Overnight leader Lucas Glover backed up with a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to finish off his sixth appearance on 17-under 267, down two spots to solo third, three shy of champion Rod Pampling, who shot 65.
The 36-year-old, six days shy of his birthday (Nov. 12th), began the finale one clear of Pampling and Brooks Koepka (who completed the final threesome). It was his third career 54-hole lead/co-lead in his 341st career start, first since the 2013 Zurich Classic, and drops to 0-for-3 in that regard. Chasing his fourth TOUR title, first since a playoff win at the 2011 Wells Fargo, the Clemson alum outpaced bogey-5 at the third (failed sand save) with birdies on holes 2 (from 68'5"), 4, and 9 but trailed Pampling by 1 at the turn. He answered bogey-5 at the 11th (failed scramble) with birdies at 12, 13 and 15, but finished bogey-bogey, also on failed up-and-downs. On a positive note, his solo third is his first podium since the above mentioned win in 2011.
