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 knew Ben would cover this before I even logged on. Ben, how did you get on our website?
    Can we stick with golf?

      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.

        100% correct.

        She needs to be dealt with.

WATCH: Tiger Woods on Facebook Live with Bridgestone Golf

Published

on

Tiger Woods just appeared in a Bridgestone Golf Facebook Live video. While the audio isn’t the greatest (sounds like there’s some mowers rolling by), we’ve got to pass it along.

Check out the video below.

Woods initially discusses his wedges, before moving on to sharing some insights about how he hits his patented stinger–covering the ball, starting it farther right, and keeping his follow through short.

On his ball, the Bridgestone Tour B XS, which he presents as a softer ball well-suited to his swing, Woods says

“I need spin. I don’t spin the ball a lot. My swing has never produced a lot of spin. I’ve always been able to take spin off the golf ball–I grew up in an era where we played balata. What separated a lot of guys was the ability to take spin off the golf ball…to keep it below the tree line. There was a lot more movement in the golf ball.”

“My swing has naturally evolved. I’ve had different swings throughout the years, but each swing didn’t spin the ball a lot. So, when I get up to my long irons with a harder ball that most people would launch…I don’t. It falls out of the sky because it has so little spin.”

Woods mentioned that he hasn’t played Shinnecock since the course’s pre-U.S. Open makeover, but that he expects the course will be particularly difficult: an old-school U.S. Open with minimal graduated rough where it will be difficult to shoot under par.

Responding to comments, Woods sings Hazeltine’s praises and mentions he’d love to be able to wear shorts during PGA Tour events

“We play some of the hottest places on the planets and it would be nice to wear shorts…even with my little chicken legs,” Woods says.

Woods tells amateurs looking for more spin around the greens that they need a soft golf ball, mentioning that solid contact, maintaining loft, and allowing to club to do its job are key. Woods mentions that he has “a couple extra shots around the greens” thanks to the softness of his golf ball.”

We’ll next see the 14-time major champion in action at next week’s Memorial Tournament (which he discusses to wrap up the video).

GolfWRX is on the ground at Marvin Leonard’s famed pet project, Colonial Country Club, peeking into players bags and taking in the action on the driving range.

While you’ll want to take a trip through the buffet line, we’ve made you a plate of some of the tastiest morsels.

Absolutely savage new putter cover for Jon “Rahmbo” Rahm. Just killer.

Prettier than a new penny.

Spotted: Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI

Everything here is excellent. Just excellent.

More like Garsen Murray. Am I right?

If you were Aaron Wise standing over the winning putt at last week’s Byron Nelson, this is what it’d have looked like (of course, you’d have had a ball and the putter would be soled on the green, but you get the point…)

Abraham Ancer’s new Artisan wedges are simply incredible… All of this: Artisan star stellar stuff.

Rickie Fowler has gone grape.

You can’t fool me. You’re not Adam Hadwin, you’re a golf bag.

Is Patrick Cantlay considering a switch to a Cameron Napa?
