Lucas Glover will undergo surgery on his right knee Sept. 5 to repair a torn meniscus and could miss the remainder of the season.
Glover first injured the knee while paddle boarding in Hawaii the week of the season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions. He withdrew from the tournament and missed the next two months.
Last week in Greensboro, Glover was forced to withdraw again midway through the third round because of pain in his knee.
Glover, who missed the FedExCup playoffs for the first time in his career, could be back for the season-ending Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, which he won in 2005, though it’s more likely he would skip the event and wait until 2013 to return.
In 16 starts this year, Glover made just six cuts. His best finish was a tie for 46th at the Memorial tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance.
