Lucas Glover had never missed a tee time in his PGA Tour career.
That changed Thursday morning.
Glover withdrew before his 8:26 a.m. local tee time at the 2024 WM Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale. As Golf Channel’s Rex Hoggard reports, it was a simple misunderstanding.
“I just mid-read my text messages [that listed my tee time],” Glover told Golf Channel. “I’m kicking myself but laughing at myself at the same time.”
A PGA Tour official called Glover, who was in his hotel room, letting him know there was a minute until his tee time. That’s when he withdrew.
Ryo Hisatsune was the first alternate and got into the field with Glover withdrawing. The six-time PGA Tour winner finished T-58 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am last week.
