Lucas “G’Lover” Glover is tied for first the the 2011 Open Championship at Royal St. George’s. While Lucas does have a 2011 PGA Tour victory, not many figured that he would be in contention after 2 rounds of links-style golf in England.
Here’s what Lucas said about playing with the 2009 US Open victory in his pocket;
I can always use ’09 U.S. Open and PGA in the back of my head whenever I get there in any tournament, not just majors. I do have that to fall on, but I’ve still got to hit the shots and still got to execute. But if we get down to the back nine Sunday and I’m where I want to be, I can fall back on the fact that I have executed and done the right things under that pressure.
All the best to Lucas. He’s becoming a fan favourite on Tour, especially because of his beard and southern charm. Tomorrow, Lucas will be playing with Darren Clarke in the final pairing of Round 3.
