Lucas Glover

Remember Bethpage Black in 2009? Lucas Glover certainly does, as the likeable American enjoyed a breakthrough Major win in the US Open at the famed Tillinghast-designed course on Long Island. A graduate ofClemson University in South Carolina, Glover earned his full card on tour in 2004 via the Nationwide Tour and has since developed into one of the world’s top players. During that weather-affected US Open at Bethpage, Glover – an avid reader – went through no fewer than four books to divert his attention from the championship. He has continued that form into this season, finishing third at the Players championship in May . . . . credits his grandfather, Dick Hendley, with introducing him to the sport. He gave him a cut-down club at the age of three and brought him to his first Masters at Augusta as a six-year-old . . . . Glover received a rather unusual “gift” – a fresh pie in the face – from his friend, fellow tour pro Johnson Wagner on the first tee of The Travelers Championship the week after winning the US Open at Blackpage.
