Lucas Glover Wins 2009 U.S. Open -Bethpage Black - w/ Video

It maybe wasn't the prettiest final rounds of a Major but Lucas Glover made the putts when he needed to and played some smart golf in closing with a final round 73 and a two stroke victory over Phil, Duval and Ricky Barnes. It made for some great TV as there was a motley bunch of diverse golfers in the hunt and at any given point golfers were in and out of contention.

A few guys came over and watched the final hours of the golf, it was easy for them to make up excuses. To get away from making wedding invitations, chores around the house and general work. Hell this was the U.S. Open and it was a Monday finish what more excuses do you need. Phil Mickelson, David Duval, Ricky Barnes made it exciting but Lucas Glover finished it off with the pressure of having never been in wining a Major before and looked steady right to the end. Glover now moves up the World Rankings from 71st to 18th. I had a feeling Glover might do well this week as he had good stats as far as Total Driving(#1) goes I felt the only thing that might hurt him was he has had no success be before at a U.S. Open. He proved to many he was worthy Monday, congrats.
