Schedule Clemson’s 2011-12 golf schedule features three new tournaments, the Jerry Pate Invitational and The Ridges in the Fall, and the Woodlands Invitational in Houston,TX in the Spring. Head Coach Larry Penley released the schedule in August, his 29th schedule as leader of the Tigers program. He has taken Clemson to the NCAA Tournament each of his 28 previous seasons. Clemson opens the season September 9 at the Carpet Classic in Dalton, GA, the 20th consecutive year the Tigers have played in the event at The Farm, a par 72 layout that is 7012 yards. Clemson finished third against a national field last year behind a fifth-place individual finish by 2011-12 senior Jacob Burger. That will be Clemson’s only tournament in the month of September. The next event will be the Jerry Pate Invitational, October 3-4 at the Old Overton Club in Birmingham. It will be Clemson’s first trip to the Jerry Pate since the fall of 2005. Clemson won the event named after the 1976 US Open Champion four consecutive years between the fall of 1997 and the fall of 2001, the only time Clemson has won the same tournament four years in a row. This will be the final year of The Ridges Intercollegiate in Johnson City, TN so all the former champions are returning to compete at the tournament where East Tennessee State’s fine golf program serves as host. Clemson won The Ridges in the fall of 1998 behind individual medalist Jonathan Byrd, who is now on the PGA Tour. Byrd’s brother Jordan is now associate head coach of the Clemson program. The Tournament will run October 14-16. Clemson concludes its fall slate at the US Collegiate at the Golf Club of Georgia. Clemson won the tournament in the spring of 2006 and the spring of 2009. The Tigers open the spring schedule in Puerto Rico at the Westin Rio Mar Classic. It will be the 20th consecutive year the Tigers have gone to Puerto Rico early in the spring season. Clemson has nine top three finishes at the event that is one of the top national tournaments in college golf. The Tigers will play their next two tournaments in South Carolina, the USC-Aiken Cleveland Classic at Palmetto Country Club March 5-6, then the Furman Invitational in Greenville March 16-18. Clemson is the two-time defending champion at the Furman Invitational. Clemson will play two tournaments in a 10-day period March 31 through April 8. First, Penley’s team will play the Augusta State Invitational for a two-day event the week before the Masters, then participate in the Woodlands Invitational in Houston,TX April 6-8. That will be Clemson’s final tournament before the ACC Tournament at The Old North State Club in Uwharrie Point, NC April 20-22. The NCAA Regional tournaments start May 17 at six sites around the country. Two of the regionals are in close proximity to Clemson, Greensboro, NC and Athens, GA. The NCAA Championship will be held at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, CA, the same course that serves as host of the Northern Trust Open on the PGA Tour. It has also been the site of three professional majors, most recently the 1995 PGA Championship.

Larry Penley’s Tigers will play another national schedule in 2012

2011-12 Clemson Golf


Golf Heritage Academic Excellence •Only 17 student-athletes in Clemson athletics history have earned AllAmerica honors on the field and in the classroom in the same year. Two of the 17 student-athletes who have accomplished this have been golfers. Jonathan Byrd is one of three Clemson student-athletes to accomplish this twice (1998-99 and 1999-00) and D.J. Trahan did it in 2001-02. Trahan actually was named the National Player of the Year in 2002 when he was named a third-team Academic All-American by CoSIDA, the only National Player of the Year to also be an academic All-American in the same year. •Two Clemson golfers have been named Academic All-American on three occasions. Jason Griffith accomplished this in 1986-88 and Oswald Drawdy was a three-time selection from 1988-90. •The Clemson golf team has had a team GPA of 3.0 or better in 17 of the last 28 semesters. Six times in the last 12 years the team has posted a team GPA of 3.0 or better for the spring semester, then ranked in the top 16 in the nation at the NCAA Tournament. •Ben Martin, a senior in 2010, was a three-time selection to the All-ACC academic team and a two-time selection as an Academic Scholar by the Golf Coaches Association. He graduated in December of his final year at Clemson and is now on the PGA Tour. •Current Clemson starter Crawford Reeves has made the Academic AllACC golf team each of the last two years. Two current Clemson freshmen, Stephen Behr and Hayden Garrett, both had 4.0 GPAs in their first semester this year. Award Winners •Charles Warren became Clemson’s first NCAA Champion in 1997 when he captured the championship at Conway Farms Country Club outside Chicago. He defeated Brad Elder of Texas in a playoff and overcame a three-shot deficit to Jason Gore of Pepperdine during the final round. Warren won the NCAA Championship as a junior, then won the Dave Williams Award as the top senior golfer in the nation in 1998. •D.J.Trahan won the Ben Hogan Award and the Jack Nicklaus Award in 2002 as a junior. During that 2002 season,Trahan won three tournaments, including the NCAA East Regional Championship. He posted a 70.33 stroke average, still among the top 15 single season stroke averages in NCAA history. •Kyle Stanley won the Ben Hogan Award in 2009 as a junior. He finished second at the NCAA Tournament two of his three years at Clemson. •Clemson has had 52 All-America selections over the years, including at least one All-American in nine consecutive seasons between 1996-04. The list includes 14 first-team All-Americans, 11 second-team selections, six thirdteam selections and 21 honorable mention selections. Kyle Stanley was a first-team selection as a freshman in 2007, the only freshman in Clemson history to be named a first-team All-American. He was named first-team again in 2009 when he finished second at the NCAA Tournament. •Six players (Chris Patton, Charles Warren, John Engler, Lucas Glover, D.J. Trahan and Kyle Stanley) have been named first-team All-American twice. Amateur Championships •Clemson players have had a strong heritage when it comes to success in national amateur events. The most noteworthy championship took place in 1989 when then Clemson rising senior Chris Patton won the US Amateur title at Merion Country Club in Ardmore, PA. He then went on to be the low amateur at the 1990 Master’s finishing in 39th place. •Three other Clemson golfers finished as runner up at the US Amateur, Parker Moore in 1976, Danny Ellis in 1993, and Ben Martin in 2009. Michael Hoey, who played at Clemson in 1998-99, won the British Amateur in 2001. •Three Tigers have won the United States Public Links Championship and every time they were still Clemson golfers at the time of their triumph. Kevin Johnson won the US Public Links in 1986 and D.J.Trahan won the title in 2000, his freshman season at Clemson. Current Clemson junior Corbin Mills won the US Public Links in 2011 and will play in the 2012 Masters. Mills also won the 2011 Players Amateur. •The Sunnehanna Amateur is one of the top amateur tournaments each summer. A Clemson golfer won the event four consecutive years between 2001-04, including Lucas Glover, who was the 2001 champion and is now on the PGA Tour.

Larry Penley led the Tigers to a National Championship in 2003. He is ranked fourth in all-time tournament victories with one school with 61 career wins.

• In the summer of 2006, four different Clemson players won six amateur events. Phillip Mollica won the Monroe amateur in June to start the run. Ben Martin won both the Festival of Flowers and the Palmetto Amateur. Kyle Stanley won he Sahalee Players Championship in the state of Washington and the Southern Amateur in Birmingham within a two-week span. He was named the National Amateur Player of the Month for July. Tanner Ervin won the Rice Planters Amateur in July as well. •In the summer of 2008, Mollica won his second Monroe Amateur and is the only person to win the event twice. Stanley won the Southern Amateur for the second time and played in the Arnold Palmer Invitational on the PGA Tour in 2009. Four Clemson golfers advanced to the United States Amateur in 2008, including three who made it to match play. Coaching Excellence •Clemson Head Coach Larry Penley is ranked fourth in NCAA golf history in total tournament victories with 61. He is second among active coaches, first among active ACC coaches. He is second in ACC history behind former Wake Forest coach Jesse Haddock who won 83. •Penley is one of the few active coaches who has already been inducted into the College Golf Hall of Fame. At the age of 44 in 2003 he was inducted into the Hall of Fame, the only coach in any sport in Clemson history to be inducted into the sport’s Hall of Fame while still the Clemson coach. •Penley was named the National Coach-of-the-Year by the College Golf Coaches Association and GolfWeek in 2003, the year he led the Clemson program to the NCAA Championship. He is a six-time ACC Coach-ofthe-Year, one of just two coaches in the league’s history to win that award six times. •Penley has been the head coach at Clemson for 28 years. In that time he has led the program to seven NCAA Regional titles, more than any other coach. He has taken Clemson to the NCAA Tournament all 28 years and has finished in the top 20, 21 times, more than any coach in Clemson history regardless of sport. •Prior to Penley, Clemson had great leadership under Bobby Robinson, who led the program from 1975-83. It was Robinson who took Clemson to its first NCAA Tournament in 1980, its first ACC Championship in 1982 and

Season Outlook No Clemson athlete has lettered in golf and football in the same year since the 1950s, and there hasn’t been a common denominator on the two sports coaching staffs since Whitey Jordan was an assistant football coach in the fall and coached the golf team in the spring from 1963-68.

Jacob Burger

But, there has been a consistent relationship between the two programs over the last eight years. Each of the last four falls that the Clemson football team has finished the year with a top 25 national ranking, the Clemson golf team has followed that with a top 20 final ranking, including two top 10 finishes. That oddity is just one of the reasons for optimism around the Clemson golf team for the spring of 2012, because Dabo Swinney’s football team had its best year in 20 years in the fall of 2011 with an ACC Championship and top 20 final ranking. Can Larry Penley’s Tiger golf team keep up the pace this Spring? Based on the performance this past fall, the Tigers are on pace to follow suit. Despite missing the team’s second best player for the fall schedule, the Tigers enter the spring with a number-15 national ranking, the same ranking the Clemson football team had in the final BCS poll. Larry Penley’s team had a 33-14-1 record against a national schedule that included competition against 11 of the top 25 teams in the nation. “We had a good fall, especially when you consider Crawford Reeves, our second best player last year in terms of stroke average, did not hit a single shot,” said Head Coach Larry Penley, who has taken the Tigers to the NCAA Tournament every year he has been the head coach (since 1984). “I was pleased with the way the freshmen picked up the slack.

Season Outlook Clemson 2012 Signing Class

Corbin Mills

Clemson Head Coach Larry Penley announced the signing of four student-athletes to National Letters of Intent for the 2012-13 academic year. Penley has added Miller Capps of Denver, NC; Cody Proveaux of Leesville, SC; Blake Kennedy of Moore, SC and Parker Mills of Easley, SC. Proveaux was named the AJGA National Player of the Year this year after he had outstanding performances in major junior tournaments. Proveaux won the Junior PGA Championship in August when he made a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole at the Sycamore Hills Golf Club in Fort Wayne, IN. He also had four runner-up finishes in AJGA Invitational events (HP Boys Championship at Carlton Woods, FootJoy Invitational, Rolex Tournament of Champions, Bobby Chapman). The Pelion High School product is ranked fourth in the world among junior amateurs by Golfweek and was named a first-team Rolex All-American. He was joined on that team by current Clemson freshman Billy Kennerly. Proveaux has won the 2A State Championship each of the last two years and has led his Pelion High School team to the state title as well. Proveaux attends the same high school as Clemson football player Dalton Freeman and the two were on the same Pelion High golf team during Freeman’s senior year of high school in the spring of 2007. Proveaux’s trophy shelf also includes hardware from the 2010 Polo Golf Junior Classic, which helped him earn second-team Rolex Junior All-American honors in 2010. Kennedy has won the state Region II-4A Championship each of the last three years and will be looking for a fourth straight title this spring. He finished in the top 10 of the state tournament each of the last two years. He was named the Herald-Journal Boys Golfer of the Year in 2011. This past summer he won the Junior Azalea thanks to a round of 62. He finished off the summer by qualifying for the US Amateur with a 141 score at a qualifier at St. John’s Creek, GA. Capps comes to Clemson from North Lincoln High School in Denver, NC. He is a three-time all-state and all-conference team member and has already played on two state championship teams in North Carolina. Capps was the state runner up at the 2009 state championship and won the regional title individually that year. Currently ranked as the number-one player in the Tar Heel Youth Golf Association, he qualified for the 2011 US Junior Amateur. He is ranked 20th in the US in the class of 2012 by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard. He made the cut at the North Carolina Amateur and the North Carolina Open this past summer. Mills is the brother of Clemson junior Corbin Mills, who won the US Public Links Championship this past summer. Parker has been a Region 4A All-Conference selection each of the last two years. The senior at Wren High School finished third at the Jimmy Self Invitational and fourth at the Blade Junior Invitational this past summer.

