After a long wait, Davis Love III finally shed the title of "best player never to have won a major yet" by making it to the winner's circle in the 1997 PGA Championship at Winged Foot. The 32-year-old Love shot a 4-under 66 in the final round to finish at 11-under, five strokes ahead of Justin Leonard. As Love made his final stride up the 18th fairway, a rainbow appeared. Interestingly enough, a rainbow was also spotted shortly after Love's victory at the 1992 Players Championship leading many to believe that his father's spirit has been smiling on him. Love's father, Davis Love Jr., was a well-known Golf Digest instructor, who died in a plane crash in 1988. Love dedicated the book "Every Shot I Take" to his father, who was one of his strongest influences in golf as well as in life.
