In 2015, we introduced the Fore the Brave Pro-Am Charity Golf Tournament presented by HealthChannels(formerly ScribeAmerica Charity Golf Tournament) – an annual event committed to raising funds to support our military veterans. Golf has been a wonderful platform for us to raise funds for several great non-profit organizations while strengthening relationships with our valued partners and friends. We have also built new friends, including some with tremendous golfing talent.
We are proud to introduce our ScribeAmerica and HealthChannels Golf Ambassadors – professional golfers who we will support through the 2018 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.
