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.

      Spot on comment. She’s a drunkard and an unfit 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.

      • Jack Nicholas

        100% correct.

        She needs to be dealt with.

It’s the Ardmore! Woods begins Quicken Loans National with TaylorMade putter in the bag

Published

on

If you had a bet going with your buddies that there was no way Tiger Woods would depart from his beloved 13 major-winning Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS this week, you lose.

Woods started the first round of the Quicken Loans National with the TaylorMade Ardmore 3 he has been practicing all week with at TPC Potomac.

Adam Schupak spotted Woods’ caddie, Joe LaCava, on the way to the first tee for Woods’ 1:20 ET start time with the camo TaylorMade putter cover in the bag (not surprisingly, the TaylorMade Ardmore 3 was beneath the cover).

Woods has struggled with the putter this season, as we’re all well aware, particularly since the Memorial. No. 89 on Tour in strokes gained: putting, the 14-time major champion knew he had to do something.

“I’m trying to find something that I can feel again, like the swing of the putter, getting my body in the right positions and seeing the lines again,” Woods said. “You know, it’s just one of those things, once I start to get the ball rolling on my lines, then I’ll be back to putting like I was. I just have not been rolling it on my lines. And then on top of that, when they don’t roll on lines, then I have a hard time seeing my lines and it’s a vicious cycle. And I’m just trying to get out of that cycle.”

Woods reportedly tried a number of TaylorMade putters in the Bahamas last week, arriving (as far as we know) at the Quicken Loans National with just the Ardmore and his Newport to choose between.

He has made his choice for the first round. We’ll see how it pans out and whether Woods remains a mallet man all week.

5 things we learned on Sunday of the 2018 U.S. Open

Published

on

Opportunity knocked for so many golfers, yet it was the 2017 champion who seized the moment when it was his. Brooks Koepka fired his second sub-par round of the week on Sunday to separate from playing partner Dustin Johnson, and enter the pantheon of multiple major champions. He became the 7th player to defend his title, joining old-school legends like Willie Anderson and John McDermott, mid-century icons like Ralph Guldahl and Ben Hogan, and the last man to accomplish the feat, Curtis Strange. With that introduction, let’s move to the main event, the 5 things we learned on Sunday at Shinnecock Hills.

5) The USGA gave golf a chance

True to its word, the USGA pulled out all the stops in the wee hours of Sunday morn. The course set-up team ensured that enough water was distributed to putting surfaces, that worthy shots would not be punished. Hole locations were assessed and confirmed, also ensuring that multiple opportunities for success were available. As a result, 15 golfers turned in scores under par of 70, highlighted by Tommy Fleetwood’s 7-under stunner. Although many fans, writers and players were quick to assault the organizers for losing control of the course, the USGA reminded us that it always had control of the conditions at Shinny, and that its only mistake was to soar too close to the sun.

4) Captain America ran out of gas

If Patrick Reed had been able to sign his card on the 9th tee, when he stood 5-under on the day and 1-over for the tournament, he would be in a playoff with the eventual champion as I type. Unfortunate for this year’s Masters champion was that 10 holes remained. Reed promptly bogeyed the 9th, added 3 more bogeys on the inward half, and summoned just one birdie toward the end. His fourth-place finish was his best in a U.S. Open, but knowing that victory was in the cards will sting for a while.

3) DJ and Finau gave it a run

Where to begin? How about this: DJ had four bogeys on Sunday. He totaled that many on Thursday-Friday combined. He had birdies, too, but couldn’t find the game that possessed him over the opening 36 holes. Oddly enough, this type of experience won’t be a setback for the 2016 champion. After all, he came back from a career-killer in 2015, when he 3-whacked his way out of a playoff with Jordan Spieth at Chambers Bay. As for Milton Pouhau Finau, aka Tony, the Utah native had never before been in the final group on any day of a major professional championship. He acquitted himself well, standing even on the day and 3-over for T2 at the 18th tee. Knowing that he needed eagle for a playoff might have taken the final winds from his sails, and he limped home with double bogey and solo third. Looking ahead to the final August playing of the PGA Championship, Bellerive near St. Louis might just be his type of course.

2) Tom Terrific nearly made his own U.S. Open history

I’ll write this cautiously, as I’m certain I would have intimated in the 1980s and 90s that Colin Montgomerie and Lee Westwood would have been major champions by now. Tommy Fleetwood ought to win one of these things soon. His record-tying 63 was a short putt away from a record-breaking 62. Eight birdies against a single bogey was the stuff of legend, and if only he had trusted that final putt a bit higher on the break … that’s not fair. Fleetwood right now is the fellow to watch at Carnoustie next month. Bet a few quid or bob or whatever on the Southport native, as he should contend for the title.

1) Brooks cooks up a winning broth

It’s easy to look back and see all the great shots that the defending champion hit over the four days of the 2018 U.S. Open, shots that would win him his second consecutive trophy. Remember that 60-feet bomb to save par on Saturday? Shades of Costantino Rocca. How about the approach shots to within mere feet that earned him 5 birdies on Sunday, including a competition-killer on 16? Koepka was the guy we thought Dustin Johnson would be. Perhaps it was the time off for wrist rehabilitation early this season that gave him the burning desire to win. Out for nearly 4 months, Koepka had plenty of time to ponder what he achieved last June in Wisconsin, and what might lay ahead for him. The begged question is, does the most recent, two-time major winner have the game to acquire more of the game’s cherished trophies?

Phil Mickelson, who has two top-5 finishes at Shinnecock Hills, will seek to fill out his career Grand Slam with a win this week. Also, it’s Tiger Woods’ 10-year anniversary of winning the legendary 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines — that was his most recent major championship victory.

Also in the field are headliners Dustin Johnson (now ranked No. 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings), Justin Thomas (No. 2), Justin Rose (No. 3), Jon Rahm (No. 4) and Jordan Spieth (No. 5).

Brooks Koepka (No. 9) is the defending champion; he won last year by four shots for his first and only major so far in his career.
