Lucas Glover Personal Notes
Avid Clemson Tiger sports fan.
An avid reader, particularly mysteries and thrillers. Read four books during the week of his rainy 2009 U.S. Open victory.
Credits his grandfather, Dick Hendley, for giving him his start in golf. Grandfather gave him a cut-down club when Lucas was 3 and first took him to the Masters at age 6. Hendley was a standout in football and baseball at Clemson, where he is a Hall of Fame member and played one season (1951) with the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers. Lucas was inducted into the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame in the fall 2007.
Grew a beard in the Fall of 2010, which took on a life of its own. Showcased the thick growth on TOUR in 2011, receiving such light-hearted comments as "Mountain Man," "Grizzly Adams," and "woolly mammoth." CBS analyst David Feherty referred to the look as something that belongs on "America's Deadliest Catch." Glover, himself, joked about the facial hair, claiming he did it to have something to clean his clubs with.
