  • The USGA "Back to Black" Challenge

    08 Feb 2010

    Lucas Glover outlasted the streaky Ricky Barnes and held off former major champions and sentimental favorites Phil Mickelson and David Duval to win the 2009 U.S. Open Championship at Bethpage State Park. With a gut-check final-round 73, highlighted by a 4-foot birdie putt on the 70th hole of the championship that separated him from his pursuers, Glover got in the clubhouse at this public golf shrine in 4-under-par 276. That was two shots better than the aforementioned trio and gave Glover, 29, his second professional victory.
