Glover injures knee; 50-50 to start

First, Geoff Ogilvy. Now, Lucas Glover. The Hyundai Tournament of Champions has lost one of its marquee players for the second straight year due to a freak aquatic accident.

Glover Glover sprained a ligament in his right knee over the weekend while paddleboarding in Hawaii. Glover, who won the Wells Fargo Championship last May, had to withdraw from Thursday's pro-am and told the Associated Press he was 50-50 at teeing it up on Friday in the first round of the PGA TOUR’s season opener.

Glover is an experienced paddleboarder. He said his foot caught on the board as he took a tumble and his body opted to go in a different direction. The disconnect had heavy consequences to the knee.

A year ago, Ogilvy, the two-time defending champion at Kapalua, sliced his finger on a coral reef prior to the start of the tournament. He had to withdraw and eventually missed the first month of the season.
