SHARE DAVIS LOVE SHOOTS A BLISTERING 60

Davis Love III capped a 12-under-par 60 - a score bettered only twice in PGA Tour history - with his third eagle of the day and surged into a four-stroke lead Friday in the Hawaiian Open.

A 3-wood second shot to the par-5 18th set up a downhill, 10-foot eagle putt Love ran into the heart of the hole.He also scored eagles on the first and ninth holes and had six birdies in the round that fell a stroke short of the 59's compiled by Al Geiberger in Memphis in 1977 and Chip Beck in the 1990 Las Vegas Invitational.

Only eight other 60's have been scored on Tour competition, the last by David Frost at Tucson in 1991.

Love's romp in near-ideal conditions gave him a 128 total, 16 under par, for two rounds.

Australian Brett Ogle and first-round leader Robin Freeman shared second at 132.
