Lucas Glover turned in a 4-under-par 35-32=67 for his second round of the RBC Heritage to touch 5-under 137 at the break.
He's just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Glover set up the sub-70 with 11 (of 14) fairways hit and 14 greens in regulation. He went 4-for-4 in scrambling but three-jacked the green from inside 16 feet at the par-4 sixth for his lone bogey. Elsewhere, he circled five birdies, including a five-yarder from the fringe at the par-5 fifth and a conversion from 22'4" at the par-4 18th. Glover arrived at Harbour Town slotted 140th in the FedExCup standings. He's gone 52 straight starts sans a top 10. Apr 17 - 2:06 PM

Lucas Glover has been removed from the published field of this week's Shell Houston Open.

He hasn't had much success at the Golf Club of Houston in recent years, so he probably won't miss it. That said, this is the first time in his 12-year run as a PGA TOUR member that he's taking a pass. Glover is currently 128th in the FedExCup standings. Since a spirited T24 at Copperhead, he's 0-for-2 to fall 13 spots in points. The 35-year-old is not eligible for the Masters, so he'll be missing the season's first major for the first time since 2009. It was the last major before he won the U.S. Open at Bethpage.

Lucas Glover could only muster a 1-over-par 36-36=72 in the third round of the Valspar Championship and is three off the clubhouse lead at 3-under 210 with 18 to play.

He circled three birdies, but squared four bogeys on his navigation of the Copperhead Course. All four of his bogeys came on par 3s, and two were three putts. Known as an awful putter, he did some damage at times on Saturday. His birdies fell from 9'6", 13'2", and 15'3" on the par-4 third, sixth and 12th holes. For fans of Glover, this might actually be a good 54-hole resting place for the former U.S. Open winner. He has earned the reputation of being a pretty poor player in the final round of tournaments where he is close to the lead.
Mar 14 - 5:14 PM

Lucas Glover spun a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-35=69 in today's second round of the Valspar Championship to post 4-under 138 at the break.

Anyone that has followed his career knows that he's been one of the best ball-strikers on the PGA TOUR and one of its worst putters. His latest contribution to the sample size is underway at Copperhead where he's piped 21 (of 26) fairways and hit 29 greens in regulation. When he signed his card today, he led the field in aggregate strokes gained: tee-to-green at just under 7.700. However, he ranked outside the top 105 in strokes gained: putting. Today's clip read -2.134 at last check. He hit 16 GIR and converted two birdies on Friday. The first par breaker was a bit of a gift, too, as he holed out from the rough 17 yards away at the par-3 13th. Glover whiffed on four looks inside 10 feet, but he's only two strokes off the 36-hole lead.
Mar 13 - 6:55 PM

Lucas Glover aced the par-3 sixth hole at Riviera Country Club en route to an even-par 34-37=71 in today's second round of the Northern Trust Open, but he will not make the cut.

Glover opened with a 4-over 75 during which he split only four (of 14) fairways and hit nine greens in regulation. A lone birdie had no change against five bogeys. Today's round was obviously better, but it was also unique in the sense that he didn't have any 3s on his scorecard. He birdied the par-3 fourth from 10'3" before jarring his tee ball at the 151-yard sixth where the bunker in the middle of the green is not in play today. (The hole location is front right.) Glover then three-putted from the fringe for bogey at the par-3 14th before nearly acing the par-3 16th where he was left a one-inch putt for birdie. His only other par breaker was a birdie-4 at No. 11. This is his third consecutive MC at the NTO, but today's end a consecutive cuts made streak at four dating back to the Sony Open a month ago.
Feb 20 - 4:57 PM

Lucas Glover battled for a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open to reach the 54-hole mark at 8-under 208.

Glover is one off the clubhouse lead established by J.B. Holmes, and two behind Harris English in real time. The Clemson product spread three bogeys and three birdies across his first 17 holes at Torrey Pines South before ending his round with a bang. Bringing back memories of his birdie from a greenside bunker on the 72nd hole of 2005 FUNAI Classic to claim his first PGA TOUR victory by a shot, he holed out for eagle on the par-5 18th to end his third round of the Farmers Insurance Open from 45'6". It's been a while since Glover has been in contention, so Sunday's finale should serve as quite the measuring stick for the current state of his game.
Feb 7 - 4:59 PM

Lucas Glover arrived at the halfway point of the Farmers Insurance Open in 6-under-par 70-68=138 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole lead.

He's turning back the clock at Torrey Pines with 14 greens in regulation in both rounds. Glover has circled an eagle and nine birdies, including six on the North Course today. This is his fourth consecutive payday. That may not seem impressive, but consider that he hadn't connected four in a row since he opened the 2011 season with the same.
Feb 6 - 7:11 PM

Lucas Glover is a veteran of six previous Humana Challenges and is ready for a seventh edition this week.

