As a reminder, Glover achieved a playoff victory against Patrick Cantlay at FedEx. It's a huge tailwind for him and a reminder of how much quality he really possesses. “If you would have told me this three months ago, I'd tell you you're crazy.

But at the same time, if you asked me legitimately did I think I was capable, I'd say yes, even then. It's just one of those sad ways athletes are wired. We always believe in ourselves no matter how bad it is. I never gave that up, but in the middle of May, it was hard to go to the range some days and hard to work. But we pushed through and did it anyway”.
