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.

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.

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).
Apr 29 - 5:06 PM

Lucas Glover smoothed a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the second round of the RBC Heritage for a two-day total of 3-under 139, up 50 spots on the live leaderboard to T8.

The South Carolina native and Clemson alum opened his 14th appearance with a 1-over 72 (two birdies, one bogey, one double-bogey) and righted the ship with five birdies against a lone bogey on day two. He was blemish-free thru 17 holes, but a failed sand save on the par-4 18th put a damper on what was otherwise a stellar display of ball striking. The 36-year-old currently leads the field in greens in regulation at 80.56 percent (29/36), including 15 in his second frame, and is No. 1 as well in strokes gained: tee-to-green at a cumulative 9.517. However, at the time he signed his card, he's No. 123 in strokes gained: putting at -4.561 (-0.361 in R2).
Apr 15 - 5:02 PM

Lucas Glover bombarded Golf Club of Houston’s Tournament Course with a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the Shell Houston Open, owning a score of 5-under 139 through 36 holes.

Glover kicked off his round with a 16'8" birdie splash on the par-4 10th hole before adding a second circle on the par-3 16th hole. The Clemson product added three more birdies to remain blemish-free through 17 holes. The longest was a 23'3" bomb on the par-3 seventh hole. Glover was ready to submit the low round of the day before a three-putt on the last pushed him back to co-low round of the AM wave. Glover has finished outside the top 50 in his last five trips to Humble, Texas, but that looks to change as he sits at T14 on the live leaderboard.
Apr 1 - 5:26 PM

Lucas Glover cruised to a 4-under-par 36-32=68 during the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Glover caught fire with the flat stick today. Entering the week ranked 135th in strokes gained:putting, so it was not the route to scoring we're used to seeing from the Clemson product. On the day, he trickled in six putts form outside six feet, including four from outside eight feet. He walked off the coursing having gained 1.321 strokes with the putter. His lone blemish came at the par-3 seventh where he landed his tee ball in the greenside bunker and had troubles splashing out, resulting in a double bogey. Glover owns three top 20s at Bay Hill, and is off to another strong start this week.
Mar 17 - 5:36 PM

Lucas Glover crafted a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in today's final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for a 72-hole aggregate of 9-under 278, up 16 places on the live leaderboard to T13. UPDATE: With play completed, Glover finished in a six-way tie for 11th place.

Glover had not made the cut in four previous tries and went nine years between his third and fourth early exit in 2014, so he cashes his first check at Pebble Beach with a top-20 finish. It's going to be his fourth top 25 of the season in his eighth start. The 36-year-old split 12 (of 14) fairways (42/55 for the week) and is currently second in driving distance (311.7 yards), a lethal combination. He circled six birdies (all from inside of 11 feet) on 13 greens in regulation for a tidy 1.545 putts per GIR and put up red numbers on all four par 5s. Glover is not in the published field at next week's Northern Trust Open.
Feb 14 - 4:36 PM

Lucas Glover fired a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for a two-day total of 5-under 139, up 84 places on the leaderboard to T21.

After a birdie-less 1-over 73 on day one at Pebble Beach Golf Links, Glover ripped off seven birdies against one bogey in round two and his 66 matched Mark Hubbard for low round of the day (and tourney) at Spyglass Hill GC. He circled those seven birdies on just 10 greens in regulation, registering a stellar 1.300 putts per GIR. The 36-year-old, who's never made the scheduled 54-hole cut here in four previous tries, heads to the easiest of the three-course rota for Saturday's third round at the par-71 Monterey Peninsula CC's Shore Course.
Feb 12 - 7:17 PM

Lucas Glover glided his way to a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in round one of the CareerBuilder Challenge.

Glover put himself in scoring position all day, striping 12 (of 14) fairways on his way to seven birdies. Starting on the 10th tee, the first circle came at the par-5 11th. It was his first of four birdies on the par 5s, playing them at 4-under on the day. The lone slip-up came at the par-4 14th, one of his two missed fairways, leading to a two-putt bogey. Glover is two shots off the early lead as he preps for his battle with TPC Stadium Course in round two.
Jan 21 - 7:14 PM

Lucas Glover rallied for a 2-under-par 37-31=68 in the final round of The RSM Classic to wrap his fifth appearance at 10-under 272, good for a nine-way tie for ninth place and a personal best in the tournament.

Glover played 26 events on TOUR last season with nary a top 10. The year prior, 26 starts again, with no top 10s. This season, he opened with T17-MC-T39. That means you have to reach into the archives of 2013, April to be exact, to trace his last top-10 finish, T4 at the Zurich Classic, 68 starts ago. The 36-year-old went sub-par in each of his four rounds this week, including today's effort. He opened in 2-over 37, squashing one birdie with three bogeys, but played his inward nine in bogey-free 4-under, circling back-to-backs at 12 and 13 and again at 15 and 16. Four came the conventional way from between four and 19 feet, and he added a chip-in birdie at the par-3 12th. He finished the week eighth in strokes gained: tee-to-green and for him, a respectable 38th in strokes gained: putting. Glover's previous RSM best was T15 in 2011.

Lucas Glover has elected not to compete in this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

A T39 at the Sanderson Farms Championship is his second payday to start the new season. As a result, he's poised to make a nice move in the Web.com Tour reshuffle category after beginning 2015-16 slotted 26th. Glover will celebrate his 36th birthday this Thursday.

Lucas Glover snagged a top 25 at last year's Sanderson Farms Championship and returns this week for another look at Country Club of Jackson.

The Clemson product tallied up a score of 11-under through 54 holes at last year's edition to enter Sunday in a share of third place. Things went sour from there, as he carded a 4-over 76 to finish T22. It's no secret that putting, or lack thereof, is the name of the game for Glover. Considering his early-season ranking of 33rd in strokes gained:putting, gamers should keep close tabs on that number this week.

Lucas Glover takes a wack at Sycamore Hills Golf Club at this week's Hotel Fitness Championship in his first appearance in the Web.com Tour Finals.

Like many in the field this week, Glover is returning to Web.com 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 Web.com 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.
