Bio: Avid Clemson Tiger sports fan.
An avid reader, particularly mysteries and thrillers. Read four books during the week of his rainy 2009 U.S. Open victory.
Credits his grandfather, Dick Hendley, for giving him his start in golf. Grandfather gave him a cut-down club when Lucas was 3 and first took him to the Masters at age 6. Hendley was a standout in football and baseball at Clemson, where he is a Hall of Fame member and played one season (1951) with the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers. Lucas was inducted into the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame in the fall 2007.
