The tournament has raised more than $13 million in its first decade to support local charities focused on children and families in need through the Davis Love Foundation. It was not clear who, if anyone, was at home when it burned down.

American golfer Davis Love III's home was destroyed by an early morning fire in Georgia on Friday but the 21-time PGA Tour victor said he and his wife were not injured in the early morning blaze.

Davis Love III, a former PGA champion and two-time Ryder Cup captain, is one of the most prominent figures at Sea Island. It is part of the "Golden Isles" about 40 miles north of the Florida state line.

"It was completely engulfed by flames upon our arrival", Jordan told ESPN.

The U.S. Ryder Cup captain in 2012 and 2016, Love was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2017.

"We're very grateful to the primary responders who made a valiant effort to avoid wasting our home and we're maintaining issues in perspective as folks throughout our neighborhood and world wide are scuffling with the present unprecedented well being disaster".

A 911 call came in at 5:18 p.m., and the first responders were on site within six minutes, according to Glynn County Fire & Rescue Fire Chief Randy Jordan, who added that the source of the fire is still unconfirmed. 'We appreciate all your thoughts and prayers and your respect for our privacy'.
