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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
