Professional golfer Lucas Glover’s family includes two children, a wife and ex-wife, and the mother with whom his second wife is accused of having a domestic altercation. He was very close to his grandparents growing up.
Lucas Glover’s family ended up in the headlines over Mother’s Day weekend when Krista Glover, the current wife of Glover, is accused in the domestic battery of her husband, allegedly calling him names like “loser” because he played poorly during the 2018 Players golf tournament. An arrest report also accuses Krista Glover of telling her husband when he plays golf tournaments that “he better win or her and the kids would leave him and he would never see their kids again,” according to an arrest incident report obtained by Heavy.
Lucas Glover is a professional golfer and former U.S. Open champion.

The St. John’s County Sheriff’s Office website says that Krista Conley Glover was released on $2,500 bail and gives her address as Jupiter, Florida. She was booked on May 12, 2018 at 10:22 p.m. and was released on May 13 on charges of battery and resisting an officer, according to the online court records. According to ESPN, Lucas Glover “missed the 54-hole cut at The Players Championship,” which unfolded over the same weekend.
When authorities arrived at the couple’s Florida rental property, they found a troubled scene. Present were Lucas Glover, his wife, and his mother, Hershey Glover, according to the arrest report obtained by Heavy. You can read the report in full here:
Lucas told authorities that “the altercation began earlier in the evening after playing a bad round of golf. Lucas advised me every time he plays poorly in a tournament, Krista begins yelling at him stating he is a ‘loser’ and ‘p*ssy’ and ultimately starting an altervation with him about his performance.”
Lucas also allegedly told authorities that Krista “had been drinking throughout the day, and after playing a bad round of golf today, she began yelling at him in front of their kids and his mother,” the report states. “Lucas advised Krista to stop the argument, while in front of the kids.” She put the kids to bed and Lucas was relaxing on the porch when she “began a physical altercation with him causing a laceration to his arm,” according to the Florida incident report.
Lucas Glover allegedly said that his wife “acts this way and starts altercations all the time.” However, in a statement posted to Twitter when news of the incident broke, Lucas Glover painted a very different picture of the altercation.
