Lucas Glover rocketed out of the gate with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 during round one of the Houston Open, good for sole possession of the clubhouse lead with play still in progress. UPDATE: With round one in the books, Glover sits in a share of second place, trailing Paul Dunne by one stroke.
The noted ball-striker arrived in a bit of a slump with his irons. He got back on track today while playing in wet and soggy conditions (preferred lies in use). Glover pelted 17 greens in regulation, gaining 4.097 strokes approaching-the-green, at the time he walked off the course. The Golf Club of Houston has not been happy hunting grounds for this Clemson alum, finding just one two top 30s in 11 tries. He flipped that script entirely today and now he will need to adapt to changing course conditions as the week progresses. If this lead holds it would be his seventh career first-round lead/co-lead but first since the 2010 Tournament of Champions. Mar 29 - 3:34 PM

Lucas Glover sprinted out of the gate in round one of the Valspar Championship, signing for a 1-under-par 34-36=70 to find himself in a share of eighth place on the live leaderboard.

The Clemson product is enjoying the TOUR's return to the East Coast. He pieced together a T17 at the Honda Classic in his most recent start and now finds himself inside the top 10 after trading three birdies with two bogeys. In opposite fashion as usual, Glover actually lost strokes approaching-the-green but picked up 2.648 strokes on the putting surfaces. By day's end, he rolled in four putts from outside nine feet. Glover entered with top 25s in two of his last three Valspar starts and he's on pace to make that three in his last four.

World No. 85 Lucas Glover stalled out to a 2-over-par 36-38=74 in the third round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES, dropping three spots to T5 on 6-under 210, three adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Justin Thomas and Scott Brown.

Despite the hiccup on Moving Day, the 37-year-old's in the top 5 thru 54 holes for the first time since leading the Shriners 50 weeks ago. At the Shriners, he held a one-shot lead and closed with 2-under 69 for solo 3rd, his best finish on TOUR since winning the 2011 Wells Fargo, the most recent of his three TOUR titles 158 starts ago. At the WFC, the Clemson alum came from three back with 3-under 69, eventually winning in a two-man playoff (Jonathan Byrd). After opening the CJ CUP in 69-67, he began T2 on 8-under, one back of 36-hole leader Luke List. Playing out of the final threesome, he outbalanced two birdies with four bogeys, three in his last six holes, on eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting a dismal 2.077 putts per GIR.

Aggressive play helped Lucas Glover twirl a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during the second round of The CJ CUP at Nine Bridges, staking out a share of second place on 8-under 136, alongside Scott Brown.

The ball-striking specialist lived up to his reputation today, pelting 16 greens in regulation after finding just 12 in round one. It was more than just smooth striking that got the job done today, though. Glover bombed in two of his seven birdies from just outside 35 feet, first from 35 feet at the par-4 11th and then again from 36 feet at the par-4 16th. Putting is never his strong suit, so anytime he can catch fire with the flat stick, he's going to make noise on the leaderboard. The Clemson product will not need to keep his foot on the gas for two more rounds as he searches for his fourth career win, first since the 2011 Wells Fargo Championship.

Lucas Glover took it deep in round one of the Safeway Open, twirling a 5-under-par 33-34=67 to place his name near the top of the leaderboard on Thursday afternoon.

The Clemson product is making his fourth appearance at Silverado Resort and Spa, with two missed cuts and a T17 on his record. Glover has opened each edition with a red number, but this will go in books as his best opening lap here (previously 3-under 69). The flat stick is usually his weakness but today he swallowed just one three-putt and also drained a trio of putts from outside 15 feet. Greens in Regulation were the name of the game today, as Glover pelted 15 today. If he can maintain this above-average pace on the greens, he should stick around near the top of the board, as the week progresses.

World No. 105 Lucas Glover styled a 6-under-par 31-34=65 on Moving Day at the BMW Championship to reach 10-under 203, up 26 places on the live leaderboard to T9 and matching the low round in the clubhouse with Jon Rahm, Webb Simpson and Xander Schauffele. UPDATE: With play completed, Glover is T12 and his 65 remianed tied for the low round of the day.

This is the 37-year-old's fifth appearance in the FedExCup era, first since T31 in 2011. His best so far is T13 in 2008 (Bellerive CC) and he's looking to get back to the TOUR Championship for a second time (2009). The Clemson alum landed seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.280 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 2.777 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 13 (3-putt from 84'11"), smothered by seven birdies at 2, 3, 7, 8, 14, 15 and 18, six conventional and a hole-out 4 at 8 from 61'4" away. Glover's split included three from between 14 and 31 feet, posting 1.615 putts per GIR and 3.170 SG: Putting with 25 total putts. He's projecting at 42nd in the FEC standings, up 11 spots.

World No. 106 Lucas Glover gutted out a 2-over-par 37-35=72 in the third round of THE NORTHERN TRUST for a three-day total of 2-over 212, down 20 spots to T52 with play still in progress. UPDATE: Glover concluded with 1-over 71 and at 3-over 283, is currently T41 on the leaderboard and 55th in the FedExCup standings, which is where he was entering the week.

The 37-year-old strained his right patella tendon hitting his second to the par-4 18th from 197 yards with 5-iron. On a fairly steep slope in the right side of the fairway, his right foot slipped back on the downswing, hyperextending his right knee and going to the ground, where he stayed for some time. Enough time in fact, that a group played thru. After receiving an assessment from the EMT's, the Clemson alum was able to finish, hobbling to a bogey-5 to wrap up a three-birdie five-bogey effort. He went immediately to the trailer for treatment and emerged afterwards to give the diagnosis in a post-round interview. Glover, currently 58th in the FedExCup standings, was emphatic that he plans to play the final round after an evening of rest and icing.

