Published

on

Lucas Glover’s wife, Krista, 36, was arrested after allegedly attacking Glover and his mother after he missed the 54-hole cut at The Players Championship, Saturday.

Krista Glover was released on $2,500 bail after spending the night in St. John’s County Jail. She’s slated for a May 31 court date on misdemeanor charges of domestic violence battery and resisting arrest without violence.

Per the officer’s report, following Glover’s third-round 78 and MDF at Sawgrass, the Glovers had an altercation, which Lucas’ mother, Hershey, attempted to stop. At that point, Krista allegedly began attacking her husband’s mother. Hershey Glover reportedly had cuts and blood on her arms, as did Lucas.

Glover and his mother did not want to press charges, according to reports. Glover reported his wife had been drinking and that she frequently berates him about his poor play, calling him a “‘loser” and other names in front of the couple’s children. 

The three-time PGA Tour winner tweeted the following statement, Sunday.

Per the St. John’s County Sheriff’s Department, full details are available via the arrest report below.

    I think Krista is playing the long con:

    * Act like a psycho
    * Get divorce from millionaire husband
    * Profit

    I knew Ben would cover this before I even logged on. Ben, how did you get on our website?

      A bit harsh, but you’re right. He’s a writer who lives in nyc – not a golfer. These guys are just trying to get clicks so they can sell ads and keep this website going. Ben may not be Henry Longhurst, but what do you expect in 2018??

    His first wife was his high school/college sweetheart. This second wife sounds like a gold digger; I wonder if she was the cause of the first divorce?

    Golf is hard enough without a psycho trying to motivate you…Hope him and the kids settle it privately….sometimes you have to walk away.

      Her eyes say it all: she is psychotic. Lucas, get yourself and your kids out of there ASAP.

    Very sad situation for all involved. Hope for the best for him, his kids, and hopefully his wife will seek some professional help.

    Stop being such a p*ssy and show her the door. Then seek custody. She’s not fit to be a mother.

    If you don’t receive support from your spouse – specifically support for your career, efforts, difficulties – then what is the point?

    I suggest he could avoid paying her nearly as much if she is violent to him and his family.

    Gross.

    I got Lucas to sign a shirt at the Greenbrier Classic. He told me his signature would devalue the shirt. I thought that was pretty self-deprecating for a major champ. He was sitting slumped down with little confidence. Instead of his wife being a support system and putting the bread winner in a place to succeed it seems she just sabotaged his career. Pathetic. Get outta that relationship Lucas!

      He said the same thing to me too! He also wanted me to kick him in the nuts. Poor guy.

    As if the stress level of making a living on the golf course isn’t enough, you have to come home to this problem? Man… she needs major help and he should move on.

    Hopefully Lucas had a prenup with that Roastie. Guy is a major champion. Does not deserve any of that b.s. and belittling from a woman who’s value in the market is jack, sh*t, and all. Lucas, it’s time for an upgrade, get a younger QT that will worship you.

    According to the NY Post she calls him a loser and a p—y when he has a bad round. If he doesn’t press charges and follow this through she’s right.

    What’s unfortunate is that divorce will net him 1/2 of his worth….and that psychopath wife deserves nada….he’s in a lose lose situation…..oh well…there’s always the yips

      With his income dropping that will mean less money for her and the children. Maybe she’s only attempting to fatten up the divorce settlement by berating him for his poor performance. It must be tough trying to compete and your marriage is going on the rocks.

      Attacking him and his mother, calling him a loser, trying to embarrass him in public. Telltale signs that is wife is a narcissist. The only way to deal with a narcissist is to keep them as far away from you as possible. They cannot be helped, changed, improved, or cured.

        100% correct.

        She needs to be dealt with.

Patrick Reed airs out Jordan Spieth and Captain Jim Furyk following the 2018 Ryder Cup loss

Published

on

In an interview with Karen Crouse of The New York Times, Patrick Reed held zero punches about his displeasure with former Ryder Cup partner Jordan Spieth, Captain Jim Furyk, and the egos of the United States team.

First, a bit of back story. Patrick Reed — dubbed “Captain America” — played foursomes and fourballs with Jordan Spieth in both the 2014 and 2016 Ryder Cups, amassing a 4-1-2 record as partners in the two events.

But when it came to the 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National, Patrick Reed was paired with Tiger Woods in both fourball sessions (losing both), while Spieth played with Justin Thomas in fourballs and foursomes (Spieth/JT went 3-1). Reed sat the bench for both foursomes sessions.

According to Reed, the decision to split from Spieth was not his call, or the captain’s, but rather, due to Spieth’s wishes. Reed also took shots at Furyk for sitting him in both fourball matches.

Here’s what Reed had to say…

About Jordan Spieth

“The issue’s obviously with Jordan not wanting to play with me,” Reed said, according to the NYT. He added: “I don’t have any issue with Jordan. When it comes right down to it, I don’t care if I like the person I’m paired with or if the person likes me as long as it works and it sets up the team for success. He and I know how to make each other better. We know how to get the job done.”

In the post-Ryder Cup press conference with the entire team, the ex-partners were asked about the split, to which Spieth answered: “We were totally involved in every decision that was made… Jim allowed it to be a player-friendly environment.”

When asked about this moment in the interview by the NYT, Reed said, “I was looking at (Jordan Spieth) like I was about to light the room up like Phil in ’14,” in reference to Phil Mickelson calling out Captain Tom Watson in the 2014 post-Ryder Cup interview.

About Captain Furyk

“I thought he might go back with the groups that have worked in the past (after the first alternate-shot session).”

“For somebody as successful in the Ryder Cup as I am, I don’t think it’s smart to sit me twice.”

About the U.S. Team

“Every day, I saw ‘Leave your egos at the door,’” Reed said, of inspirational messages in the team room. “They (the Europeans) do that better than us.”
