Lucas Glover's wife, Krista Glover, has been arrested by police in Florida after allegedly attacking the golfer and his mother after the 2009 US Open victor failed to make the cut at The Players Championship.
He told police that his wife berates him "every time he plays poorly in a tournament", calling him a "loser" and a "p***y", according to a police report.
According to the incident report, Lucas Glover tried to ensure that deputies wouldn't arrest his wife of six years by changing his witness statement. While escorting her to a patrol vehicle, she became combative and tried to separate herself from the deputy, the arrest report said.
Glover confirmed on Twitter there was an altercation, but added: "Everyone is fine". While Lucas failed to qualify for the 2018 Players Championship, which was the catalyst for the alleged domestic violence between him and Krista, he does have a trio of wins under his belt.
A police report filed on the case stated Glover and his wife were engaged in a dispute when his mother became involved.More news: The Honor 10 is here - and it's a £399 smartphone stunner
"Regrettably, although Krista was charged, we are comfortable that the judicial system is able to address what actually happened", the statement said in part. "We than you for respecting our privacy as we work through this unfortunate situation".
And to complete the trifecta of abominable behavior, Krista made a scene when authorities tried to get her into the police auto. She has a May 31 court date (per the AP) on the two charges, both misdemeanors.
The world's 104th-ranked golfer, Glover was one of nine players to be eliminated from The Players under the "made cut, did not finish" designation after 54 holes, following a 6-over-par 78 on Saturday that left him at 1 over for the tournament.
She was released the next day after posting a $2,500 bond.
Lucas Glover nearly got a hole in one...in his face. "Wait till I talk with the judge, you will be f.ing fired over this".
"We are aware of the situation and Lucas informed us of his statement, which has since been posted to his Twitter account". He's also played in the Presidents Cup twice.
