Lucas Glover shoots a 65 for a one-shot lead at PGA event in Las Vegas

One long putt got Lucas Glover going Saturday and put him in position for his first PGA Tour victory in five years. 

Glover was even par for his round when he holed a 45-foot birdie putt on No. 8, followed with a 9-foot eagle putt on the next hole and made a pair of birdies and a key par putt in the closing holes for a six-under-par 65 in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. 

Glover had a one-shot lead over Brooks Koepka (70) and Rod Pampling (71). 

“That eighth hole was kind of the catapult,” Glover said. “I made that long one, and two great shots into 9 and turned in 3 under and kept it going.”