Glover nearly won in 2007, but an extremely windy final round led to an 80 and forced him to settle for a T13. He made the cut in each of his first five tries before finally missing the cut last year. That follows along nicely with his career arc, as his putting has deteriorated over the last few years and led to a lengthy span of poor play. The 2009 U.S. Open champion made the 36-hole playing cut at the Sony Open in Hawaii last week, but a third-round 73 ultimately led to a MDF.

Jan 20 - 8:26 PM

Lucas Glover entered the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season on the final year of his exemption stemming from his win at the 2011 Wells Fargo Championship.

Glover's five-year exemption for winning the 2009 U.S. Open ended at the 2014 Wyndham Championship, but he received an additional year from the triumph at Quail Hollow. While he missed three of his five cuts to start the new season, he did show signs of life with a T22 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. Glover ranked dead last in strokes gained: putting in 2013-14, so it is imperative that he takes advantage of his opportunities on the rare occasion that the flat stick cooperates.

Lucas Glover thrust himself into contention at the Sanderson Farms Classic with a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round and is tied for the clubhouse lead at 11-under 205.

The Clemson Tiger stole seven birdies from the Country Club of Jackson, suffering a double bogey at the par-3 fourth hole as his only blemish. His ball-striking has been excellent, as he led the tournament in strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time of his posting. The difference this week has been his putting. Though he ranked 47th in strokes gained: putting when he concluded his round, he's usually much worse. Glover is playing with a heavy heart this week. His grandfather, Dick Hendley, passed away on the night of October 31st. Perhaps the 2009 U.S. Open winner has some extra inspiration that is fueling his best tournament in quite some time. He credits his grandfather with getting him started in golf.

Lucas Glover spun a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to post 6-under 138 at the break.

He's just four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but let's just enjoy today's success for a moment. He hit 13 greens and converted seven birdies, including three straight to open his round on the back side of the Country Club of Jackson. At last check, his strokes gained: putting for the day measured 1.506, which is a rare deviation from the norm. He carded a 67 in the second round of The McGladrey Classic two weeks ago, too, and then missed the 54-hole cut. That would require a serious reversal of fortune to be repeated in Mississippi, but unfortunately he hasn't given us any reason not to rule it out. Glover has a long way to go to find consistency again, so days like today have to feel really good.

Lucas Glover reached the midpoint of The McGladrey Classic in even-par 73-67=140 to survive the cut on the number.

Not only was today's 3-under aggregate his lowest since a second-round 66 at the 2014 WM Phoenix Open, but Glover will cash for the first time anywhere in eight starts (Memorial). He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation at Seaside today. It was a stark reversal of his lid-lifter during which he went just 1-for-13 in birdie chances and squared four bogeys. He's one of 88 golfers that survived today's cut -- 22 on the number -- so a second cut of low 70 and ties will fall at the conclusion of 54 holes.

Lucas Glover gets a fresh start this week as the 2014-15 season kicks off at the Frys.com Open.

Glover had an off-year to say the least, posting a 7-for-26 record with just one finish inside the top 35. A new season brings a fresh slate for three-time TOUR winner to work with. Looking at the stat sheet, it was easy to see the problem lied with the flat stick, as he ranked 55th in strokes gained: tee-to-green but gave it all back and then some with a -1.472 strokes gained-putting. Gamers should wait for a good outing or two before hopping back on the train.

Lucas Glover turns his attention to Sedgefield Country Club for the Wyndham Championship.

Glover enters the week 184th in the FEC standings and having failed to crack the top 60 in an event since his T42 at the Masters. His problem is easy to identify. While he's striking the ball about as well as he did when he won the 2009 U.S. Open and played on the 2007 and 2009 Presidents Cup teams, he can't putt. While his exemption from winning the 2009 U.S. Open would be ending this season, he bought himself an extra year on TOUR via his 2011 win at Quail Hollow. That lessens the stakes greatly for the Clemson product, as he is merely fighting for a berth in the FedExCup Playoffs.

Lucas Glover signed for a 2-over-par 38-35=73 following his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

The last we were made aware, Glover was considering shutting it down for the remainder of the season, so there's good news that he's back in action. However, taking the last three weeks off did nothing to improve his putting. The 2009 U.S. Open entered the week ranked 190th in strokes gained, 182nd in one-putt percentage and 189th in three-putt avoidance. Today's experience at the par-5 second hole provided an example of the kind of year it's been. After setting up a birdie look from 15'2" at the par-5 second hole, he proceeded to four-jack his way to a 7. His fifth strike (2'11") measured longer than his fourth (2'8"). Glover is fully exempt through next season, but he seems years away from regaining confidence standing over putts.