“We played a tough schedule in the fall and I am glad we did because it will prepare us for the spring,We finished in the top five in three of the four tournaments, including the Jerry Pate, where we were second against a very good field.”

Links Champion. Mills had a solid sophomore year when he led the team in stroke average at 73.00 and had a team best four top 10 finishes, including a 10th place the Augusta State Invitational and a sixth place at the ACC Tournament.

Clemson already has wins over ranked teams Duke, Florida Sate, Georgia, Southern Cal,Tennessee and others.

He then jumped on the national scene in the summer of 2011 by winning the Public Links in dramatic fashion. He followed that up with a victory at the Players Amateur as well. He was under strong consideration for the Walker Cup by the end of the summer.

Last year Burger was third on the Clemson team in stroke average with a 73.23 figure, but had just seven more strokes in the same amount of rounds as team leader Mills. Burger had 14 rounds at par or better to tie for the team lead. He had top 10 finishes at the Carpet Classic, when his performance included a career best 65 in the second round, and at the Furman Invitational where he finished sixth to help Clemson to the team victory.

“Corbin has had an outstanding last six months. When you look at his list of accomplishments it is close to being unprecedented here. He has the talent to dominate and he showed that this past summer.

Burger has qualified for the US Amateur three times in his career, including each of the last two years, and he has won at least one match at the North-South Amateur each of the last three years.

Mills followed up the summer with a strong fall that included a personal victory at the Jerry Pate Invitational in October with a 201 score, a total that tied for the lowest 54-hole score in Clemson history. He had four rounds in the 60s, all consecutive, to tie another Clemson record, including a career best 65 in the opening round at the Jerry Pate. He had the low round of the day among Tigers in eight of Clemson’s 12 team rounds this past fall. He has qualified for the 2012 Masters and the Heritage on the PGA Tour.

“Jacob has been Mr. Counter over his career,” said Penley. “We are looking for him to continue that in the spring when we will depend on his experience “

“I am anxious to see what we can do once we get Crawford Reeves back in the lineup.” Reeves had to sit out the fall schedule due to a back ailment, but he is expected to be ready to go in the spring. The native of Greenville had a 73.06 stroke average last year, second best on the team by just two total strokes over the academic year. He actually had the best average on the team for the spring half of the schedule, and finished first among Clemson golfers in three of the last six tournaments, including the NCAA Regional at Erie, CO. “Crawford is one of the best players in the country. He showed that last spring when he had top 16 individual finishes in six straight tournaments and was our best player at the NCAA regional.

top 15 counting percentages in Clemson history.

McCuen Elmore was fourth on the Clemson team in scoring average last year with a 74.06 figure, but he was second among Tigers this past fall with a strong 72.33 figure for 12 rounds. He had a lot to do with Clemson’s top 15 ranking on Christmas Day. “We needed someone to step up with Crawford’s

“He is also one of our team leaders. If he can come back healthy this spring we can get to the Match play at the NCAA Tournament and anything can happen from there. He can take a lot of the burden off Corbin Mills.” The most renowned player on the 2012 Clemson team is junior Corbin Mills, the defending US Public

Jacob Burger is the most experienced player on the Clemson team. The senior from Orangeburg, SC is a veteran of 27 tournaments and 80 rounds entering the spring season. He is a consistent golfer with 61 of his 80 career rounds at 75 or better and he has had his score count in 69 of his 80 career rounds, one of the

injury and McCuen was one of the players to do it. His score counted 11 of the 12 rounds and he showed an ability to take it low with a 68 at the US Collegiate in the second round. He was our best golfer in two of the four tournaments against strong fields. He is ready for a strong final spring and we need him to.”

Season Outlook

and his 15th place finish was the best among Clemson golfers. Classmate Hayden Garrett also showed his capabilities with a couple of solid performances in the fall. He had a 30th place finish at the Bank of Tennessee to tie for third among Clemson golfers and his 143 total over the last two rounds tied for the best on the Clemson team. Garrett’s score counted in all six rounds he played in the fall. “The freshmen were really a great shot in the arm for us this past fall. Hayden Garrett and Billy Kennerly have the mentality to compete and succeed at the highest level. We saw that this past fall when they both made big contributions in tournaments against national competition.” Penley played just six golfers this past fall, but that number will grow in the spring depending on Reeves’ health and the advancement of some other players, four of them whom are returning lettermen. Alex Boyd had a 74.22 stroke average last year for three tournaments and nine rounds and the senior is a veteran of eiight tournaments overall. He had a 15th place finish at Furman when he played as an individual and he shot a 69 in the opening round of the Augusta State Invitational when he scored the first double eagle in Clemson Golf History.

McCuen Elmore

Elmore started the fall of 2011 with an eighth place at the Carpet Classic thanks to a career best threeunder-par 213 score. He had all three of his rounds at par or better for the first time in his career. He tied Mills as Clemson’s best performer at the US Collegiate with a 215 score. Thomas Bradshaw is a returning letterman who had a strong finish to his freshman year. The native of Columbia, SC was to be red-shirted last year, but Penley decided to activate the rookie in the spring and he responded. In his second career tournament he shot a final round 64 to lead Clemson to a come from behind win at the Furman Invitational.

Brewer Bradshaw, older brother of Thomas, played in two events last year. He has battled injuries on and off over his career, but the fourth year junior is hoping to play consitently as he did over the final two rounds at The Brickyward last year when he had consecutive rounds of 70-71 to close with a top 25 finish. Mike Muscatell and David Dannelly are two experienced players whi hope to see some playing time. Dannelly started during the fall of 2010 and had a 67 in his career round at the Carpet Classic when he finished

He finished third overall at the event and the 64 tied the Clemson record for the lowest final round. He started the rest of the year and gained outstanding experience. He played in three of the four tournaments this past fall and had a 76.0 average. The 2011 Clemson football team featured the play of National Freshman of the Year and First-Team Associated Press All-American Sammy Watkins. Penley doesn’t have a rookie with corresponding ability on the golf course (we aren’t sure anyone does), but the 29th year Clemson head Coach does have two freshmen who made a big impact this past fall by striking golf balls down the middle of the fairway while Watkins was streaking through the middle of enemy defenses in Death Valley. Billy Kennerly is a true freshman from Alpharetta, GA who played in all four tournaments this past fall. He was third behind Mills and Elmore in stroke average with a 73.67 average, including two rounds in the 60s and five rounds at par or better. The two-time AJGA All-American showed his ability when he fired a second round 70 at the Carpet Classic, then had a 69 in the final round at the Jerry Pate Intercollegiate to help the Tigers make a run at a victory. His second round 69 at the Bank of Tennessee tied for the best of the day

Corbin Mills, U.S. Public Links Champion Clemson junior Corbin Mills made a four-foot par putt on the 37th hole to defeat Derek Ernst of Clovis, CA and the UNLV golf team to win the United States Public Links Championship at the Old Macdonald Course at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, OR. Mills won the 36-hole stroke play qualifier, then won six matches to capture the championship. He is the first golfer to win both the stroke play qualifier and the match play championship in the same year since 2000 when former Clemson golfer D.J. Trahan did it. Trahan also won the championship match in 37 holes that year, as he defeated Bubba Dickerson. Trahan’s championship was also recorded in Oregon (Portland). Overall, Mills is just the seventh player to win both the stroke play and the match play in the same year. Mills is the third Clemson golfer to win the US Public Links. In addition to Trahan’s win in 2000, Kevin Johnson won the title in 1986. Ironically, Johnson lost the event in a 37 hole final the next year (1987). So four times a Clemson golfer has reached the championship match and it has been decided in 37 holes three times. Mills victory brings with it a 10-year exemption to the United States Public Links Tournament, a two-year exemption into the field at the US Amateur, and a probable an invitation to the 2012 Masters. “This was a big victory for Corbin,” said Clemson head Coach Larry Penley. “He had it in him. The biggest thing he did was improve his putting. He really improved his pace (in putting). That should give him confidence and our entire team confidence. “To see him hang in there after losing five straight holes on the second 18 and lose the lead was impressive. He could have hung his head and packed it in. But he didn’t and he got the momentum back when he made that birdie on the 15th hole to tie the match. I am very proud of him.” Mills was dominant in the event in many ways. He was the only golfer to shoot under par for the 36- hole stroke play qualifier on Monday and Tuesday with a three under par 138 score. In winning his six matches, he trailed for just seven of the 117 holes of match play and never trailed by more than one hole the entire week. He went 74 consecutive holes of match play without trailing at one point. Mills won three of the first four holes on Saturday against Ernst, including the third and fourth holes with birdies. He won three of the final four holes of the first 18, including a birdie three on the 18th hole. Mills had a two-up lead when the players broke for lunch after 18 holes. Mills increased his lead to four up after the 24th hole of the match and still had the four-up lead after the 26th hole. But, Ernst, the Mountain West Player of the Year the

last two years, won five consecutive holes (9-13 on the second 18) to take a one-up lead. He hit his tee shot on the par three 242-yard 12th hole to within four inches, then hit his approach to two feet on the par four 13th. When Ernst made the birdie on 13 it was the first time Mills had trailed in a match since the second hole of his Sweet 16 match with Talor Gooch, 74 holes earlier. The two players halved the 14th hole, then Mills got some momentum back when he made a 20-foot birdie putt to win the par five 15th hole. Ernst won the 16th hole when Mills missed a six-foot par putt, but Mills squared the match on the 17th hole, the 35th hole of the match when Ernst hit the ball into a bunker on three consecutive shots. The two players halved the 36th hole. Holes 14-18 were good to Mills all week. He won 14 holes and lost just four all week on those final five holes, including a 5-2 record against Ernst on Saturday. Both players hit solid drives in the fairway on the 37th hole of the match, the first hole on the course. But Ernst hit his second shot short, leaving an 80-foot putt. He three-putted from that distance and Mills two putted from 40 feet to win the tournament. It was quite a week for Mills who won the tournament despite an ear infection and “pink eye”. “The birdie on 15 was big,” said Mills, who was playing in his first ever match play tournament. “That seemed to give me some momentum. I lost the 16th hole, but I made a good chip to have a chance at a par and then won the 17th hole. So, I got my confidence back. “This was quite a week. The overall key was that I didn’t get ahead of myself. I just took it one match at a time, one hole at a time. I played within myself. I won a lot of holes with pars, including the deciding hole.”

