A friend in need


BETHESDA, Md. – Unlike some who collect Grand Slam glory and become instant experts on whatever the top du jour is, Lucas Glover has little interest in tackling the day’s hot-button issues.

He will, however, help a friend. Late last year Glover convinced former Clemson teammate Charles Warren to put away the mid-length putter and his cross-handed grip he’d been using for a conventional-length model and a regular grip.

“I’m gonna need some help,” Warren told Glover at the time. After just two weeks of encouragement and advice Warren was hooked.

Flash forward eight months. On Friday at Congressional Warren blitzed to a front-nine 30 to move onto the leaderboard thanks to four one-putts.

A friend indeed.
