That was the case yesterday at the Travelers Championship, two days after his improbable victory at Bethpage Black. Following his introduction on the first tee to start his practice round, and amid polite applause from the gallery, Lucas teed up his golf ball, stepped back to begin his pre-shot routine, and promptly took a pie to the face, courtesy of PGA Tour buddy Johnson Wagner. (Click the photo above to see the video.)
Explains Wagner's caddie, Steve Hale, who was in on the prank: "This started three-four weeks ago at Memorial. Johnson and I were talking about it. We were having a practice round and saying, 'Why doesn't it ever happen in golf? We're doing interviews all day Monday and Tuesday.' You see baseball players do it all the time. It would be perfect. We were having this conversation with Lucas. He goes, (imitating Glover's Southern accent), 'That's a great idea. That would be so funny.'"Hilarious.
More hilarious: the pie-to-the-face gag with Tiger Woods as the victim.
Most hilarious: the pie-to-the-face gag with Colin Montgomerie as the victim. At the Ryder Cup. And Nick Faldo doing the tossing.