PENLEY Head Coach 29th Season

Larry Penley is in his 29th season as Clemson’s Head Coach. He has earned just about every honor possible in his tenure. That includes induction into the Collegiate Golf Hall of Fame at the age of 44, winning an NCAA Championship (2003), coaching two Ben Hogan Award winners (D.J. Trahan and Kyle Stanley), three US Public Links Champions (Kevin Johnson, DJ Trahan and Corbin Mills) and leading the Tigers to 21 Top 20 seasons, more than any coach in any sport in Clemson history In the summer of 2009 he watched former Tiger Lucas Glover win the 2009 United States Open, his first protégé to win a Major.Then, in August, it was announced that he was selected for the South Carolina Golf Hall of Fame. In December of 2009, it was announced Clemson’s new golf building would be named in his honor. The building was dedicated in September of 2011 and is one of the finest golf facilities in the nation. Penley has been a model of consistency since he became head coach in the fall of 1983. All 28 of his previous Tiger teams have been selected for the NCAA Tournament, including 25 that have advanced to the national tournament. In his 28-year career, Clemson has posted 23 top 25 finishes, 21 top 20 finishes, 17 top 15 finishes, 12 top 10s and eight top five finishes at the NCAA Championships. That includes a streak of seven straight top 10s from 1997-2003, the first Clemson athletic program to do that since the men’s tennis program had seven straight between 1980-86. His top 25 seasons and top 20 seasons are a standard for any coach in any sport in Clemson history. His 11 top 10 finishes are second to former Clemson soccer coach Dr. I.M. Ibrahim, who had 14. Over the last 15 years, Clemson has nine top 10 national finishes, among the top five totals in the nation.

Penley has led Clemson to the NCAA East Region title, seven times, including a pair of “three-peats”. One of the “three-peats” happened as recently as 2002-03-04. No other college coach has won more than his seven NCAA regional championships. The former All-ACC golfer at Clemson has won 61 tournaments as head coach of the Tigers, fourth in NCAA history for a coach at one school. He is third among active coaches with that total. He has won at least one tournament in 26 of his 28 seasons as Clemson head coach. He also has 66 second-place finishes, giving him 127 first or runner-up finishes in his career at Clemson in 351 tournaments. Clemson players have flourished under Penley’s leadership. No less than 15 of his former players participated in various PGA or Nationwide Tour events in 2010. Six of his former players were full members of the PGA Tour in 2011 and five will be on tour again in 2012. It was a remarkable year for former Tigers in the professional ranks in 2011. Jonathan Byrd and Lucas Glover both won PGA Tour events. Glover won the Wells Fargo Invitational in a playoff against Byrd that brought unprecedented attention to the Clemson program. When Byrd won the season opener in Maui, it was his fifth career victory. He was also inducted into the Clemson Ring of Honor in 2011, joining Charles Warren as the only former Tigers in that category. At the end of the year Byrd, Glover and Kyle Stanley all ranked in the top 60 on the PGA Tour money list. D.J. Trahan was a fourth former Tiger who retained his Tour card and Tommy Biershenk earned his through a fifth place finish at Q school. Michael Hoey finished 25th on the European Tour and won two events. Glover won the 2009 United States Open and finished ninth on the PGA Tour money list in 2009. He has also played on each of the last two United States teams in the President’s Cup. Trahan was inducted into the Clemson Hall of Fame in 2010 and has two PGA Tour wins. Clemson had 12 players on the ACC 50-Year Anniversary team in 2002, and 11 of the 12 players were coached by Penley. His former players have combined to win 10 PGA Tour events, including at least one each of the last eight years. Only Arizona State and UNLV can also make that claim. Individually, Clemson has had 17 top 10 NCAA Tournament finishes in Penley’s career.

One of those top 10 finishes came in 2003 when the Tigers won the national championship with a two-stroke victory over Oklahoma State on the Cowboys home course. It was Clemson’s first national championship in golf and the program’s first in any sport in 16 years. Penley’s Tigers also won the ACC Championship and the NCAA East Regional title that spring, making Clemson the first program in NCAA history to win its conference, regional and national championship in the same year. Clemson won a school-record six team titles for the academic year and ranked number-one in the nation by Golfweek/Sagarin and the Golf Coach’s Association for the entire season. As a result of these achievements, Penley was named the National Coach of the Year by Golfweek and the Golf Coach’s Association for 2003. He also received coach of the year honors from the ACC and for the NCAA at the District level. In January of 2004, he was inducted into the Golf Coach’s Association’s Hall of Fame, quite an accomplishment for someone just 44 years of age at the time. The victories continued in the spring of 2004 when he led the Tigers to the ACC Tournament and East Regional Championship and finished with another top 20 finish at the NCAA Tournament. Clemson has had three more top 16 finishes since the 2004 season with a seventh place at Sunriver, OR in 2006, the fifth place finish in 2008 at Purdue and a 16th place finish at

Penley brought the Clemson program to another level in 1986-87, as he captured his first ACC title and the program’s second. Overall, Clemson won a then record five events and finished second in three others behind a team that featured All-Americans Chris Patton and Kevin Johnson. Clemson finished 11th at the NCAA Tournament that season. Penley was named ACC and NCAA District Coach-of-the-Year for the first time.

That includes the NCAA Championship by Charles Warren in 1997, and his number-two finish in 1998. Kyle Stanley finished second in 2007 and 2009 and won the Ben Hogan Award in 2009. Ben Martin finished ninth in 2010. Penley has been honored for his success in the ACC, winning the ACC Coach-ofthe-Year honors five of the last 14 years and six times overall. He was the first coach in ACC history to win this award three consecutive years (1996-97-98). He has eight ACC championships to his credit, second on the all-time list of ACC mentors. Penley has to rank as the best combination player-coach in Clemson history next to the legendary Banks McFadden. In the 1930s McFadden was an All-American in football and basketball and coached the Clemson basketball team for nearly a decade. Penley was chosen All-ACC as a Tiger golfer and has led Clemson to eight ACC titles as a coach. He is one of only two coaches in Clemson sports history to do this (former women’s track Wayne Coffman is the other).

Clemson’s current mentor had one of the best teams in school history and the na-

The Larry B. Penley Clemson Golf Building was dedicated in September of 2011 and gives Clemson one of the finest on-campus golf facilities in the nation.

He has played for and coached Clemson in the NCAA tournament. In addition to the success of his former players on the PGA Tour, former Penley players have brought national distinction to the school in national amateur tournaments. Chris Patton won the 1989 United States Amateur, while Danny Ellis advanced to the finals in 1993. Johnson won the US Public Links championship in 1987, and Trahan won the same event in 2000. Corbin Mills won the Public Links in 2011 and will be in the field at the 2012 Masters. Ben Martin was a finalist at the 2009 US Amateur and played in the 2010 Masters. Over the years, Penley’s program has produced 52 All-America selections, including at least two in nine of the last 15 years. Kyle Stanley was a first-team selection in 2007 and 2009. Penley has coached eight different players who have played in the Walker Cup. That includes Matt Hendrix who posted a 2-0-1 record in the 2003 event. In 2001, senior Lucas Glover and sophomore D.J. Trahan were both members of the 2001 United States Walker Cup team. Jonathan Byrd was a member of the United States Walker Cup team in 1999 and played on the Palmer Cup team in 1999 and 2000. Clemson dominated the Palmer Cup teams of 2000 and 2001 with three players each year. John Engler was a three-time selection to the United States Palmer Cup team. Trahan was the captain of the United States team in 2002, leading the US to victory at the event held in Ireland. Penley was honored with his selection as the 2004 Palmer Cup team coach. Penley has had a high level of success since he first became Clemson head coach. After serving as an assistant on Clemson’s 1983 team that finished fifth in the nation, then the highest finish in school history, Penley took a young Clemson team to a 19th place finish in his first year. That club was paced by Dillard Pruitt, who earned All-America honors for a second time in his career before going on to a distinguished eight-year run on the PGA

tion in 1988. That year, the Tigers won five events for the second straight season, including four victories in the spring. Clemson won the ACC title for the second straight year and captured the Chris Schenkel Invitational on the way to 10 top five finishes. In the 1988-89 season, Kevin Johnson and Chris Patton received All-America honors again and led the Tigers to a third-place finish at the NCAA Tournament, Clemson’s highest ranking ever at the time. In every tournament the Tigers entered they finished in the top five and the team had a 72.61 stroke average, best in school history at the time. Johnson ended his career as one of Clemson’s top golfers in history. He had won the United States Public Links (1987) and earned a spot on the Walker Cup team (1989) during his Clemson career. In 1989-90, Penley’s Tigers won four tournaments including the ACC title, and finished 12th at the NCAA tournament. For the second time ever the team was ranked number-one going into the spring season. When Chris Patton won the 1989 U.S. Amateur the program received considerable attention. He was the low amateur at the 1990 Mas-

ter’s. Three Tigers, Patton, Oswald Drawdy, and Danny Ellis earned All-America honors in the spring season. Many thought the program would decline a bit after Patton’s graduation, but three freshmen made an impact in 1990 and continued to bring the Tigers to new levels of consistency over the next three years. Danny Ellis, Bobby Doolitte and Nicky Goetze kept Clemson’s NCAA Tournament top 15 streak in tack, including a fourth place finish in 1992-93. The 1993 team actually had five players earn some type of All-America honors, a first in Clemson history. That team also won Penley’s first NCAA Regional title. Despite being a young team, in 1994 Clemson finished ninth in the NCAA tournament. Mark Swygert, a senior on the Clemson team, finished third and 11-under-par in the tournament. Swygert broke four Clemson individual records in NCAA play with that performance. He had an overall score of 277 (-11), which beat the previous best of Dillard Pruitt by 10 strokes. Swygert’s third round is still the best ever by a Tiger in the NCAA Tournament vs. par (65) (-7). The 1996-97 academic year brought more national acclaim to the Clemson program as junior Charles Warren won the NCAA Championship at Conway Farms in Chicago.The thrilling one-shot win in a playoff over Brad Elder was captured on ESPN. Warren went on to earn first-team All-America honors along with senior Richard Coughlan, who shared ACC Player of the Year honors. The 1997-98 season was the best on record in many respects. In addition to Clemson’s number-two NCAA finish and final ranking, the team set 11 school season records. That team had nine first or second-place finishes, also a record for one season. All five starting players averaged under 73.0, also a first for a Clemson team.The squad was 29-under par for the season, 104 strokes better than the previous school record. Clemson continued the excellence in 1998-99 with five tournament titles to tie the single season school mark, a number-one national ranking much of the year and a numbereight finish at the NCAA Tournament. Only four opponents out of the 67 different teams the Tigers faced had a stroke and won-loss advantage against Clemson. Clemson had a 77.3 percent winning mark against those 67 teams, including a 71-37-4 record against the 29 other schools in the NCAA National tournament. It seemed improbable that the records established by the 1997-98 team could be eclipsed. But that was the case in 1999-00, as the Tigers established a team stroke average record with a 71.32 mark.The team was 77-under-par for the year. Four Tigers earned AllAmerica honors, including Lucas Glover who was a first-team choice after a record setting 71.24 stroke average for the year. Clemson won the ACC Tournament and the East Regional in the same year for the first time ever, then finished seventh at the NCAAs. Current PGA Tour players Lucas Glover, D.J. Trahan and Jonathan Byrd all played on that team. The 2000-01 season marked the end of the Lucas Glover and John Engler era at Clemson. Both were first-team All-Americans in their final seasons and led the Tigers to a second place NCAA finish, just as they had in their freshman season.

