In 1995, Lucas Glover of Greenville, South Carolina, won his third AJGA event at the 16th Polo Ralph Lauren Junior Golf Classic. It was his first win in the 15-18 division.

Glover was tied for first with Matt Kuchar of Lake Mary, Florida, heading into the final round. He pulled ahead right off the bat, taking a six stroke lead through No. 8. When he sank his final putt, he secured his title at 5-under-par 211. A four stroke difference separated him and runner up, Kevin Mock of Tampa, Florida.

Glover continued to impress during his time with the AJGA, ending his junior career with four wins and 16 top-10 finishes. He returned to the 1996 Polo Ralph Lauren Junior Golf Classic to defend his title, but finished T18 with a score of 10-over-par 226. Other notable AJGA appearances include the 1994 Marriott at Sawgrass First Coast Junior Classic and the 1997 Taylor Made Woodlands Junior Classic. He won both events.

Not only was Glover an AJGA champion, but also a three-time Rolex Junior All-American. He earned the honor in 1995, 1996 and 1997 before going on to play college golf at Clemson University. Glover joined the PGA TOUR in 2004 and has racked up 54 career top-10 finishes.

Most recently, Glover competed in the 2021 John Deere Classic. He shot 19-under-par 265, securing his first victory since 2011 by two strokes. Glover birdied five of his seven last holes, leading him to his fourth professional career win.

The John Deere Classic's top 5 included seven players, six of which share a common past. Glover defeated former AJGA juniors Ryan Moore of Tacoma, Washington, Kevin Na of Seoul, South Korea, Luke List of Seattle, Washington, Scott Brown of Augusta, Georgia, and Adam Schenk of Vincennes, Indiana.
