Davis Love Iii House

The Georgia mansion owned by former Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III was destroyed by a massive blaze in the early hours of this morning.

Dramatic footage widely shared on social media shows the St Simons Island property engulfed by flames. 

Fortunately, nobody was harmed.

In a statement released through the RSM Classic - an annual PGA Tour event hosted by Love at nearby Sea Island Golf Course - the 2012 and 2016 US Ryder Cup captain assured supporters that everyone was safe and well.

“We’re very thankful to the first responders who made a valiant effort to save our home, and we’re keeping things in perspective as people across our community and around the world are struggling with the current unprecedented health crisis.
