ORLANDO, Fla. – Lucas Glover hasn’t missed a cut on the PGA Tour since last October and he’s currently perched 28th on the FedEx Cup points list.

The even better news for the 37-year-old is that he continues to trend in the right direction, as evidenced by the opening 68 on Thursday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational that left him tied for third place.

There were signs last week that his form was continuing to improve on his way to a tie for 18th at the Valspar Championship, but Glover knows the real challenge awaits this weekend.

“It clicked Thursday, Friday, Saturday last week. Sunday was a struggle,” said Glover, who closed with a 73 at Innisbrook.

It’s been a familiar trend this season, with just two of his final rounds under par for a 71.25 scoring average on Sunday, but he can take confidence from his start at Bay Hill that included four birdies over his final six holes.

“I had a good session yesterday and a good warm-up today and I had a bunch of good numbers out there and could hit some full shots and it felt good, felt loose, and everything was clicking,” Glover said.
