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. Nov 6 - 7:25 PM

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.
Nov 4 - 4:36 PM

Lucas Glover backed up with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to wrap his fourth appearance on 15-under 273, down two places into a three-way T5, five in arrears to champion and PGA TOUR rookie Cody Gribble.

The 36-year-old was making his 340th career start and chasing his fourth title, first since a playoff win at the 2011 Wells Fargo. He began the finale in a three-way T3 on 13-under after rounds of 66-69-68, one back of 54-hole co-leaders Luke List and Chris Kirk. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he landed eight (of 14) fairways and a week-low 12 greens in regulation, but still led the field in the latter at 83.33 percent (60/72). The Clemson alum bogeyed Nos. 7, 10 (3-putt from 29'6") and 17, outpacing them with birdies at 3, 5, 11, 15 and 16 (16'9"). He had two top 10s last season in 23 starts and this was his first since solo 8th at the Wells Fargo back in May.
Oct 30 - 7:49 PM

Three-time TOUR winner Lucas Glover tossed up a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in today's third round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to reach 13-under 203, up one place into a three-way T3, one adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Luke List and Chris Kirk.

The 36-year-old hasn't won since the 2011 Wells Fargo Championship where he came from three back in the final round with a 3-under 69 and won in a playoff. In 130 starts since, he's logged but four top 10s, most recently solo 8th at the 2016 WFC. The Clemson alum is in prime position to end the win-less drought following a five-birdie one-bogey effort in R3. He exchanged birdie-4 at the third with a bogey at the par-4 sixth, but added further circles on holes 8, 10, 11 and 14. Glover carved out a pedestrian 0.197 SG: Putting on 17 greens in regulation and will play out of the penultimate threesome in Sunday's finale.
Oct 29 - 7:32 PM

Lucas Glover cruised to a 3-under-par 33-36=69 during the second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, reaching 9-under 135 on the week to grab a share of the clubhouse co-lead with play still in progress.

After an uncharacteristic first round where Glover used his flat stick as the primary weapon, the Clemson grad reverted back to his usual self today. He pelted 16 greens in regulation but lost 2.144 strokes putting on the day. That included a missed 5'1" putt at the par-4 15th which lead to his first, and still only, bogey of the week. On the week, Glover currently ranks fourth in strokes gained off-the-tee, and second in strokes gained approach-the-green. His ball-striking should keep him in the mix over the weekend, but he'll need a bit of help from the putter if he wants to hoist the trophy come Sunday night.

Lucas Glover torched the Country Club of Jackson to the tune of a bogey-free, 6-under-par 35-31=66 during round one of the Sanderson Farms Championship, vaulting him into the top spot in the clubhouse with play still in progress.

The Clemson Tiger is making his fourth appearance at the SFC, third at the CC of Jackson. Playing his ninth round at the venue, this goes in the books as his new low, previously posting 5-under 67 on two occasions. Known for his struggles on the greens, Glover reversed course today by splashing home four putts from 7-to-15 feet, walking off the course gaining 2.161 strokes putting. Taking advantage of familiar bermuda greens, it would not be surprising to see Glover hang around near the top for the remainder of the week. After two seasons of missing the FedExCup Playoffs, the 37-year-old got his game back in gear last season to finish 106th in the FEC race.
Oct 27 - 1:17 PM

Lucas Glover bombarded Sedgefield Country Club with a 9-under-par 30-31=61 during round two of the Wyndham Championship, entering the weekend at 10-under 130, two strokes off the pacesetter Si Woo Kim.

Glover showcased what is possible when his flat stick shows up. Entering the week ranked 161st in strokes gained putting, he set the stats aside as he took on the bermudagrass greens of Sedgefield Country Club. The Clemson product splashed home six putts from outside nine feet with three of them dialed in from outside 20 feet. After a 26'1" birdie at the par-3 16th, Glover stepped on the 17th tee box tied with the fresh course record (set earlier today by Si Woo Kim), needing a birdie at 17 or 18 to card the coveted 59. Instead he left 8'1" birdie attempt short at 17 and whiffed from inside two feet on the closing par-4 18th to settle for 61, a new career low for Glover (previously 62 in R2 of 2013 John Deere Classic). Despite that error at the last, he walked off the course gaining 3.595 strokes putting on the day.

