KAPALUA, Hawaii -- Lucas Glover has withdrawn from the Hyundai Tournament of Championship after injuring his knee in a paddleboard accident over the weekend. There are now 27 players in the winners-only event.
“My foot caught on the edge of the board,” Glover told the Associated Press on Thursday. “My body went one way and my knee went the other. I knew immediately I had done a little something. I just wasn’t sure how bad.”
Glover had hoped to play in Thursday’s pro-am but when he went to the range he realized he couldn’t transfer his weight from the right side. He said he could have played “if you put a gun to my head,” but decided to rest instead in hopes of competing in the event.
Glover, who had difficulty even getting in his car, was scheduled to tee off at 11:35 a.m. local (4:35 p.m. ET) with Chris Kirk. He will not be replaced in the field and will share unofficial last-place money Fredrik Jacobson, Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker.