Larry Penley has had two Ben Hogan Award winners, D.J. Trahan in 2002 and Kyle Stanley (above) in 2009.

A testimony to Penley’s ability to keep the Clemson program at a high level on a consistent basis was the 2001-02 season. Most college golf observers thought Penley’s success level would take a step backwards in 2001-02. With the loss of first-team All-Americans Glover and Engler, the Tigers were ranked just ninth in the preseason Precept Coach’s poll.

2011-12 Clemson Golf


But, the Tigers won the Ping Preview in the fall and quickly returned to the top five of the polls. In addition to the win at the Ping Preview, Penley’s Tigers won the NCAA East Regional in a co-championship with #1 ranked Georgia Tech. The Tigers finished in the top five in 10 of their 12 tournaments that year, including seven top three finishes. The Tigers concluded the campaign with a number-three finish at the NCAAs at Ohio State. Trahan furthered Clemson’s tradition in 2002 by winning the Ben Hogan Award as the top college golfer in the nation. He had a 70.33 stroke average, second best in the nation and eighth best in NCAA history at the time.Trahan won three tournaments, the first Tiger to do that, and had three other second-place finishes. He then led the Tigers to the national championship in 2003 and finished his career with five tournament victories, tied for the Clemson all-time record.

Larry Penley Larry Penley & Ben Martin 2009 US Amateur Finalist

Producing such outstanding golfers is not a surprise when you look at Penley’s own career as a player. The native of Dallas, NC started his golf career at North Gaston Senior High. There he earned high school All-America honors for two years, three years as allconference, and Most Valuable Player for three years. In his junior and senior seasons he was second in the state at the AAA level. After high school, Penley came to Clemson bringing his talents with him and began to add on to his previous honors. Penley’s 1981 season was his senior year and his finest at Clemson. He was voted All-ACC, and had a spring stroke average of 72.66, which still ranks as one of the best 10 spring figures in Clemson history. Penley finished with a total of nine Top 10 finishes in his career. This includes winning the Iron Duke Classic and the Southeastern Invitational and finishing in the Top 10 in three other tournaments in 1981. Penley went on to play in 15 mini-tour events on the FPCA after his four years at Clemson. He was offered the assistant golf coaching position at Clemson in 1982. He accepted it and was named the head coach after the 1983 season. He took the place of Athletic Director Bobby Robinson, who stepped down from the coaching position so he could put more efforts into his position as the Associate Athletic Director. Ever since Penley has taken over in 1983-84 all of his squads have finished their seasons at the NCAA Tournament. In 1987 and 1988 Penley won the South Carolina state amateur. He tied a record in 1987 by shooting an 11-under-par 277, a record that has since been broken by one of his Tigers, Lucas Glover, in 1999. In 1986 and 1989, Penley was also the runner-up. He has qualified for the U.S. Amateur many times also. During the summer of 1992 he won the Carolina Golf Association Mid-Amateur by five shots, and was fourth in the South Carolina State Amateur. In 1990 he also won the South Carolina Mid-Amateur. Penley is married to the former Heidi Grove, and they have three children, Andrew William, Mollie Ashton, and Kelsey Lou.

Testimony from Former Players and Coaches Bobby Robinson

“Larry was the first major recruit we got to come to Clemson. We had to beat all of the top programs at that time including Wake Forest. I remember vividly his comment when he told us he was coming to Clemson over those programs: ‘I am coming to Clemson because of the atmosphere, the people, the campus and because I want to make a difference in building a program.’ He was right on all counts. His coming to Clemson elevated our program to be able to attract others and start us to where we are today. I have always said, Larry took a regional program and turned it into a national program. He was a terrific player, but his greatest contribution has been the quality golf program he has established and maintained and the way he has done it. Larry is one of the most respected coaches and one of the most liked coaches in the nation.That is a rare combination. He is Clemson through and through and we are very fortunate to have him as a Clemson Tiger.”

Lucas Glover

“Coach Penley means the world to me. Looking back on it, there is not another coach that I would have rather played for. First of all, Coach is a great person. He brings out the best in everyone. He knows how to get the most out of each player, and that's what makes him a great coach. And coach can still play, so that helps with instruction and different situations. There's nothing better than having someone that "has been there before" helping you make a change or make a critical decision.”

Charles Warren

“When I look back at all the people that have influenced, not only my golf career but my life, one of the first people that comes to mind is Larry Penley. When you are fortunate enough to play golf at Clemson, Coach Penley is like a father to all the players on the team during their years there. My five years at Clemson were some of the best times of my life and Coach Penley is the one that gave me that opportunity; for that I am very grateful. “

D.J. Trahan

“Larry Penley is a great motivator. He knows how to motivate his players by being supportive. He provided great balance for me when I played at Clemson. He kept my head on my shoulders and did not allow me to get distracted. He was always ready to help you any way he could. He has really created a Clemson family when it comes to the golf program. Coming out of high school, players pick schools because of the winning tradition and expectations for a program. That is at Clemson, but you also know you are going to become part of a close knit family. You see that by how the former players come back. He has made the former players feel welcome and the younger players see that.”

Jonathan Byrd

“I was very fortunate to have played my college golf for Larry Penley at Clemson. I don't think any team had as much fun as we did on and off the golf course. He taught me so much about how to play and how to compete, while giving me my space to practice and work out my game on my own. I am very grateful to Larry and the whole Penley family for their support and for being such a great influence on my life.”

John Engler

“Larry Penley is a best friend, a father figure while you are at school. He is an awesome Coach. He hates losing just as much as his players do! He is truly one of the most competitive guys I have ever been around, and he teaches you, sometimes in a hard way, how to become better and get to the next level!” Bo Beard “Every time we went to a tournament, no matter where it was, Coach Penley always said, ‘Someone is going to win the tournament, it might as well be the Clemson Tigers’. What I truly remember most is the 1987 ACC Tournament in Greensboro. We won the tournament that year and it was Larry's first ACC Championship and the second for Clemson. I will never forget how happy we were for him and Coach (Bobby) Robinson. The ride back to Clemson seemed like it only lasted 30 minutes.”

Assistant Coach Jordan Byrd Jordan

BYRD

Assistant Coach 7th Season

Jordan Byrd is in his seventh year as Clemson assistant golf coach. From recruiting to golf instruction to facility enhancement to overall administration of the program, Byrd has had a positive influence on Larry Penley’s program. In his first six years with the program, Clemson has finished in the top 20 at the NCAA Championships three times, a number-seven finish in 2006 and a numberfive finish in 2008 and a 16th place finish in 2010. The program has had a US Public Links Champion, a US Amateur runner-up and two runner-up finishes at the NCAA Tournament. Byrd was one of 10 semifinalists for the 2010 Jan Strickland Award presented by TaylorMade-adidas Golf as selected by the GCAA. The Strickland Award is presented to the NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA or NJCAA assistant coach that, among other things, has excelled in working with their student-athletes both on the course and in the classroom. Clemson’s number-five finish in 2008 was the best for the program since it won the national championship in 2003. The Tigers have been to the NCAA Tournament all six years he has been with the program and have twice captured the US Collegiate Tournament in Atlanta. Clemson also won the Furman Invitational twice, and finished second at the NCAA Southeast Regional. Byrd had a significant impact on Clemson’s top five recruiting class that entered Clemson in August of 2006. Sam Saunders and Kyle Stanley were both ranked among the top 10 junior players in the nation and went on to have outstanding freshman seasons.The class also included 2010 All-American Ben Martin, who was a three-time All-ACC player. Stanley and Martin were both regulars on the PGA Tour in 2011. Byrd also recruited first-team AJGA All-American Crawford Reeves in 2009 and Corbin Mills, another top AJGA player. The top recruiting continued in 2011 when the Tigers signed first-team AJGA All-American Billy Kennerly, Stanley was named ACC Player of the Year as a freshman, the first freshman in ACC history to win the award. He also became the first freshman in Clemson history to be named a first-team All-American and he finished second at the NCAA National Championship, the highest finish by a Clemson golfer since 1998. Stanley then finished second again at the 2009 NCAAs and won the Ben Hogan Award as the top collegiate golfer in the nation. He is in his second year on the PGA Tour in 2011. Byrd moved into the newly created assistant golf coach position at Clemson University on August 4, 2005. He became Clemson’s first assistant coach in the sport since the 1982-83 academic year when Larry Penley held the position before he succeeded Bobby Robinson as Clemson’s head coach the following year. Byrd has considerable experience as a player and is familiar with the Clemson program. He was the Southern Conference Champion in 1997 as a junior, and is the brother of former Clemson All-American and current PGA Tour player Jonathan Byrd. Jordan Byrd was the captain of the Furman golf team his senior year (199798). He won the Southern Conference Championship as a junior in 1997 when the Paladins also won the team title. With that team championship, Furman qualified as a team for the NCAA tournament for the first time in the program’s history. Byrd had 11 top 10 finishes in his career at Furman and was named to the AllSouthern Conference team in 1997 and 1998. He led the team in stroke average as a junior (74.1) and had a career stroke average of 75.72, still among the best in Furman history. He had a career best 66 at the 1996 Old Dominion Seascape Invitational and was Furman’s top golfer in nine different tournaments over his career. Over his final two seasons as a collegian, he competed against his brother Jonathan and the Clemson Tigers four times. It is interesting to note that the brothers had the exact same 54-hole score in two of the four tournaments. They tied for eighth with 218 scores at the 1997 Furman Invitational, then had identical 229 scores at the NCAA East Regional later that year at Hot Springs, VA. Jordan was a junior at Furman and Jonathan a freshman at Clemson that year. Byrd comes from an athletic family. In addition to the accomplishments of his brother, his father, the late Jim Byrd, was a standout football player at North Carolina in the 1960s. Jim Byrd and his wife Jo were omnipresent at Clemson golf events supporting the Tigers. Jordan also had an outstanding amateur career, a playing career that continues today. He reached the semifinals of the North-South in 1997. In 2006 he finished second in the South Carolina Amateur (tied with Clemson player Phillip Mollica). He also qualified for the US Amateur and the US Mid-Amateur. In both qualifiers, he won medalist honors. He also teamed with his father, to win the South Carolina FatherSon Amateur Championship in the summer of 2006.

2011 U.S. Public Links Champion Corbin Mills is one of many outstanding student-athletes to come to Clemson since Jordan Byrd became an assistant coach with the Tigers program. In the fall of 2007 he reached the quarterfinals of the United States Mid-Amateur. He was just three victories away from joining his brother at the 2008 Masters. Byrd was ranked among the top 100 amateurs according to the Golfweek Amateur rankings for most of the summer of 2007. In 2008 he advanced to the second round of the US Mid-Amateur at Milwaukee Country Club before he was defeated in 23 holes by former Clemson golfer Stephen White. He also qualified for stroke play of the Mid-Amateur in 2009. A native of Columbia, SC, Byrd graduated from Spring Valley High School, where he was an outstanding golfer and wrestler. He reached the state finals in his weight class on the wrestling mat in 1994, the same year he finished in the top 10 in the state golf tournament. On the course, he led Spring Valley High to three top five finishes in the state tournament. He won the Spring Valley Invitational as a senior and captured the 1993 Junior World Optimist title. After graduating from Furman in 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration, Byrd pursued a professional career for two years. He played on the Hooter’s Tour and the Tear Drop Tour during his professional and had four top five finishes. From May of 2001 to the summer of 2005, Byrd worked as a salesman, trader, portfolio manager, and technical analyst at DiBiasio & Edgington Inc in Annandale,VA.

