The home of pro golfer Davis Love III was destroyed by fire early Friday morning.

Love and his wife, Robin, were home at the time of the fire in St. Simons Island, Ga., but were not injured.

“While everyone in our family is saddened at the loss of our home that was filled with so much laughter and incredible memories, we’re very blessed that everyone is safe and unharmed,” Love said in a statement.

“We’ve very thankful to the first responders who made a valiant effort to save our home, and we’re keeping things in perspective as people across our community and around the world are struggling with the current unprecedented health crisis.”

Randy Jordan, the chief of Glynn County Fire & Rescue, told ESPN that his department received a call at 5:18 am and responded within six minutes.

“It was completely engulfed in flames at our arrival,” he said. “It is a total loss.”

Jordan said the cause of the blaze had not been determined.

Love, 55, is now an on-course analyst for CBS Sports. A 21-time PGA Tour winner, he is a two-time captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team and the winner of the 1997 PGA Championship. He was enshrined into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2017.

He continues to play select tournaments on the PGA Tour and the PGA Tour Champions.
