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.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 157 Lucas Glover tacked on a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in today's second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 7-under 137, up one spot on the live leaderboard to T2 and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play winding down, Glover is T4, three back of leader Charley Hoffman, whose 66 tied the low round of the day with Marc Leishman and Tommy Fleetwood.

The 37-year-old striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.857 strokes off-the-tee and 3.060 tee-to-green. He's the current stat leader in SGTTG with a cumulative 8.399. The Tequesta, Florida, resident squared a lone bogey-4 at 2 (his 11th hole), erasing it with birdies at 12, 14, 16 and 6, each from inside of eight feet. He recorded 0.643 in SG: Putting and 1.769 putts per GIR, taking 29 total whacks with the flat stick.

Lucas Glover flew up the leaderboard in round one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, styling a 4-under-par 35-33=68 to position himself one off the early lead.

Glover is know for his tremendous ball-striking, and he lived up to his reputation on day one. The Clemson product gave himself seven birdie looks from inside 10 feet. That was good for 5.599 strokes gained approaching-the-green. It's hard to gain strokes with the flat stick when you're striping it that good, but Glover did manage to roll in four putts from the 8-to-18 foot range. The 37-year-old has finished T27 or better in four of his seven previous API appearances and he's off to another good start at Bay Hill Club and Lodge.

World No. 161 Lucas Glover tacked on a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in today's third round of the Valspar Championship for a three-day total of 6-under 207, up seven places to T7 with play still in progress.

After opening his 14th (straight) appearance with 68-70, the 37-year-old began the third round on 4-under (T14), six in arrears of 36-hole leader Adam Hadwin. He went out in blemish-free 3-under with birdies at Nos. 1, 4 (from 14'9") and 6, coming home in 1-over with a lone bogey-4 at 13, missing a par-saver from 48 inches. The Florida resident conjured six (of 13) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, gaining 2.837 strokes tee-to-green though just 0.190 SG: Putting.
Mar 11 - 4:56 PM

World No. 161 Lucas Glover is in Palm Harbor, Florida, for this week's Valspar Championship and arrives at 32nd in the FedExCup standings.

The 37-year-old missed the cut last year by four (75-74) but obviously likes Innisbrook's Copperhead Course (par 71) as this is his 14th straight appearance. Of his eight cashes, four have been top 25s with one top 10 (T4/2007). The 7,340-yard layout is not a stock 71, five par 3s and four par 4s. Along those lines, the Tequesta, Florida, resident ranks 34th on TOUR in par-5 scoring (4.55) and 98th in par-3 scoring (3.03). After missing the cut at the season-opener in Napa, he's cashed seven consecutive, posting three top 25s and back-to-back top 5s at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms (T5), and solo 3rd at the Shriners, where he was the 54-hole leader.

World No. 182 Lucas Glover readies for his ninth CareerBuilder Challenge and kicks off the 3-course rota on the TPC Stadium Course.

The 36-year-old is 7-for-8 in the Coachella Valley with five top 25s, including a T15 in 2015 and T17 last year (66-71-65-70). He has one top 10, a T10 back on debut in 2006 when it was a 90-hole event. The Clemson alum opened this season with a missed cut at the Safeway in Napa, but posted a T5 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms and chased with solo 3rd at the Shriners, the first time he's connected top-10 finishes since 2006. He was the 54-hole leader (by one) at the Shriners but backed up with a 2-under 69, dropping to 0-for-3 as the 54-hole leader/co-leader. The 3-time TOUR winner's most recent victory remains the 2011 Wells Fargo and has been idle since a T36 at the RSM in October.

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.

Lucas Glover styled a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, climbing seven spots to the top of affairs on 15-under 198, one clear of overnight leader Rod Pampling and Brooks Koepka.

The 36-year-old was T3 thru 54 holes last week in Mississippi before a 2-under 70 left him T5, his first top 10 since solo 8th at the Wells Fargo back in May. He chasing his fourth TOUR title in his 341st career start, first since a playoff win at the 2011 Wells Fargo. After opening his sixth appearance in Vegas with 68-65, the transplanted Floridian bagged his second straight 65, camouflaging a lone bogey-5 at the third (failed scramble) with five birdies, including a 43'8" bomb at the par-3 eighth, chasing with eagle-3 at the ninth from 8'9". He gained 4.459 strokes on the field, most notably a 2.648 SG: Putting.

Lucas Glover bombarded TPC Summerlin with birdies en route to a 6-under-par 33-32=65 during round two of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, finding himself inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard on 9-under 133.

The Clemson product arrived with three-straight early exits at the Shriners and does most of best work on the East Coast. Don't tell him that, though, as he's cruising through two rounds in Vegas. In typical Glover fashion, he landed 17 greens today, but surprisingly gained 1.349 strokes putting on the round. He earned that number by splashing home six putts from outside seven feet. That includes a trio of putts from the 13-to-23 foot range. Glover is always a threat to lead the field in GIR percentage, but if his flat stick stays hot over the weekend then he could be in the running for his fourth career PGA TOUR victory. His last win came at the 2011 Wells Fargo Championship.