Clemson Adds Women’s Golf Head Coach J.T. Horton and the Lady Tiger Golf Program will compete beginning in the fall of 2013

John Thomas (J.T.) Horton was named the first women’s golf coach at Clemson University in August of 2011. Larry Penley, Clemson Director of Golf, made the announcement. Clemson will begin play on the course in the fall of 2013. Horton comes to Clemson after four years (three seasons of competition) as the head coach at Tulane. He re-started the program after Hurricane Katrina halted it from the fall of 2005 until the fall of 2008. “I would like to personally thank Dr. Terry Don Phillips, Kyle Young and Coach Larry Penley for this amazing opportunity,” said Horton. “Very few times are coaches fortunate enough to coach at their dream job. Clemson University is my dream job, and I am honored to be a part of such an elite university and athletics program. “Clemson Golf has a wonderful reputation in the golf community. I am so excited to work with Coach Penley, as he is easily one of the best and most well respected coaches in the country. There is a great expectation with the golf program. I am looking forward to working extremely hard in putting together a successful women’s program that the Clemson family will be proud of!”

In that first year, he led the Green Wave to two tournament titles, including the CUSA Championship and the Ole Miss Lady Rebel Intercollegiate, a fifth-place finish at the NCAA East Regional and a 20th-place finish at the 2009 NCAA National Championships. The team finished in the top five in six of 11 tournaments. Five of his six first-year players were named to All C-USA first, second or third teams, and Linn Gustafsson was tabbed the Conference USA Player and Newcomer of the Year, while freshman Daniela Holmqvist captured the C-USA championship individual medalist honors en route to earning the league’s Freshman of the Year honors. Horton’s second year mirrored the success of his rookie season. He led the Green Wave to its second straight C-USA Championship and a return trip into the NCAA Championship, where his team posted an 18th-place national finish.

In his three seasons, Horton was the Conference USA Coach of the Year twice (2009 and 2010), led the program to the NCAA National Tournament twice and the NCAA regional three times. Tulane won the Conference USA championship twice and won five tournament titles overall.

His sophomore season as a head coach featured a school record three tournament victories, including the Conference USA Championship, which was won in record fashion. The team posted a 54-hole score of 858, the lowest team tournament score in school history.

The Green Wave finished in the top three in 14 of 33 tournaments over the threeyear period. He had 14 all-conference players on the course and 17 on the Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll in those three years. He coached the Conference Player of the Year each of his three years with the program.

Under his leadership, five Green Wave players were named to the 2010 All-Conference USA teams, including three to the first team, and for the second straight season he coached the C-USA Player of the Year with Janine Fellows’ Co-Player of the Year selection. Off the course, six of his seven players were either members of the Conference USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll, earned the C-USA Commissioner’s Academic Medal or is a member of Tulane’s 3.0 Club. The group included Linn Gustafsson, who was named to the NGCA All-Scholar Team in 2010. She also made the team in 2011.

“J.T. is a perfect fit for this job and we are fortunate to have a coach of his caliber and experience serve as our first women’s coach,” said Penley. “I have known him for a long time. He is from Clayton, GA (just 30 miles from Clemson) and used to come here in the summers to talk about the coaching profession. “He is a great fit for this job on a number of levels, but an important one is his experience when it comes to starting a program. He was faced with that at Tulane after Hurricane Katrina. He knows what it takes. He brought Tulane to instant success with a conference championship and a top 20 finish in his first year as a head coach. “He is very familiar with our men’s program and knows how we do things. We had a

46

lot of candidates for this position, including many other head coaches. But, J.T stood out.” Horton was named head coach of the Tulane women’s program on July 4, 2007. He established the program through recruiting the first 13 months, then put a quality team on the course for the 2008-09 season.

In 2010-11 the team had six top 10 finishes in 10 tournaments to qualify for the NCAA regional for a third straight year. The team finished 17th in the final Golfstat computer ranking. He led Tulane to a third-place finish in Conference USA and once again he coached the league’s top player, Maribel Lopez Porras. Porras qualified for the NCAA national tournament as an individual and was a Golfweek honorable mention All-American. Four more players made one of the three All-Conference USA teams, and Meghan Chapman was named the top newcomer in the

Horton helped the Eagles win the 2006 Southern Conference Championship, where all five golfers finished in the Top 25 individually and the team won the title by 12 strokes over College of Charleston. The team also advanced to the NCAA East Regional finishing one spot out of qualifying for NCAA National Championship. During the 2006-07 season, GSU posted four top five team finishes including a runner-up showing at the SoCon Championship. During his two seasons in Statesboro, Ga., Horton coached Jonathan Shaw who earned Academic All-America honors in 2006 and played an integral role in J.D. Kennedy, Drew Bowen, and Bryan Jones claiming All-Southern Conference honors. As the program’s recruiting coordinator , Horton helped Georgia Southern ink one of the top recruiting classes in school history in 2007. He also oversaw the team’s player development, workouts and physical conditioning, as well as serving as the liaison to the director of student-athlete services for academic progress. A four-year letterman at Berry College, Horton was a first-team NAIA All-America as both a junior and senior and claimed first-team All-TranSouth Conference honors all four years. He helped the Vikings win the conference title from 1996-1999 and capped off his career as a member of the NAIA National Championship team in 1998. Individually, Horton won six collegiate tournaments, including TranSouth Conference medalist honors in 1997 and 1998. He was selected to represent the U.S. in the 1998 World University Golf Games in San Lameer, South Africa.

Walker Course The Walker Golf Course is one of the most picturesque areas on the Clemson campus. It is one of the top public courses in the state of South Carolina and features the signature Tiger Paw Hole, a challenging par three whose green and four sandtraps resemble the shape of Clemson’s famous logo.

The 20-year dream of golfers in the Clemson family became a reality on October 5,1995. Clemson University officials dedicated a new $8.6 million conference center and a $4.4 million golf course. The conference center is named the Madren Center and is managed by the Clemson University Conference Services. The center is a spacious 56,000 square foot facility, and includes $700,000 worth of state of the art audio and video equipment. It also houses dining facilities. The facility is named after the late Claude V. Madren. He was a Charleston businessman who established a $2.5 million trust fund that will go toward the center when it matures. The golf course is named after Colonel John Emmett Walker, Sr. (Clemson ’26) who’s son Dr. John Emmett Walker, Jr (Clemson ’58) donated $1 million to the course. Colonel Walker was a member of the Clemson football team and an honor military graduate. Another family made a significant contribution to the development of the Walker Course. The Charles B. Feller (Clemson ’43) family initially gave the University $75,000 for seed money to build a golf course in 1974. After the project began, the family supplemented the effort through additional gifts totaling $80,000. The practice facility is named for Charles B. Fellers. Four of the holes are dedicated in honor of former loyal athletic administrators as the result of a $400,000 donation by IPTAY. The holes recognize the contributions of Gene Willimon, Bob Smith, Bob Moorman and Bob Jones. Moorman and Jones were Clemson golf coaches,Willimon was executive secretary of IPTAY for 27 years and Smith was a Clemson football coach and administrator for 30 years. The course features Bermuda fairways and tees and bentgrass greens. The front nine extends along Honeycutt Creek from Old Stadium Road to the Botanical Gardens. The back nine runs high atop a hill overlooking Lake Hartwell and the Blue Ridge Mountains and extends down the edge of the lake with a look resembling a links course. The scenery along the back nine is eye-catching as the course winds near the lake. The signiture hole of the course is the 17th, a par three whose green and sandtrap layout is in the form of a Tiger Paw. Television analyst Steve Melnyk says, “This course is a perfectly balanced course. It has upland pasture holes, tree-lined fairways, and lakeside vistas. These are the three elements golf course architects love most.” Players of any skill level can enjoy the Walker Course, as there are five different sets of tees. A high handicapper can enjoy playing from the Red (4,667), Gold (5,405) or

48

White (5,934), while the low handicapper can feel challenged by the Champion (6,560) or the Tiger (6,911) tees. After playing a round on the links, players can get a taste of South Carolina at the “Seasons by the Lake” restaurant. Located in the Madren Center overlooking the 18th green and Lake Hartwell, the restaurant features fresh products form South Carolina. The James F. Martin Inn was added to the site in July 1998. It is an 89-room Inn overlooking the golf course and lake and is connected to the Madren Conference Center. It is named for Clemson alumnus Jim Martin, who made a significant donation to the University for the creation of a faculty chair in the School of Business. Membership to the Walker Course is available for individuals and corporations on either a resident or non-resident basis. Public play is also welcome, including golf outings. For more information on the Walker Course, please visit their web site at www.clemson.edu/conference_center or contact the golf shop at (864) 656-0236. In the spring of 2009, the Walker Course was recognized both on national and state levels as a top golf course. Links Magazine rated the Walker Course as one of the top-25 collegiate courses in the country in its “Best Of” issue. Coming in at 23rd on the list the course was ranked with courses from schools including Yale, Duke, the University of North Carolina and Ohio State. In South Carolina, the course was voted the best public golf course in the Upstate by the South Carolina Golf Course Rating Panel.

Robinson Practice Area

Clemson’s Robinson Golf Practice Facility was dedicated in June 28, 2002 the final day of work for outgoing Clemson Athletic Director Bobby Robinson. After work that day he was escorted to the golf practice facility where he was met by many Clemson administrators, past and present. At a surprise private ceremony, the facility was renamed the Bobby Robinson Golf Practice Facility. Robinson retired on that Friday after 17 years as Clemson athletic director and over 30 years serving Clemson University. The facility opened in 2005 and was the first step in Clemson’s Tiger Pride facilities renovation plans. It was a fitting ceremony because it was Robinson who put the Clemson golf program on solid footing when he was head coach between 1974-83. He led the Clemson team to its first NCAA team tournament appearance in 1980, its first ACC championship in 1982 and its first top five national finish (1983). He left the coaching ranks to concentrate on athletic administration. Current Clemson head coach Larry Penley has continued the tradition, leading the program to 27 more NCAA Tournament appearances. Earlier in his final year, Robinson was presented The Order of the Palmetto by the State of South Carolina for his contributions to the state and Clemson University. He was inducted into the Clemson Hall of Fame in September of 2002. In his 17 years as athletic director Clemson won 56 ACC Championships and had 151 top 25 seasons, including nine his last year. Sixteen of the 19 programs had at least one final top 10 national ranking. In terms of academics, he designed the concept and building of Vickery Hall, Clemson’s student-athlete learning center, a concept that has been copied nationwide. The grade point average of Clemson student-athletes has risen from 2.30 to 2.85 since it opened in 1991. The facility that bears his name provides the Clemson golf team with a top of the line practice facility right on campus. There is an all-weather practice area that allows the Tigers to hit the range year round. A complete video equipment area is also available that

50

allows for swing analysis. The first goal of the Robinson Practice Facility is to simulate as many on-course challenges as possible. Over the course of a college tournament there are many situations that players have to deal with. Robinson Practice Facility architect John Lafoy accomplished this goal. The facility includes two putting greens with Bermuda grass and one with Bent grass. The Bermuda green has many humps and bumps around the green so that players can simulate all types of pitches and chips shots around the green. The Tiger golfers can hit up to 80-yard wedge shots into the Bermuda green into various hole locations. There are also two bunkers that allow the Tigers to practice downhill and uphill bunker shots. The driving range has teeing grounds at each end of the range. This allows the team to practice into different wind conditions. There are five target greens with bunkers and mounds surrounding each target. Each green was designed to replicate approach shots in tournament golf. Additionally, there are three hole locations on each green so that each player can practice shaping their shots and vary their yardages. There is also a simulated fairway with fairway bunkers. Players can then adjust the teeing ground on the tee box to work on different types of tee shots. The biggest compliment the coaching staff has received on the facility has come from the former players who are playing professional golf on the PGA Tour. These players have come back to practice and feel that their games will improve by practicing at Clemson.

