Lucas Glover Pockets Easiest $600K of His Young Life

LET ME SEE IF I have this right. You fly to Bermuda for two rounds of golf. If you beat three other guys, you fly home with 600,000 bones. The event has a fancy name—PGA Grand Slam of Golf—but still. Three guys. (Really, just two, because the other one flew the milk run from the Far East and was jet lagged into next week.)

Lucas Glover is your winner. The Clemson grad fired a 65-66 at Port Royal Golf Course to best Stewart Cink, Angel Cabrera and Y.E. Yang. I didn’t see a single shot.

OK, so Glover did have to win the U.S. Open to get into the foursome. And the other guys are also major winners. Still, it’s not a bad way to start your week.

Still Hungry?

If the PGA Grand Slam of Golf leaves you hungry for something more, there’s always the Denny’s Grand Slam Breakfast: buttermilk pancakes, eggs, bacon and sausage. (Two of each.) And you don’t have to be a major winner. It’s yours for under 10 bucks.

It would be interesting to see what kind of ratings this event drew. I didn't watch, primarily because I forgot about it. I'm not sure I would have watched had I remembered. This year's Major winners are great players but exciting to watch is not a term that could be used to describe them.
