Up a river without a driver

JERSEY CITY, N.J. – Lucas Glover, to borrow a hockey phrase, played shorthanded for much of the day.
Let me explain. Teeing off at 8:21 a.m., Glover played his first nine holes on Friday after starting at No. 10 without his Nike driver. Glover cracked the club on the driving range Thursday evening following his round. FedEx delivered a replacement driver to Liberty National and the club made it in Glover’s bag by the time he reached the third hole, his 12th hole of the day.
He stepped up with the big stick and promptly drilled one 326 yards, his longest drive of the day. Without a driver for his first 11 holes, Glover’s driving average for Round 2 was 265.3 yards, compared to 277.2 yards during Round 1. Glover posted 81 (10 over) today and missed the cut.
