Clemson, SC-Former Clemson All-American Lucas Glover will compete in the British Open at Royal Liverpool in Hoylake, England this weekend.
Glover is just the third golfer with ties to Clemson to play in the British Open, the first to do it as a professional.

Glover, an All-American at Clemson in 1999-00-01, will start his play on Thursday at 12:58 PM local time and is paired with Peter
Lonard and Graeme McDowell. The same group will start play on
Friday at 7:47 PM in England.

This is the first British Open played at Royal Liverpool since 1967 when Roberto de Vicenzo won the championship. The course is a par 72 that is played at 7,258 yards.

The only other two golfers with ties to Clemson to play in the British Open are Chris Patton and Michael Hoey. Patton played in the 1990 British Open at St. Andrews and missed the cut after shooting rounds of 74-75. Patton qualified by winning the 1989 US Amateur. Hoey qualified for the 2001 British Open by winning the
2001 British Amateur. Hoey played at Royal Latham & St. Annes and also missed the cut with an identical 149 total.

Glover is currently 23rd on the PGA Tour money list with over
$1.6 million in earnings. He is also 10th on the Ryder Cup points list for the United States team.
