Glover suffering from stressed tendon


TURNBERRY, Scotland – U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover appeared to be favoring his left leg on his way to rounds of 72-77 and when asked about the limp late Friday he revealed he has been receiving treatment for a “stressed tendon.”

The injury, which is just above his ankle and could potentially develop into tendinitis, flared up at last week’s John Deere Classic, and Glover said it was the result of five consecutive weeks of tournament play.

Glover said he’d been receiving treatment on his leg everyday at Turnberry and expected to be fully recovered after two weeks off back home in Greenville, S.C., following the Open Championship.

Although he was reluctant to use the injury as an excuse for missing the cut, Glover did say the leg was bothering him.