Lucas Glover returns to a familiar layout this week as he turns his attention toward Quail Hollow Club for the 99th PGA Championship.

The Clemson product will have plenty of fans following him this week. This week's course is the site of his third (and still most recent) win on the PGA TOUR, which came at the 2011 Wells Fargo Championship. On top of the win, he owns four other top 10s at Quail Hollow (13 starts) so he clearly likes the layout and the area. Glover arrives with just one top 40 over his last six starts but a return for comfortable hunting grounds may bring out the best in the 37-year-old.

World No. 103 Lucas Glover is in Silvis, Illinois, for his 10th John Deere Classic and checks in at 50th in the FedExCup standings.

The 37-year-old has missed his last two cuts at the Deere (2014, 2015), and overall, is 5-for-9 with two top 25s (T11/2007, T15/2013). His scoring average in 26 rounds at the par-71 layout is 69.58. Glover is 15-for-20 on the season with six top 25s and four top 10s, most recently T6 at THE PLAYERS six starts ago. His season best is 3rd at the Shriners back in November, where he was the 54-hole leader by one and closed in 2-under 69, but finished five back.

Lucas Glover coasted to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round one of the Memorial Tournament, throwing his name into the mix early in the week.

Glover was clicking on all cylinders today. He striped 10 (of 14) farirways and landed 14 greens in regulation. Generally, the flat stick is his nemesis but today he gained 1.892 strokes putting. He earned those strokes by splashing home five birdie putts, two from outside eight feet. The Clemson product is making his 13th appearance at this event and hasn't finished inside the top 30 since his 2008 debut (T8). If he can stay hot on the greens then he sports a great chance to keep his name inside the top 20 come Sunday afternoon.

World No. 124 Lucas Glover bobbed and weaved to a 2-under-par 32-38=70 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to reach 5-under 283, up eight places to T5 with play still in progress.

This was the 37-year-old's 10th appearance and just a third cash. It's going to be his second top 10 however, joining solo 3rd in 2010. After opening in 70-70-73, the Florida resident began T13 on 3-under, one adrift of the overnight top 10. He raced out to a 4-under start thru seven holes, circling birdie-2 at two and a hat-trick at 5-7, before squaring the par-3 eighth. The Clemson alum extended to 5-under thru 12 holes, adding birdie-4s at 9 and 11, now firmly in contention, but then squared three straight at 13-15. He exchanged birdie-2 a 17 with a walk-off bogey to come home in 2-over. This is Glover's sixth top 25 of the season in 15 starts and fourth top 10, first of either since T7 at Bay Hill.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 124 Lucas Glover fashioned a 2-under-par 34-36=70 on Day 2 of THE PLAYERS to post 4-under 140, up eight places to T10 with play still in progress.

The 37-year-old is making his 10th appearance, first since a missed cut in 2014. He's playing the weekend for just a third time, recording a best of solo 3rd in 2010 (70-65-69-70) and T50 in 2011. The Tequesta, Florida, resident arrived at 39th in the FedExCup standings, 12-for-14 on the season with five top 25s, three top 10s and a best of solo 3rd at the Shriners back in November. He opened with a three-birdie one-bogey 70 and hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation in R2, losing 1.873 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 3.228 against the field average. The Clemson alum circled four birdies at 11, 16, 6 and 9, overshadowing a lone blemish at the 18th, taking double bogey-6 after hitting his second to the par 4 into the water.

In Day 3 alternate-shot action at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Chez Reavie and Lucas Glover labored to a 4-over-par 39-37=76 and at 3-under 213, missed the secondary 54-hole cut by three.

With the 80-team format, the 36-hole cut was low 35 teams and ties and, a second cut of low 35 and ties after 54 holes if more than 40 teams made the first cut. Forty-two teams survived the first cut (7-under 137), triggering the second cut, which fell on 6-under 210 and sent six teams packing. Glover had played all 72 in nine of 11 tries at the Zurich (on his own) and had four top 10s. Reavie's had no luck in NOLA, missing five of seven cuts, including the last four straight, with a best of T42 (2008 debut). The duo fared well in alternate shot on Day 1 with 69, but their 68 in best ball (R2) was nearly three strokes worse than the field average. Things didn't improve on Day 3, cancelling three birdies with four bogeys and triple bogey-6 at the ninth. Other teams w/o a Sunday tee time: 211- Martin Flores/Gonzalo Fdez-Castano; Ben Martin/Ben Crane ... 213- Ollie Schniederjans/Richy Werenski; Andrew Loupe/John Peterson ... 214- Mark Hubbard/Jonathan Randolph.

World No. 157 Lucas Glover bobbed and weaved to an even-par 37-35=72 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to wrap up on 7-under 281, down one spot into a three-way T7.

This was the 37-year-old's eighth appearance with a previous-best T14 in 2014. After opening in 68-69, he closed with a couple of up-and-down 72s. The Clemson alum landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, gaining 2.793 strokes around-the-green but losing 0.793 strokes on the green. He circled four and squared four, ending the week with 17 birdies versus 10 bogeys. Glover posts his fifth top 25 of the season on 10 starts and third top 10.

World No. 157 Lucas Glover back-pedaled to an even-par 38-34=72 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 7-under 209, down two spots into a two-way T6, four in arrears to 54-hole co-leaders Kevin Kisner and Charley Hoffman.

After opening in 68-69, the 37-year-old began in a three-way T4 on 7-under, three back of Hoffman. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he found nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing 1.877 strokes off-the-tee though gaining 1.868 approaching-the-green, leading the latter with a cumulative 9.082. The Tequesta, Florida, resident exchanged three birdies with three bogeys, recording a dismal 1.929 putts per GIR, -0.921 SG: Putting, and taking 31 whacks with the flat stick.