Lucas Glover looks to get back on the horse at the Wyndham Championship after a pre-tournament withdraw in his last scheduled event.

Aug 17 - 11:44 AM

Prior to the start of the event Lucas Glover has withdrawn from this week's Travelers Championship, Lucas Lee will take his spot in the field.

There is no injury to report at the time for this 11th-hour WD, but we will update if that changes. Gamers should swap him out of all lineups if they have the time. Glover is 91st in the FedExCup standings so he has a bit of wiggle room in terms of making the FEC Playoffs. In his place, Lucas Lee will be making his course debut at TPC River Highlands.

Lucas Glover opened his week at the Quicken Loans National with a 3-under-par 34-34=68 to vault up the leaderboard quickly.

Glover arrived with a 5-for-7 record at this event, but he's posted red numbers just once in the first round. It was 1-under 69 in the 2009 edition on his way to a T5 finish. Today he was greeted by a rain-soaked course that led to preferred lies in round one. He took full advantage of the softer greens, pelting 17 of them in regulation, and putted right around field average on the day. Glover is always a threat to contend if his putter can warm up, but that is always a big if.
Jun 23 - 1:54 PM

Lucas Glover orchestrated a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the second round of the Memorial to post 7-under 137, up 32 spots on the live leaderboard to T12.

The 36-year-old is making his 13th appearance and played his 32nd round at Muirfield Village with today's 67 equaling his best, which he shot the first time he played it 11 years ago. In fact, it's just his ninth sub-par lap, joining up with a first-round 70 on Day 1. Glover realized the most out of his round on Friday with 3.501 SG: Approach-to-the-Green but also carded 1.565 SG: Putting. He circled seven on 14 greens in regulation for 1.571 putts per GIR against failed scrambles at Nos. 1 and 17. Two of his seven conversions traveled greater than 16 feet with a long of 35'10" at the par-3 16th.
Jun 3 - 5:22 PM

Past champ Lucas Glover carved out a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in today's final round of the Wells Fargo Championship for a 72-hole tally of 6-under 282, down one on the live leaderboard to solo eighth.

The 2011 playoff winner began the final frame in a two-way T7 on 5-under after opening his 13th appearance in 71-70-70. He birdied the fifth and the ninth, both from inside of four feet, to erase a failed scramble at the par-3 sixth. The 36-year-old circled the 12th from 4'7" for birdie-3 but hit his second to the par-4 18th into the water leading to a walk-off bogey-5. Otherwise, Glover went 7-for-9 in scrambles en route to his fifth top 10 at Quail Hollow and just his second of the season on 16 starts, first since the calendar flipped to 2016. He posted four in the red for seven straight dating back to last week's 54-hole Zurich.
May 8 - 5:45 PM

Past champ Lucas Glover orchestrated a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship for a three-day total of 5-under 211, up six spots on the leaderboard to T7.

The 2011 playoff winner began Moving Day on 3-under (T13) after opening with 71-70. He was 2-over thru six holes on Friday, squaring bogeys on Nos. 2 and 6 on failed scrambles, missing par putts from inside of six feet. The 36-year-old didn't use the flat stick at all on the seventh, chipping-in for eagle-3 from 28'4" away, and added a 12-footer for birdie at the par-4 12th and a two-putt birdie on the par-5 15th that completed his scoring. Glover managed just six (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, playing his final 12 holes in blemish-free 4-under.
May 7 - 6:38 PM

Lucas Glover submitted a 3-under-par 35-34=69 during round two of this week's Zurich Classic, climbing to 6-under 138 on the week.

Glover striped 12 (of 14) fairways on the round, making it easier to attack the greens. That's exactly what he did, landing 15 greens in regulation. Opening on the back nine, the Clemson product circled three birdies before making the turn, all coming on putts from inside five feet. His lone bogey of the round came at the par-4 16th hole as he came up short on his approach shot and couldn't save par from 9'3". Through 36 holes Glover's strokes gained putting sits at +0.229, which is better than his baseline SGP as he arrived with a ranking of 170th (-0.328 per round).
