Lucas Glover

Glover was ranked only 71st in the world and had never made the cut at the US Open when he came through qualifying to play in 2009 at the feared Bethpage Black. 

Glover was ranked only 71st in the world and had never made the cut at the US Open when he came through qualifying to play in 2009 at the feared Bethpage Black. 

He scored a second-round 64 (only one outside the major record at the time) and went on to beat Phil Mickelson, David Duval and Ricky Barnes by two.

A second successive Presidents Cup cap followed and two years later he had another PGA Tour success at the Wells Fargo Championship.

But then the former Walker Cup player fell from 15th in the world to 634th in 2015. He has battled his way back since then and played his first Open for six years at Royal Portrush in 2019, finishing joint-20th.

Also appeared in 2021 at Royal St George's, the course where he shared the halfway lead with eventual winner Darren Clarke 10 years earlier.

Won back-to-back titles on the PGA Tour in August, taking his total to six, and made it all the way through the FedEx Cup play-off series to the Tour Championship to guarantee another Open start at Royal Troon.
