Lucas Glover will join an elite group of top players in the game in 2024, as he secures his spot in the PGA Tour's prestigious elevated events. Glover had a bad opinion of elevated events before securing a spot for them. However, even though many expected Glover to change his mind now, he still stands firmly behind his words.

“No, still think they’re terrible.

Glad I’m in them, but it’s terrible. I said that when I wasn’t in them”. - Glover said.

No-cut events

Introducing no-cut events caused a large number of reactions from fans and golfers, who are not quite satisfied with what is being done.

Glover doesn't understand why the divide is being made. During the announcement, he emphasized that they are terrible, and he still stands by his words. Glover is a man who does not change his mind easily. “I don’t think it needs to be divided like it is.

I mean, it’s basically two tours, and there’s no reason those fields shouldn’t be bigger. The ironic one to me is the Players at 144 guys is the signature event of the PGA Tour with a cut and 144 guys. So yeah, I thought they were terrible when they announced them, I think they are terrible now”.

Many believed that Glover could earn one of the wildcards and secure his place on the Ryder Cup team. However, that did not materialize. Glover firmly believes that his performance has been enough to secure a spot on the team.

As a great golfer, he continues to strive for excellence on the course and hopes for a future opportunity to represent his country in the Ryder Cup “I felt I had done enough then. You know, maybe not over two years, right? Keegan [Bradley], sure had, in my opinion.

But according to the reason they have six picks I did enough”. - he concluded. Source: Golfmonthy
