Lucas Glover rallied for a 2-under-par 37-31=68 in the final round of The RSM Classic to wrap his fifth appearance at 10-under 272, good for a nine-way tie for ninth place and a personal best in the tournament.
Glover played 26 events on TOUR last season with nary a top 10. The year prior, 26 starts again, with no top 10s. This season, he opened with T17-MC-T39. That means you have to reach into the archives of 2013, April to be exact, to trace his last top-10 finish, T4 at the Zurich Classic, 68 starts ago. The 36-year-old went sub-par in each of his four rounds this week, including today's effort. He opened in 2-over 37, squashing one birdie with three bogeys, but played his inward nine in bogey-free 4-under, circling back-to-backs at 12 and 13 and again at 15 and 16. Four came the conventional way from between four and 19 feet, and he added a chip-in birdie at the par-3 12th. He finished the week eighth in strokes gained: tee-to-green and for him, a respectable 38th in strokes gained: putting. Glover's previous RSM best was T15 in 2011.
