    Glover had a successful college career at Clemson University where he was a two time All-American. He was part of the United States team for the 2001 Walker Cup. After graduating, Glover turned pro in 2001. He began playing on the Nationwide Tour. He won a PGA Tour card after the 2003 season by finishing 16th in the Nationwide Tour standings. He won his first Tour title at the Gila River Classic at Wild Horse Pass Resort and had a further five top 10s that season.

    Glover played 30 times in his rookie season, making the cut on 17 occassions. He had two top 10s with his bets result coming at the Funai Classic at the Walt Disney World Resort. He would finish his rookie season 134th on the money list and therefore, he had to go to Q School to retain his card. He claimed his first PGA Tour win the following season at the Funai Classic at the Walt Disney World Resort by a single stroke over Tom Pernice Jr. It looked to be heading for a play-off at best until Glover holed a 35 yard bunker shot on the last hole to claim victory. This was one of seven top 10s that season on his way to ending the year 30thon the money list.

    Glover’s second PGA Tour win was a big one. It came at the 2009 US Open which was played at the Bethpage Black Course. A second round of 64 helped him claim victory by two strokes from Phil Mickelson, David Duval and Ricky Barnes. He would have 12 top 25 finishes that season and ended the year a career best 9th on the money list. His third and most recent PGA Tour win came at the Wells Fargo Championship in 2011 after he defeated Jonathan Byrd in a play-off. It was his only top 10 of the year and Glover has struggled with his game since, registering only two top 10s in the last four seasons.