Tiger Golf Gathering Each year the Clemson golf family meets to celebrate the accomplishments of the prvious year. The celebration includes the current team and the former players, many of whom have gone on to great success at the professional level. The first “Tiger Golf Gathering” took place in December of 2003 and honored the Tigers 2003 National Championship team. The team received its championship rings at the ceremony. The Tiger Golf Gathering has now become a fixture on the schedule for more than 60 former Tigers and their families. Over 400 people attended the 2010 celebration at Thornblade Country Club in 2010. A highlight of the evening was the announcement of the progress that had been made towards the construction of Clemson’s new golf building will be named the Larry B. Penley Jr. Golf Facility.Thanks to the efforts of Glover, Jonathan Byrd, and Charles Warren, who have been the driving force behind the Tiger Golf Gathering, over $1 million has been raised for the facility, which began construction last winter. The three-story, 6,600 square foot facility will provide meeting space and locker room space for the Clemson golf team. The 2009 Tiger Golf Gathering also included a check for $100,000 towards the building by Lucas Glover. The presentation was the result of Glover’s participation with the United States President’s Cup team in 2009. The Tiger Golf Gathering also includes two days of golf competition for the former Tigers in the pro ranks along with Clemson benefactors and administrators. Former Clemson legends such as Steve Fuller, Dwight Clark, Jim Stuckey and Rodney Williams have also participated. The events also include a live auction and a silent auction featuring Clemson sports memorabilia from the golf program, the PGA Tour and other sports. The 2011 event took place at the Reserve Golf Club in Sunset, SC and in conjunction with the dedication of the Penley Clubhouse.

2003 National Champions

Every school has special memories of its teams that have claimed national championships. That is certainly the case with Clemson, who won its fourth in the school’s athletic history on May 30, 2003 when the Tiger golf program won its first NCAA title with a two-shot victory over Oklahoma State at Karsten Creek in Stillwater, OK. Clemson won three national team titles in the 1980s, the football title in 1981, and men’s soccer in 1984 and 1987. All three of those championships were gained in extraordinary circumstances. The football team had finished 6-5 in the previous season and was not ranked in any of the preseason top 20 polls for 1981. Then Danny Ford’s Tigers went a perfect 12-0, the only undefeated team in college football that year, finishing the year with a 22-15 win over perennial favorite Nebraska. The 1984 Clemson soccer team became the first team in any sport in NCAA history to defeat the numbers-four, three, two and one seeds in an NCAA Tournament in winning the national championship. Four years later Dr. I.M. Ibrahim’s team entered the tournament as the number-23 seeded team in the 24-team field, then won the championship in a Final Four played at Clemson’s Riggs Field. Unlike the program’s three previous titles, the Clemson golf team of 2002-03 had been ranked number-one in the nation from the preseason poll, and by a wide margin. Heading into the national tournament at Stillwater, Clemson’s margin over second-ranked Florida in the Golfweek/ Sagarin ranking, was equal in computer points to the distance between #2 Florida and the 17th place team, New Mexico. “We had a dominating regular season,” said Head Coach Larry Penley when commenting on his 20th and most magical season at Clemson. “We were in every tournament and won five events before the NCAAs at Stillwater.” But, that momentum from the regular season did not carry much weight heading to the national championment having recorded five tournament victories in the spring, ships because the Tigers including the NCAA Central were faced with the task of Regional.

The comparisons were amazing. Mike Holder has eight National Championships at Oklahoma State, Duke basketball Coach Mike Krzyewski has eight Final Fours at Duke. Cameron is known for its intimate atmosphere, while the NCAA allowed spectators to walk the fairways with the players the entire tournament. The final round was played in 90 degree heat. Prior to the installation of air conditioning in Cameron Indoor Stadium in 2002, it seemed to be 90 degrees in that facility on days the Tiger basketball team has played at Duke. Aside from the atmosphere surrounding the course, you can make a case that the home course advantage in golf is greater than any other sport. Oklahoma State’s players play that course every day. They know where all the breaks are in slick greens, know what clubs to hit from every distance in the fairway, know when to go for broke and when to play

conservatively. When Jack Ferguson hit his second shot to the 18th green in the final round, no less than 500 people (490 were Oklahoma State fans) stood as close as 15 yards from his back swing. When Oklahoma State’s Hunter Mahan put his second shot on 18 within 15 feet from the cup with a shot at an eagle three, you would have thought Shane Battier had just nailed a three-pointer with under 10 seconds left in Cameron. But, as had been his demeanor all week, Ferguson hit his approach just 15 feet by the hole. When he eventually two-putted for a par five to give Clemson the victory it gave the Tigers a landmark national championship victory, its first on an opponent’s home facility. “It was a great feeling,” said Penley, who had led

Clemson to six top four finishes previously, but never with a championship on his resume until 2003. “Any championship is special, but to win it at Oklahoma State made it more special because they have been the program that has had the most NCAA appearances, the most national championships, the most tradition. We have great respect for their program, so to win on their home course was memorable.” Clemson had become the first golf program in history to win its conference, NCAA regional and NCAA national tournament in the same year, an accomplishment that puts the resume of the 2003 Tiger golf team in perspective on a college golf history and Clemson athletic history basis. “This was a total team effort. You knew going into the season that D.J.Trahan would be there every tournament. A key was the improvement of Jack Ferguson and Matt Hendrix over the previous year. They’re stroke average improvement was among the top 10 in Clemson history from one season to the next. Gregg Jones was steady, especially in postseason play. Ben Duncan had a great NCAA Tournament. His score counted in each of the last three rounds when it meant the most. “We did not have an individual finish in the top 15 of the NCAA Tournament, yet we won the national championship. That shows you how solid we were as a team.”

Lucas Glover, U.S. Open Champion Over 60 years after he played his last down for the Clemson football team, Dick Hendley still has a positive effect on the school’s developing athletic heritage. Hendley was a blocking back under Frank Howard from 1946-50, creating holes for Fred Cone and Ray Mathews. He did it so well he was named the recipient of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy for the state of South Carolina and the Southern Conference in 1950. Hendley and friends combined to help the Tigers gain record chunks of yardage in 1948 and 1950, two of Clemson’s four undefeated seasons in 113 years of college football. For his efforts, Hendley was inducted into the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame in 1984. The next year, Hendley brought his grandson, Lucas Glover, to his first Clemson football game. Glover never missed another Clemson home game until he was a freshman in 1997. While Hendley was recruiting Glover to be a Clemson football fan he was also tutoring him on the joys of playing golf. “My grandfather got me my first golf club when I was just three years old,” recalled Glover, in one of many stories he told about Hendley after he won the 2009 United States Open at the Black Course at Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale, NY. “One of his best friends was a golf rep and he asked him to make me a club. I put it in my hands and it was a perfect fit.” While Glover was interested in all sports, and still is today, he developed a passion for golf and Hendley continued to feed it. “My grandfather and my uncles all played golf and just loved the game,” said Glover. “He had a putting green installed in his back yard at Thornblade so I could have my own practice green. It is still there.” Thanks to Hendley’s nurturing, Glover continued to work on his game as a youth. With Hendley, his mother (also a Clemson graduate) and father Jimmy following him at countless junior tournaments, Lucas became an honorable mention AJGA All-American in 1995, his sophomore year of high school. He made the team again in 1996 and earned second-team AJGA All-America honors in the summer of 1997. With his strong ties to Clemson, Glover came to Tigertown in the fall of 1997. His 11-year streak of attending every home football game came to an end when he was an instant starter on Larry Penley’s golf team that first fall. It didn’t take long for Glover to turn heads, as he won co-medalist honors at the Carpet Classic with Georgia Tech All-American Bryce Molder. Along with Jonathan Byrd, John Engler, Joey Maxon, and Charles Warren, he helped Clemson to a national second-place finish at the NCAA Tournament in Albuquerque. The Tigers finished with a 31-under par score, a figure that would have been an all-time tournament record had UNLV not shot a 34-under score at the same event. Glover continued to post outstanding numbers as a sophomore and junior. In 1998-99 he won his second tournament as a Tiger at Mauna Kea in Hawaii, and led the Tigers to an eighth-place national finish at the NCAA Tournament at Hazeltine in Edina, MN. Glover was Clemson’s top golfer at that event with a 295 score and he finished eighth in the field overall. His junior season, 1999-00, Glover helped the Tigers win the ACC Championship and the NCAA East Regional before finishing seventh at the NCAA National at Auburn, AL. His senior year, Glover won the first tournament of the spring at Puerto Rico, becoming just the second Clemson golfer to win at least one tournament in three different years. The Tigers finished the year with a second-place finish to Florida at the NCAA Tournament in Durham, NC. Glover concluded his career as a three-time firstteam All-ACC selection and he earned first-team All-America honors after his junior and senior seasons. He was named to the United States Palmer Cup teams in 2000 and 2001 and made the United States Walker Cup team in 2001. Six years later, Glover was inducted into the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame, joining Hendley to become the only grandfather/grandson combination in the Hall’s history. Another person who motivated Glover to play well was Head Coach Larry Penley. “Coach Penley has been as important as anyone in my career. He had credibility with us from day one because he had been there and done that. He had been such a good player himself and it is a lot easier to

listen to someone who is doing it himself out on the course.” Glover played on the Nationwide Tour in 2003 where he finished 17th on the money list with $193,989. That qualified him for a PGA Tour card in 2004 and he made 17 cuts in 30 events, but he finished 134th on the money list and had to go to the last stage of Qualifying School to earn his Tour card. In typical dramatic Glover form, he hit his approach shot on the 108th and final hole to within one foot of the pin and made a birdie to move under the cutline by a shot and earn his card for 2005. The 2005 calendar year was a landmark year for Glover in many ways. In October he won the Funai Classic in Orlando when he made a miracle 70-yard bunker shot for birdie on the last hole. That shot earned him an exemption for the next two years. While he was playing in 28 PGA Tour events that year, Glover found time to take a few courses online and finish his requirements to receive his undergraduate degree from Clemson. Glover continued his fine play in 2006 and earned $2,587,982 in 31 events, the most money earned by a Clemson professional golfer (at the time). He finished in 21st place on the money list. That fine performance was a contributing factor in his selection to the 2007 United States President’s Cup team, the first Clemson golfer to make a professional squad for the U.S. But, in 2008, Glover seemed to tire at the end of the year and he was smart enough to realize it. “I needed a break, so I took the last two months of the year off after I knew I had made enough money to keep my card. I spent a lot of time with my wife, the rest of my family and friends, went fishing, and went to Clemson football games.” He finished 105th on the PGA money list, but ended a streak of three straight years of earning at least $1.5 million. But he brought his career to a new level June 17-21 at the U.S. Open at the Black Course at Bethpage State Park, a par 70 course just 25 miles from New York City. It was destined to be a special week for Glover and Clemson. The USGA decided to have an all Clemson pairing for the first two rounds (something they also did with three players from Oklahoma State). Glover played with D.J.Trahan and Kyle Stanley for the first 36 holes. Glover shot a 69 in the first round, then went deep

