Look out for Tiger Woods, Davis Love III warned, despite the former world number one's failure to qualify for the FedEx Cup play-offs.
Davis Love III and Tiger Woods were pre-tournament playing partners at the Wyndham Championship, and the former hailed their influence on the PGA Tour tournament.
Love became the third-oldest winner on the US tour on Sunday with a stunning one-stroke triumph, while Woods - who headed to Sunday in a tie for second - carded an even-par round to finish tied for 10th.
With 90-plus years of life experience between them, Woods and Love captured the imagination of the galleries in Greensboro - one winning for the first time in eight years, the other going close to breaking a two-season-long drought in a bid to qualify for the FedEx Cup play-offs and revive his old self.
Love said the pair's performance at Sedgefield Country Club showed neither Woods, nor himself, have lost their touch.
"If you look at my game and Tiger's game, we're making a lot of progress, both of us," Love said via PGATour.com.
"We're getting better and better rather than going the other direction from both missing a lot of time.
"I'm excited for him."
Woods needed a win to make it into The Barclays field next week, but the American made the turn at even par - and blew any trophy chance with a triple-bogey seven at the 11th.
"I gave myself a chance and I had all the opportunity in the world today to do it," Woods said.
"I didn't get it done.
I had some make-able putts early that I missed.
"I just wasn"t able to get any kind of roll early... had my chances to get it going, I just never did."
