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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
