Lucas Glover takes a wack at Sycamore Hills Golf Club at this week's Hotel Fitness Championship in his first appearance in the Tour Finals.
Like many in the field this week, Glover is returning to Tour action for the first time in a long time. His last full season on the junior circuit was in 2003, where he won the Gila River Classic for his lone title in 39 career starts. Glover's course to this year's Tour Finals came the result of a 15-for-26 season on the PGA TOUR with no top 10s, good for 147th in the FedExCup standings. He managed six top 25s with a season best T15 at the Humana Challenge back at the end of January. The 35-year-old concluded his 12th season on TOUR a lofty 10th in greens in regulation but 193rd in strokes gained: putting. Sep 9 - 10:31 AM

Lucas Glover sits outside the FedExCup bubble at 155th ahead of this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Clemson alum holds a 9-for-11 record at this event, but missed cuts in his last two Sedgefield Country Club appearances. Geographically, he will feel comfortable playing down south on bermudagrass greens again. The issues remains with the flat stick, as he currently ranks 197th in strokes gained:putting. If Glover can wrangle the putter just a little this week, he could find himself in serious contention to end the 2014-15 season.

Lucas Glover has withdrawn from this week's Barbasol Championship.

After a spirited run through the spring, Glover has missed four consecutive cuts. Now 138th in the FedExCup standings, he stands to lose his PGA TOUR card.
Jul 13 - 10:41 AM

Lucas Glover turns his attention to TPC Deere Run this week for his ninth appearance at the John Deere Classic.

Glover has many fond memories to pull from as he navigates TPC Deere Run. Of note, he posted a second-round 9-under 62 in 2013 on his way to a T15. Legacy gamers don't need to be told how poor his flat stick is, currently ranking 201st in strokes gained:putting. Glover's tee-to-green game keeps him in contention for sleeper status, week in and week out.
Jul 8 - 7:48 PM

Lucas Glover shot 3-under-par 35-32=67 in today's opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The 2009 U.S. Open champion arrived in Memphis having connected five paydays for the first time since the conclusion of the 2011 season. Today's aggregate is his lowest in a first round since he cracked the lid on a T4 in New Orleans at the end of April in 2013. Suffice it to say that he's feelin' it, even if relatively speaking. He hit just 12 greens in regulation at TPC Southwind today, but he converted birdies on half of those chances, including a gem from just outside 20 feet at the par-4 10th hole. He also swallowed three bogeys, but none of which were as a result of a three-putt.
Jun 11 - 1:52 PM

Lucas Glover descends upon the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and enters the festivities 117th in FedExCup points.

Glover is a veteran of 10 prior starts at the Crowne Plaza Invite cashing five times, but has yet to record a top-10 finish (T15 in 2008 edition his best). He's missed the cut in each of his last two attempts collectively shooting 14-over-par. On the season, the 35-year-old is 10-for-15 with five top 25s, including a T18 at the RBC Heritage, often considered a similar tee-to-green test as Colonial CC. Glover ranks a lofty 4th on TOUR in greens in regulation but a woeful 204th in strokes gained: putting.
May 19 - 8:07 PM

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.
Mar 30 - 10:06 AM

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.
