WATCH: PGA Tour pro misses putt from 16 (!) inches at Sony Open

Lucas Glover was one of the great stories of the 2022-2023 PGA Tour campaign. 

The veteran shocked us all by winning back-to-back events during the final stages of the season, putting himself firmly in the frame for an unlikely Ryder Cup captain's pick.

It just seemed like he would never, ever miss. 

Glover uses a L.A.B. Golf putter which several notable Tour pros have turned to in recent weeks and months.
