Recounting the incident, Samantha Marks, who co-hosts the podcast with Paige, shared her memory of the incident that the pro golfer experienced after a rough third round at the championship, where he scored a 78.

“She showered Lucas with insults, called him a p***y and a loser, then resorted to physical violence,” stated the journalist as she explained the case in detail. Mrs. Glover threatened to leave him with the kids if he didn’t win and resorted to hitting him and his 63-year-old mother. The golf pro’s wife then called the cops on both of them and went ahead to lie to them, accusing Glover and his mother of abuse. However, when the authorities came, they arrested Krista, considering there were visible injuries on both the pro and his mother.

She then mentioned how the situation would have been different if the roles were reversed. “Domestic violence is no joke on either side,” continued the diva as she mentioned how people don’t talk about the abuse that most men face in relationships. Although the family sorted everything out as they got back together, Spiranac made sure to express the seriousness of the issue.

Despite everything that has transpired, the golfer has come a long way since he registered his win at Sedgefield. One can’t help but admire Glover, as he went through a lot to succeed at his game and in life.
