Lucas Glover — No. 118

Another past winner at the Wells Fargo Championship, Glover hoisted the trophy at the 2011 edition by shooting four rounds in the 60s and taking down Jonathan Byrd in a playoff. While he’ll have to wait until the PGA Championship to get another crack at Quail Hollow, this South Carolina native looks like a good bet to find success in the Tar Heel State nevertheless.

Glover is currently enjoying his best season in recent memory, having picked up five top 25 finishes so far. He may not have played all that well last month, but he had an outstanding March that was highlighted by a tie for seventh at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. That consistency has lifted him to the 38th spot on the FedEx Cup points list, but it has yet to translate into upward mobility in the Official World Golf Ranking — at this writing, he’s still 118th, far below where he needs to be to qualify for the game’s more prestigious events. However, as the PGA Tour’s 10th-ranked player in strokes gained: tee-to-green, he’s sure to do some more rising this year.

Glover will never again reach the heights of his 2009 U.S. Open win, but he’s still got enough game to win a standard event under the right conditions. Expect a solid performance from him at the Wells Fargo Championship.
