GREENSBORO, N.C. — There’s going to be a whole lot of Love at the Wyndham Championship.

Tournament director Mark Brazil said Tuesday that Dru Love received a sponsor’s exemption to next month’s event and will join his father — three-time winner Davis Love III — in the field.

The two Loves played The Greenbrier Classic and the Barbasol Championship together, and Davis Love III caddied for his son at the U.S. Open.

The Love family has strong ties to the Greensboro-based tournament. Davis Love Jr. played here four times from 1959-68 and Davis Love III counts victories here in 1992, 2006 and 2015 among his 21 career wins.

Dru Love is in his first year as a professional after playing college golf at Alabama.
