated at times,” said Mark Love. “By using the fundamentals found in our father’s book, and providing programming and instruction in the manner that we learned, we can help simplify the game for students and help them get more joy out of playing…as well as helping them to improve.”
With the enjoyment of play considered the utmost importance, the academies will blend new technology and classic instruction to develop the potential of each student. Love Golf Academies encourages the simple love of the game which Davis Jr. taught his sons at an early age.
