"It's intense," Love said. "Do we want to pummel them? Yes we do. We want to win.
"You know what, Olly and I will go toe-to-toe at some point because it's intense. It'll be about carts going over a bridge or he has more carts than me or something.
"I remember Tom (Kite) with Seve (Ballesteros) once when Tom's ball was clearly on the green, but Seve asked about it (whether it could be marked) and I went in and said 'OK boys, back off'. It was the way it was handled.
