Glover Records Third Hole in One on PGA Tour

April 2, 2010

Clemson, SC – Former Clemson All-American Lucas Glover recorded his third career hole-in-one in a PGA Tour event on Friday at the Shell Houston Open. Glover aced the par three 16th hole, his seventh hole of the day, from 206 yards with a six iron. It was the first hole in one by any golfer at the Shell Houston Open in five years.

Glover also recorded a hole-in-one at the Western Open at Cog Hill outside Chicago in 2004, and at the 2006 Mercedes Championship in Hawaii. That ace at the Mercedes won Glover a new Mercedes Benz.

Glover finished Friday with a four under par 68 to move into contention at the Houston Open. He stands in 20th position with a 141 total after two rounds.

Glover, who was playing with former Clemson teammate D.J. Trahan on Friday, was not the only Tiger who had a “Good Friday”. Trahan shot a six-under par 66 thanks to seven birdies and a bogey. That tied for the best round of the day by any player in the tournament and it allowed Trahan to make the cut after an opening round 78.

Glover was not the only golfer with ties to Clemson who made a hole in one on Friday. Corbin Mills, a red-shirt freshman on the Clemson golf team made a hole-in-one on the 165-yard par three fourth-hole at Forest Hills Golf Club in Augusta, GA. It was his first swing of the day and took place during a practice round for the Augusta State Invitational, which begins on Saturday.