2011-12 Clemson Golf

with a 64 in the second round. That second round performance included six birdies and no bogeys. He had a chance to tie the all-time record for low round in any major, but he made a par on the final hole and finished at seven under. His figure would have been the 36-hole record for the U.S. Open had Ricky Barnes not shot eight under. Glover fell behind by six shots as Barnes reached 11-under par at one point in the third round. But, Barnes came back to the field, and Glover moved back to sevenunder par by the end of the round. He trailed Barnes by just one shot entering the final round on Sunday. Monday, June 21, 2009 will be a day that will live with Glover and Clemson fans for many years. There was not a lot of work accomplished in the Clemson Athletic Department that day as ESPN and NBC televised the final round nationally and showed just about every shot Glover took. Glover made three bogeys on the front nine and made the turn at four-under par for the tournament. He still held the lead, however, as Barnes shot a five-over par score on the front nine. Glover made five straight pars from holes 10-14 to remain at four-under par. Tiger Woods was charging and had it to one-under par, just three back, and Phil Mickelson made an eagle on the par five 13th hole to tie Glover at fourunder par. But, Mickelson gave a stroke back on the difficult 15th hole to go to three under. The key hole for Glover was the par four 16th hole. After having made a bogey on the 15th to drop into a tie for the lead with Mickelson at three under, Glover hit his approach on 16 to within four feet. He made the putt for birdie to go back to four-under par. Mickelson made another bogey on 17 and all of a sudden Glover had a two-shot lead. Glover made pars on the last two holes to win by two shots over Mickelson, David Duval, and Barnes. With the victory came $1,350,000, a 10-year exemption to the U.S. Open and a five-year exemption to the Masters, the British Open, and any PGA Tour event. Glover continued to play well the rest of the summer. He finished fifth at the PGA, the third best finish by a former Tiger in a Major, won the PGA Grand Slam of Golf and was a member of the United States victorious President’s Cup Team. It was a year of firsts for Lucas Glover.


Charles Warren, Ring of Honor There are 15 individuals in the Clemson Ring of Honor and each has a unique story. Football great Fred Cone only received a scholarship offer after Frank Howard’s sister watched him dive into a swimming pool at a neighbor’s pool. Women’s basketball great Barbara Kennedy came to Clemson initially on a volleyball scholarship. Jerry Butler came to Clemson on a track scholarship and the first time Tiger football coaches saw him play was in a high school all-star game. Women’s track great Tina Krebs grew up in a foreign country and never saw the Clemson campus until she enrolled. During ceremonies prior to the Clemson vs. Florida State football game at Death Valley in November of 2009, Charles Warren joined the Ring of Honor as the first golfer inducted. Like the others, he had a unique journey to Clemson. Warren grew up a South Carolina fan. In fact, his father, C.O. Warren, was the head cheerleader for the Gamecock pep squad when he was in college. “I grew up a South Carolina fan because my dad had gone to South Carolina,” Warren said. “Rodney Williams is one of my close friends today, but I was one of those little kids at Williams-Brice Stadium in 1987 wearing a Mike Hold (former South Carolina quarterback in 1984) jersey who was chanting, ‘Rodney, Rodney, Rodney’ in the closing moments of that 1987 game in Columbia.” Something changed Warren’s allegiance from the time he was 10 until he entered Clemson in the fall of 1993. That something was the tradition of excellence of the Clemson golf program under Head Coach Larry Penley. “If you grew up in South Carolina and played junior golf you wanted to play for Larry Penley at Clemson,” Warren said. “I wasn’t that highly recruited coming out of high school. When Coach Penley called me and offered me a scholarship to Clemson, it changed my life. I couldn’t go out and buy a Clemson golf shirt fast enough.” Warren became a starter in his red-shirt freshman year in 1994-95. He helped the Tigers to an NCAA Regional title that year and to a 14th-place national finish in 1996. But, his performances at the NCAA national tournament were not impressive. Despite being named third-team All-American in 1996, he failed to break 78 at the NCAA Tournament at The Honors Course in Chattanooga. (It should be noted the tournament was played in tough conditions. Tiger Woods shot an 80 in the final round at that tournament to win the championship). In fact, in his first six NCAA Tournament rounds, Warren failed to score better than 77. But, his struggles at the NCAA Tournament all changed in 1997. Warren had won the ACC Tournament at Whitewater Country Club in Fayetteville, GA in April

of 1997, and finished third at the NCAA Regional at the Cascades Course in Hot Springs, VA in May. So he was on a hot streak entering the 1997 National Championship at Conway Farms in Lake Forest, IL. Warren began the national tournament with an even par 71, and then had a solid 68 in the second round. But in the third round, he shot a disappointing 73 and was six shots out of the individual lead, which was held by Keith Nolan of East Tennessee State. Warren was in fifth place at 212 and wasn’t even Clemson’s top golfer after three rounds. Richard Coughlan, who was ACC Co-Player-ofthe-Year that season, was one stroke better than Warren at 211 and in fourth place. Warren got off to a good start in that final round, but he thought he was out of the picture when he drove the ball into the water on the par three 11th hole. But he got up and down after taking a drop to make bogey, and it seemed to give him some momentum. “I really didn’t have a good idea where I stood during the final round,” Warren said. “I do remember thinking the leaders had not run away from anyone. I thought I was still in contention, but then I hooked a drive on the 16th hole into a bunker.” But, all was not lost for Warren, who hit a miraculous shot from that fairway bunker. “The best shot I hit all week was the six-iron from the bunker on 16. It hit the flag on the fly and it landed just three feet from the pin.” Warren made the putt and turned a probable bogey into a birdie. Warren finished the round with a 67, the secondbest round of the day by any golfer, and he waited for the other leaders to finish. He had posted a 279 total score and was the leader in the clubhouse. “Since I had started the round six shots off the lead, I finished ahead of the other leaders, including Jason Gore of Pepperdine, who had the lead most of the back nine. “I remember ESPN doing an interview with me when Jason was in the middle of the fairway on the last hole. He needed just a par to win. I was thinking, this is a waste of an interview.” But, Gore hit a wayward second shot on the par five hole and made a double bogey. That left Warren and Brad Elder, who had birdied 15 and 17 coming in, tied for first after regulation at 279. The two players went back to the 18th hole for the playoff. Warren hit a drive down the middle, while Elder hit a poor tee shot. At that point Warren knew a par would probably win the national championship. “I remember Larry walking the playoff hole with me and convincing me to hit my pitching wedge instead of a sand wedge on that final approach,” he said. “It was the right call.” Warren made his par to win the national title. Incredibly, Warren never had the outright lead in the tournament until he made that last putt in the playoff to win the championship. No Clemson golfer had won the national championship previously and no one has won the title since. Kyle Stanley came close two of his last three years with runnerup finishes, but Warren still holds that distinction.

At the conclusion of the 1997 season, Warren was named a first-team All-American, first-team All-ACC, and was named the South Carolina Amateur Athlete-of-theYear. As a senior,Warren won the Dave Williams Award as the National Senior Golfer-of-the-Year and won his second ACC Championship. He is still the only Clemson golfer to win the conference tournament twice. He finished second at the 1998 NCAA Tournament, missing a playoff by just one shot. Again he was named a first-team All-American. “It is fitting that Charles Warren is the first Clemson golfer to be inducted into the Ring of Honor,” said Penley, who has been Clemson’s head coach since 1983. “Charles set a standard. He showed his teammates and future Tigers that you can win big tournaments at Clemson. He showed that we could be a national program. His success helped build the foundation so the program could go to the next level and win the team national championship, which we did five years after he graduated.” “Charles was always a team leader,” said Lucas Glover, who was a freshman in 1998 when Warren was a senior. “He was someone we looked to. He is still a leader today, whether it is with the Tiger Golf Gathering, or just getting us all together when we are on the tour. He is very deserving of this honor.” Warren has gone on to a successful PGA Tour career. He made it on the PGA Tour in his first year out of school (1999). He won the Buy.com Tour’s tournament at the Cliffs near Greenville in 2002 and finished 16th on that tour’s money list. He won two Nationwide Tour events in 2004 and finished eighth on the money list to qualify for the PGA Tour. In 2005 he shot a 62 at the Chrysler Classic of Greensboro, and that is tied for the lowest round for any former Tiger on the PGA Tour. He has won over $1 million three times (2005, 2006 and 2007). He made 20 cuts in 2006 when he had a career-high nine top-25 finishes. He recently completed his eighth season on tour and has won over $5 million over his career. While his PGA Tour career has been a success, Warren’s time at Clemson stands out. Few former Clemson athletes have done more for the school since they graduated. Each year, Warren is one of the leaders of the Tiger Golf Gathering, a yearly reunion for the Clemson golf family. He is also significantly involved in the design and fundraising efforts for Clemson’s new golf facility. With his passion for Clemson, it is apparent that his induction into the Clemson Ring of Honor last month has a special meaning. “It will take a while to digest this, but I have told people that other than winning a major, this is the greatest honor I could win in my career,” Warren said. “I am most humbled by this induction. It will probably take 5-10 years before I really appreciate what it means. I am very appreciative of the opportunity Coach Penley gave me when he offered me a scholarship. This is just an incredible honor.”

Warren became the first golfer to be inducted into the Clemson Ring of Honor prior to the Clemson vs. Florida State football game on November 7, 2009.

Jonathan Byrd, Ring of Honor The 13-month period between October 2010 and November 2011 was quite a time period for Jonathan Byrd. It started with an incredible hole-in-one to win a PGA Tour event in Las Vegas, and ended with his induction into the Clemson Ring of Honor. It just doesn’t get much better than that. On October 21, 2010, Byrd was struggling to make the top 125 on the PGA Tour Money List and earn his PGA Tour card for the 2011 season. On October 24, 2010, he made the shot heard around the golf world when he made a hole-in-one on the fourth playoff hole, in near darkness, to win the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open. It marked the first time in the history of the PGA Tour that a player won a tournament with a hole in one, never mind it being in a playoff. That victory clinched Byrd’s Tour Card for 2011 and 2012. So how did Byrd start his 2011 season? All he did was win the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii with a 24-under-par score in another playoff. Although the events were two months apart, that gave Byrd wins in consecutive tournaments and both were in playoffs.

