From the “Only a professional golfer could injure himself in a paddleboat” files: Lucas Glover suffered a sprained right knee in a paddleboat mishap while enjoying some R&R in Maui, forcing him to withdraw from the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Thursday. Although the injury wasn’t serious, his status for the Sony Open next week is uncertain. He’s currently still on the list of confirmed players in the field for the Sony, so we’ll learn more in the coming week.
While Glover was floundering around in a paddleboat in the
Pacific Ocean, Englishman Paul Casey was doing his best Sonny Bono impersonation in Colorado, albeit on a snowboard instead of skis. Casey dislocated his right shoulder during an accident while snowboarding in Colorado, forcing him to miss the first two months of the golf season. Although surgery isn’t required, it will require him to miss the European Tour’s Middle East swing, and puts him behind the 8-ball in trying to earn enough points to qualify for this year’s Ryder Cup team.
