I’m a bit surprised to see Lucas Glover playing back-to-back weeks in the fall when, frankly, he doesn’t have to. He already raked in a boatload of cash with back-to-back wins late in the summer to go with several other high finishes.
But, on the other hand, who knows how long the 43-year-old Glover can keep lightning in a bottle? Might as well try to cash in while you can at a couple of resort courses in Mexico and Bermuda.
Last week, the Clemson grad made the cut at the World Wide Technology Championship where he posted T-59th. Glover carded three rounds in the 60s but was unable to go crazy low to contend at El Cardonal.
He was shaking off some rust making his first start of the fall season. We last saw him compete at the Tour Championship where he took T-18th.
He is making his second appearance at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship.
Last year, Glover posted 66-67-78-72. A strong start fizzled as he settled for T-63rd.
Glover is a good ball striker who might be able to hang in there in the wind this week better than others. He ranks 15th on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Approach (.566 per round) and is 29th in SG: Off-the-Tee (.787).
Putting isn’t his strong suit, but it’s been at least passable with the broomstick during his resurgence. Plus, if a southern boy like him is going to feel comfortable on any type of surface, it’s Bermuda.
