GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) – Davis Love III won the Wyndham Championship on Sunday to become the third-oldest winner in PGA Tour history, while Tiger Woods’ season came to an abrupt end.
   
The 51-year-old Love closed with a 6-under 64 for a one-stroke victory over Jason Gore.
   
The dominant storyline all week was the mere presence of Woods, who needed a win to earn a spot in the FedEx Cup playoffs opener next week.
   
He was poised to challenge Sunday, starting just two strokes off the lead. But he only had one birdie during his first 10 holes, dropping way off the pace with a triple bogey on the par-4 11th. Woods shot a 70, finished four strokes back and ended at No. 178 in the standings, well outside the top 125.
   
Love – who started at No. 186 – played himself into The Barclays by earning 500 FedEx Cup points and $972,000 in prize money.
