Lucas Glover signs for Nike

As the 2007 season gets into swing, Nike Golf is showing all the signs of continuing its increasing success with the addition of new and talented stars to its Tour staff. Nike Golf is happy to announce that Lucas Glover is the newest member of Nike Golf's Tour Staff.   

In a multi-year agreement, Glover will represent Nike Golf in clubs, ball, footwear, glove, bag, headwear and accessories.  This new development follows Nike Golf's recent announcement that Anthony Kim and Paige MacKenzie also had joined the Tour Staff.  

“Lucas is an outstanding all-around athlete who has demonstrated impressive performance on the PGA Tour in a short period of time,” said Kel Devlin, global sports marketing director for Nike Golf.  “He's a long hitter, very strong, and we believe one of the most promising young athletes out there.  We are very excited that he has joined the Nike Golf family.”

“When I saw the success that Nike players were having with Nike products on Tour, it caught my attention and certainly peaked my interest,” said Glover.  “Because of my curiosity, I made a trip to Nike's Fort Worth facility to try out some products and was thoroughly impressed.  I was sold right there and then.”  

Glover joined the PGA Tour in 2004.  In only his 17th career Tour start, Glover collected his first top-10 finish at the Wachovia Championship with a tie for 10th.  In 2005, he captured his first PGA Tour title at the Funai Classic.  Last year, he finished in the top 10 nine times and ended the year by ranking 21st on the PGA Tour money list, a new career best.

Prior to joining the PGA Tour, Glover was a first-team All-American at Clemson, where he won three tournaments during his collegiate career.  He also was a three-time South Carolina Amateur Champion from 1998 - 2000.  In 2001, he participated on the U.S. Walker Cup Team.
