We are proud to introduce our ScribeAmerica and HealthChannels Golf Ambassadors – professional golfers who we will support through the 2019 season. They will carry custom ScribeAmerica camouflage golf bags on tour this year, representing ScribeAmerica’s ongoing commitment to veterans.
HealthChannels Brand Ambassador, Lucas Glover, was born in Greenville, SC and displayed great talent for golf at an early age while attending Wade Hampton High School in Greenville, where he received several major amateur golf victories. Glover turned pro in 2001 after graduating from Clemson University, where he received a bachelor’s in speech communication. While attending Clemson, he broke several records, including lowest total score for a 54-hole event (201) and low stroke average by a junior (71.24).
Glover joined the Nationwide Tour in 2002, making 7 of 12 cuts while recording two top-10 finishes and five top-25 finishes in his rookie season. Glover became a member of the PGA in 2004 and is best known for winning the 2009 U.S. Open, a win that launched him from No. 71 to No. 18 in the world rankings, and won his third PGA tournament at the 2011 Wells Fargo Championship.
Glover credits his grandfather, Dick Hendley, Clemson Hall of Fame member and former (1951) NFL Pittsburgh Steeler, for giving him his start in golf, as well as his passion for the sport. Off the course, Glover enjoys reading, music, fishing and is a passionate Clemson Tigers sports fan.

My dad – he played professional soccer in 4 different countries as well as the national team. He now runs his own company, and I think that having a career in both worlds [sports and business] and eventually combing the two is something that I admire.
Inspiration to play golf:
My grandfather started playing golf at 40+ and later went on to win the European senior championships. He got me into golf.
Other hobbies when not playing golf:
I love cooking and spending time with family and friends. I’m also a big fan of animals.
That varies a bit. Right now I love playing around the green with my lob wedge.
Favorite movie or show:
Modern Family right now, as it’s nice to go to bed after having a couple of laughs.
Authentic Italian (I used to live in Italy).
What you’ve learned that could help others in their professional careers:
If you have your mind set on becoming or doing something, stick to it, no matter what anyone tells you (or doesn’t tell you). When you succeed, it’s the most rewarding feeling.
Ullna GC and Bro Hof in Stockholm, Sweden. In the U.S., I would have to say Cypress Point.
Jamie Sadlowski’s rapid rise to the top echelon of power golf has been nothing short of spectacular. The Canadian phenom, a former junior hockey player from St.Paul, Alberta, made an immediate impact on the sport of long drive.
The 30-year-old Professional is known for his incredibly athletic swing and the outrageous ball speed he creates at impact, more than 220mph of ball speed at his peak. Twice a junior world long drive champion, Sadlowski subsequently stepped up on the big stage at the World Long Drive Championship and won back-to-back titles in 2008 and 2009. He has nine consecutive television finals and has never finished worse than 5th in the world in his long drive career.
After performing more than 600 exhibitions/shows around the world, Jamie started a new chapter in his career taking a shot at playing professional golf. With no formal junior, collegiate or amateur golf career Jamie has tested his skill on the course and has made cuts on the web.com, PGA Tour Canada and Asian Tours. He also won medalist honors in the US Open qualifying and the web.com tour first stage qualifying school in the fall of 2018. Additionally, Jamie has teed it up at the PGA Tour’s Safeway Open and Colonial National Invitation tournament and played two majors in Australia, the Aussie Open and Aussie PGA. Sadlowski will split time between his home in St. Paul Alberta, Canada and Scottsdale, AZ where he is a member at Whisper Rock Golf Club.
