Davis Love III making Reno-Tahoe Open debut; fan of Stableford scoring won International twice

Davis Love III says he'd rather be playing this week in the World Golf Championships in Ohio.

That said, he's looking forward to his debut at the Reno-Tahoe Open partly because they use the same scoring system he rode to victory twice when the International was played at Castle Pines outside of Denver.

Love said Wednesday he's always been a fan of the modified Stableford format that puts a premium on eagles and birdies and makes a winner out of the man with the most points instead of the fewest strokes.

Padraig Harrington, David Toms, Stuart Appleby and defending champ J.J. Henry also are in the field that begins play Thursday on the edge of the Sierra.
