Glover’s beard has its own T-shirt

FORT WORTH, Texas – Dallas residents J. P. Hossley and Jim Askew are big fans of Lucas Glover. And his beard.

So Hossley made three T-shirts with an image of Glover’s beard on the front and the “Fear The Beard” slogan on the back and brought them to Thursday’s first round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Askew wore one of the shirts, and Hossley gave away the other two to friends.

They didn’t make the shirts to sell. They’re just doing it for fun and because they like Glover’s mountain-man look, which he sported earlier this month when he won the Wells Fargo Championship.

“How many PGA TOUR beards do you see out here,” Askew asked as he and Hossley watched Glover practice bunker shots prior to teeing off at 1:24 p.m. ET. “It’s different.”

“It’s the first beard of our generation,” Hossley joked.

Asked whether they had also seen Hunter Mahan’s beard – Mahan and Glover are in the same threesome with Paul Goydos for the first two rounds – Askew said yes but just shook his head.

“That’s a very shorn beard,” he said. “Lucas has a real beard.”

“It’s a man’s beard,” Hossley added.

With Glover’s beard also having its own Facebook page ( click here ), this thing now seems to have a life of its own.
