Poor Lucas Glover

What do you think of Lucas Glover's situation? Sounds dreadful. Did he really marry a hideous gold-digger or is there more to it? His side of the tale sounds credible enough, but it seems hard to believe that his wife could be that horrible. If she is, it is hard to believe that he married her and had two kids before he realized his error. The police report is online and they took his wife in cuffs to jail and was out on $2,500 bail. Sounds like she might have resisted arrest. Let's hope this gets resolved satisfactorily and that the children are not harmed by all of this craziness. I hope that he can find some peace and get back to some sort of normalcy.

Totally feel for him.....obviously we do not know the entire situation, but if the allegations are true about the verbal and physical abuse post-round, this woman has serious problems.....and with two young kids, it is just not as easy as walking away

My understanding is that he made the cut, but that he then did not play that well on Saturday, which led to the altercation with the wife. He then did not play on Sunday.

From a an Australian news source:

She is certainly a classy lady. Not.

Police reports uncovered by Daily Mail say Glover's wife Krista, 36, was arrested and charged with domestic battery and resisting arrest after he called emergency services, "tired" of repeated altercations. 

Glover's wife reportedly attacked the PGA Tour golfer's mother Hershey after an argument erupted following his 78 at TPC Sawgrass on Saturday, which led to Lucas not playing the final round. Krista too claimed she was attacked by her mother-in-law. Glover, the 2011 Wells Fargo Champion, was listed as a "victim" in the police report. 

 

According to St. Johns County Sheriff's Department's official report, the 2009 US Open champion told deputies his wife gets angry when he plays badly, and after drinking all day she had called him a "loser" and "p----" in an argument in front of their family, including two young children and Glover's mother at a home they were renting during the tournament.

I believe The Players had a second cut after 54 holes where Glover dropped out. He was -4 after day one, -5 after day two, then made two birdies and eight bogeys on day three and went MDF along with eight other players. 

His wife sounds lile a piece of work, but as usual we only know some sides of the story.

I'm thinking she may have a substance abuse problem, which is why he is standing by her. It is sad and I hope they get help.

Quote

After officers made the decision to arrest Krista Glover, she “proceeded to wrap her legs and feet around the door and frame of the car preventing” officers from placing her in the back of the patrol car. Once inside, she damaged the door by “forcefully kicking” it.

This woman needs some help.

I feel for the guy. Playing pro golf is pretty stressful enough. While it sounds funny on the surface, with the wife going nuts, the Mom there defending her son, the children screaming, it's definitely not. To have this bitch waiting at home ready to literally tear into him if he doesn't play well, can't be good for anyone, especially the children. The guy won the US Open, for god's sake, so for this lady is it "what have you done for me lately"? Or maybe Glover's got other issues? Who knows. So I suspect there's probably a lot more to this than what's on the surface, all of which is none of our business.

Hope those kids become good athletes, momma don't take well to losers! 😬 I am sure there nothing like laying an egg in the third round of the Players and then coming home to a verbal assault from the missus.

So sad.  I hope he realizes what his potential could be with a partner who was actually supportive.  Her eyes in the booking photo make me think there's more to it than booze, but I'm no expert.  What really struck me was the resemblance to another absolutely obnoxious person ...

Didn't he have some other issues with a previous wife? Or it might have been something to do with his family?

    • Ask yourself why you play.  For me, I play for a bunch of reasons: I like being outdoors, in beautiful spaces; I like spending peaceful time with my son; I enjoy the challenge of the game (even though I am still very much a beginner); I enjoy the feeling of hitting good shots (they do happen sometimes), and playing a good hole; I enjoy the discipline of persevering with a very challenging thing, and staying mindful, and trying to keep on top of the frustration.  For all these reasons, whether I play or not is not related to my score.  I broke 100 two or three times earlier in the summer, but this week I've been playing as badly as I've played since I started, but the reasons I play are still met by going and playing, so I won't quit. Sounds to me like your enjoyment is closely tied to your score and (if I may be so bold) you ego.  You don't like the feeling of having gone backwards, and you're not scoring well.  If those are the reasons you play (you like scoring well, and you like feeling proud / identifying as a single digit handicap golfer), then unless you're prepared to work through the reasons for your poor scoring, or reframe your experience of the game, you probably should go and do something else.
    • Thanks everyone. I really appreciate the advice. Let me clear up one though - I'm only 39 years old.  That seems to make quitting even more valuable to me because I should theoretically get decades of enjoying not golfing. 🙂 
    • In august, i bought a Datrek Super Lite Stand Bag on line from Global Golf. Sunday, while playing, The strap on the golf cart came loose and the bag and clubs fell off. One of the stand legs snapped off. Monday, I contacted Dynamic Brands, which is the parent company of Datrek. They also own Bag Boy, Burton, and a couple other makers of bags, carts, etc., to see if they had replacement parts available. The lady asked what happened, and how old the bag was, and said they would handle it under warranty. She sent me an e mail with the required information- proof of purchase, serial # and pictures of the bag., and said it would take a couple of days to process.. i sent them  the required info, and at about 4:30 PM, i received another email saying that they were sending me a warranty replacement. No questions asked. I was impressed with the promptness and courtesy with which his situation was handled, since i may get my new bag in time to use it in the club championship this weekend. No muss, No fuss.
    • I'm on an alternating cycle of couldn't hit the ball much better one day to couldn't hit it much worse the next. Last week shot a 43 on 9 holes, by far my best 9 this year. I don't think I could have hit the ball much better, driver or irons. Lost a few shots around the green and a cpl 3 putts, but 43 is a terrific 9 for me.    Literally the next day, went to play 9 somewhere else, and it was like my first time out. Fat shots, topping it, driver was wildly erratic. Nothing went right. In fact I ended up quitting on the 5th hole I was so frustrated. Nevermind Id lost 10 balls off the tee.  I hate golf.  But I'll probably play later today.
