GLOVER GRABS LEAD

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

LU­CAS GLOVER, the 2009 US Open cham­pion who hasn’t won a ti­tle in five years, fired yes­ter­day a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive six-un­der 65 to seize a one-stroke lead en­ter­ing the fi­nal round of the US PGA Shriners Hos­pi­tals for Chil­dren Open. The 36-year-old Amer­i­can, who has not won since tak­ing the 2011 Quail Hol­low crown, led on 15-un­der 198 af­ter 54 holes with Aus­tralia’s Rod Pam­pling and Amer­i­can Brooks Koepka shar­ing sec­ond on 199. Glover sank a 17-foot birdie putt on the open­ing hole, took his lone bo­gey at the third af­ter find­ing a fair­way bunker, then sank a 43-foot birdie putt at the par-3 eighth that sparked the rest of his round. “I made a nice one. It was great to see that go in,” Glover said. “I made that long one and ev­ery­thing started to flow. I got the speed right on that long one. I got a lit­tle more ag­gres­sive and kept that go­ing.”
