Lucas Glover's Wife Arrested For Domestic Abuse After Playing Poorly

Golfweek - Krista Glover, wife of PGA Tour pro Lucas Glover, was arrested in Ponte Vedra, Fla., during the Players Championship for domestic violence and resisting arrest, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.

Krista Glover, 36, “forcefully attacked” and injured Lucas Glover inside a rented home in Ponte Vedra Saturday night, a police report obtained by the Daily Mail says. Both Lucas Glover and his mother had visible injuries after she intervened to stop the altercation.

Glover called the “argument” a “private matter” on Twitter Tuesday:

Lucas, the report says, told deputies his wife gets violent every time he doesn’t play well in a major PGA tournament. The 2009 U.S. Open champion, Glover shot a 78 Saturday in the third round of the Players. He was listed as MDF and did not play in the final round Sunday.

Glover said his wife had been drinking during the day. She verbally abused Glover and peppered him with profane insults in front of their young children after his round on Saturday, the report says.

Given the visible injuries on Lucas Glover, his mother, and the verbal statements made, police said they had probable cause to make the arrest.

As if this game wasn't hard enough. Can you imagine coming home after not playing so well and arriving to that? Get out now while you can Lucas. That's the look of a crazed woman. I wasn't really a big fan of Glover, but knowing he has to come home to a crazed wife makes me feel for him.