60

By the end of the PGA Tour 2011 season he had won a personal best $2,938,920 and finished 22nd on the money list, the second best finish by any Clemson golfer in any season and the best among former Tigers in 2011. He made 17 cuts in 26 events, including the first place at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and second place at the Wells Fargo in Charlotte. He actually tied former Clemson teammate Lucas Glover at the end of regulation, then lost in a playoff in what must be considered the greatest day of publicity for Clemson golf in history. The year ended with a phone call from yours truly that informed him that he had been elected to the Clemson Ring of Honor. “This is a great honor,” said Byrd. “To be in the same class as Frank Howard, Banks McFadden, Jeff Davis, Barbara Kennedy, that is very meaningful. I am humbled. This has great meaning to me because Clemson has been such a big part of my life. “I can’t thank everyone in the Clemson family enough, especially Coach (Larry) Penley, who has had such a positive impact on my life.” Byrd enrolled at Clemson on a golf scholarship in the fall of 1996 and it didn’t take him long to have an impact on the Clemson program. A starter from just about day one, he helped elevate the Clemson team to a consistent top 10

2011-12 Clemson Golf

program. It is not a surprise that the first Clemson team to put four straight top 10 finishes together coincided with Byrd’s four years at Clemson. “We finished in the top 10 all four years he was at Clemson, including a third place in 1997 and second place in 1998,” said Head Coach Larry Penley. “He won the Puerto Rico Classic in the first tournament of the spring of his freshman year. That was huge for us and huge for the program going forward.” Clemson finished third in the nation at the NCAAs that 1997 spring, as fellow Ring of Honor inductee Charles Warren won the NCAA Championship. Byrd was named first-team All-ACC as a freshman and would go on to become the first Tiger golfer to be named first-team All-ACC all four years of his career. The next season Clemson improved to second in the nation, losing by just three shots to UNLV at the NCAA Tournament at New Mexico State. Byrd was named honorable mention All-American that year. In 1998-99, Byrd’s junior year, he took over more of a leadership role, as Warren had graduated. Byrd earned first-team All-America honors with a 72.10 stroke average and seven top 10 finishes. He shot in the 60s 10 times. He was also honored as a second-team Academic All-American by CoSIDA and became the first Clemson golfer to earn Academic All-American on the course (1st team) and in the classroom (2nd team) in the same year. In 1999-00, he led the Tigers to a third ACC Championship in four years by shooting a 67 in the final round at the Old North State Club. He finished fourth overall and was named first-team All-ACC, honorable mention All-American and Academic All-American. Clemson then closed the year with a fourth straight top 10 team finish. “We made a significant move forward nationally when he was at Clemson, finishing in the top 10 every year, “ said Penley. “He set a high standard of excellence on and off the course because he was a two-time academic All-American in years he was an All-American on the course.” There are many reasons Jonathan Byrd had such an outstanding career at Clemson on the course and in the classroom, but his biggest asset was his family support system. First, there was his brother, Jordan, now an assistant coach under Penley at Clemson. Jordan Byrd was three years ahead of Jonathan as a college golfer at Furman and he was a trailblazer as to the proper way to do things on the course and in the classroom. Then there were his parents, Jim and Jo Byrd. They were very supportive number-one. I personally walked a lot of holes with Mr. and Mrs. Byrd and there could not be two finer parents. Jim Byrd was a college athlete himself as a college football player at North Carolina in the early 1960s. If you want to know where Jonathan gets his mental toughness, just remember this story. At the opening kickoff of the 1965 North Carolina at Notre Dame game, Byrd suffered a broken nose after he was tackled. But, he got bandaged up and played the rest of the game with that broken nose. Now, Byrd continues that success professionally thanks to the support of his wife Amanda and their three children, Jackson and Caroline. Byrd has gone on to win five PGA Tour events, all with incredible low scores. He has won the five events with an average score of 22-under-par. Just 10 years into his career, he has already won nearly $15 million. Byrd’s victory total, more than any other former Tiger on Tour, is no surprise to Penley, who continues to benefit from his former player’s success. “Jonathan’s induction into the Clemson Ring of Honor, is well deserved and it shows how much he has meant to this program over the years, not just the time when he played. “We still use the same practice drills in the short game area and putting that he used when he played here. Many of his accomplishments have yet to be duplicated when it comes to on the course and in the classroom. “And, today the way he handles himself on the PGA Tour, he is just the consummate professional and is someone our current players look up to. Our players aspire to be like him as an all-around student-athlete. He is the standard.”


Clemson Golf Coach Larry Penley cringed as D.J. Trahan addressed the media on the eve of the first round of the 2003 NCAA Golf Championship. Local and national media outlets (and there were many for the week of golf at Karsten Creek in Stillwater, OK) hung on every word uttered by Clemson’s senior team leader and two-time first-team All-American. It was a statement that was to the point, and put the week in perspective, at least from Trahan’s perspective, for Clemson. “Anything here but a win would be a huge disappointment,” said Trahan to a group of interested writers and broadcasters. “This tournament is all that matters.” Typical of his game on the course, Trahan had a “go for broke” attitude off of it. Looking back, it might have been what the Tigers needed from their team leader. No Clemson team had had a player previously who would make such a statement prior to a national championship. Clemson had many close calls, but had never walked away with the championship trophy either. “I came back to Clemson for my senior year with the goal of winning the National Championship,” said Trahan. “We had the talent to do it, that was our goal from day one in September. Had we not won, I would have been very disappointed.” While Trahan’s accomplishments on the course over his four years were remarkable, his leadership off the course might have been just as important. His performance and team leadership were both significant factors in Clemson’s run to a national championship. “D.J.Trahan was a player who could carry a team on his shoulders on the course, but he could also carry a team with his leadership,” said Head Coach Larry Penley. “D.J. could have gone pro after his junior year. He had won the Jack Nicklaus Award and the Ben Hogan Award as a junior and was the number-one ranked amateur in the nation. His stroke average had been among the top 10 in NCAA history. The only thing that was lacking on his resume was the national championship. The fact that he came back was the ultimate sacrifice for our team and Clemson University. He put his individual goals aside for the team.” Trahan not only had the respect of his coach, but of his teammates as well. “D.J. Trahan never accepted second place individually or for this team,” said Matt Hendrix. “He always pushed the team hard and he pushed himself. He was our team leader all season.” His senior year closed one of the most noteworthy careers in Clemson history, a career that future Clemson golfers will use for a measuring stick. And, that is saying something for a program that had 34 All-American selections in the previous 14 years. As mentioned previously,Trahan was the national player of the year as a junior, then led the Tigers to a national championship as a senior. He joined former Clemson soccer star and Herman Award winner Bruce Murray (1984-87) as the only athletes in Clemson history to start on a national championship Clemson team and win a National Player of the Year Award over the course of a career. Trahan left Clemson with 21 school records, including career stroke average (71.49),career stroke average in NCAA Tournament play (71.56), single season stroke average (70.33 in 2001-02), career rounds in the 60s (45), and career rounds at par or better (98). When it came to getting to the winner’s circle for Clemson as a team, or individually in national amateur events, few Tigers have come close. Clemson won 12 team tournaments in his four years, including two NCAA East Regional titles, two ACC titles and of course the National Championship. Clemson became the first school in NCAA history to win a conference championship, a regional title and the national championship in the same year. Trahan won five tournaments individually, tying the school record also held by former All-American Chris Patton. He was the United States Public Links Champion

in 2000, won the South Carolina Amateur twice, the Jones Cup in 2001, and the Monroe Invitational in 2002. Each of his last two seasons he finished the year ranked second in the Golfweek/Sagarin computer rankings, the highest final rankings ever by a Clemson golfer in those computer rankings. He was a two-time IPTAY Athlete of the Year winner, which also considers the student side of the studentathlete equation. Trahan excelled in that area also. Trahan was named to the ACC Academic Honor roll all four years he played for Clemson and was a third-team Academic All-American in 2001-02. He became the 13th athlete in Clemson history to be named an All-American on the field and in the classroom in the same year. “D.J. set a standard that might last for a long time,” said Penley. “I hope that is not the case, I hope future Clemson golfers will follow his lead and raise the bar.” The 2002-03 academic year was certainly a magic year for Trahan and the Clemson golf program. It will be an experience that Trahan remembers for a long time. After the Tigers won the championship Trahan just sat down on the green, cell phone in hand, where he called family members who could not make the trip (his parents, uncle and sister were in Oklahoma). He was the picture of contentment. When it came right down to it, winning the team championship was all D.J. ever wanted from his senior year. The success has continued for Trahan professionally. He earned his 2005 PGA Tour Card through Q-School. As a rookie on Tour in 2005, Trahan retained his card with a 103rd place finish on the money list. He had seven top 25 finishes.    In 2006 he won his first PGA tournament when he captured the Southern Farm Bureau Classic in Mississippi in a playoff. He won over $1 million for the season. In January of 2008, he won his second PGA Tour event with a 26-under-par score at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic in Palm Springs, CA. The victory qualified him for the 2008 Masters.

Kyle Stanley Former Clemson All-American Kyle Stanley overcame an eight-shot deficit entering the final round and won the 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open. Stanley had a 72-hole score of 269, a 15-under par score on the par 71 TPC of Scottsdale Course. Stanley had rounds of 69-66-69-65 in winning $1,098,000, his biggest check as a professional. With the victory he moved to first place on the PGA Tour money list with $1,793,575 through four events. He also took the lead in Fed Ex Cup points and was third on the Tour in stroke average with a 69.13 average. On Sunday, in shooting a 65, Stanley had six birdies and 12 pars. He hit 16 of 18 greens, giving him 57 of 72 greens for the week. He won by one shot over Ben Crane, who shot a 66 on Sunday and finished with a 270 score. Spencer Levin, who had a six-shot lead on the field, including eight shots over Stanley entering the final round, finished third at 13-under-par 271. Stanley was tied for fifth at nine under par entering the final round. Former Clemson All-American D.J. Trahan shot a 66 on Sunday and finished fourth with a 272 score. Trahan had a 64 on Saturday and his 130 score was the best in the tournament on the weekend, even four shots better than Stanley. Stanley overcame an eight-shot deficit entering the final round. It tied for the third best comeback in the history of the PGA Tour and was the best since Craig Stadler overcame an eight-shot deficit entering the final round of the 2003 BC Open. Stanley was the story of professional golf for the first month of the 2012 season. He had a five-shot lead entering the final round of the Farmer’s Insurance Open in San Diego the previous weekend, and had a seven-shot lead in the middle of the final round. But he made an eight on the last hole, then lost in a playoff to Brent Snedeker. But, one week later Stanley was in the winner’s circle holding a check of more than $1 million. “I got a lot of messages from Clemson people last week,” Stanley said after his victory. “They’ve been very supportive. That’s the reason I went to Clemson. I knew that their program would best prepare me to get out here (PGA Tour), and I’m a Tiger for life.” With Stanley’s victory, a former Clemson golfer has won at least one tournament on the PGA Tour each of the last nine years, the longest active streak for any school. Arizona State and UNLV could tie the Tigers if one of their former players wins an event later this year. Stanley’s win will give him an invitation to the Masters in April. That will give Clemson four players in the Masters for the first time. Lucas Glover qualified earlier by virtue of his 2009 US Open Championship. Jonathan Byrd had already qualified by his top 30 finish on the Fed Ex Cup list last year. Current Clemson golfer Corbin Mills received an invitation by winning the 2011 US Public Links Championship. Stanley is the youngest former Clemson golfer to win a PGA event. Born on November 19, 1987, Stanley is 24 years, two months and 17 days. Jonathan Byrd was the previous youngest former Tiger to win on the Tour. He was 24 years and nine months when he won the 2002 Buick Challenge. The native of the state of Washington had an outstanding rookie year on the PGA Tour. He finished 34th in the final Fed Ex Cup standings, missing the Tour Championship by just three spots. He ranked third on the PGA Tour among rookies in the Fed Ex Cup standings. He finished the year 55th on the PGA Tour money list, second best finish by a former Clemson golfer in his rookie season. Stanley was an All-American at Clemson between 2006-09. He was a first-team All-American as a freshman and a junior when he finished second at the NCAA Championships both years. He helped Clemson to a number-five national team finish in 2008, his sophomore year.

Tigers on Tour in 2011 It was another successful year for former Clemson players on the PGA Tour in 2011. Seven former Tigers who played in PGA Tour events combined to win over $14 million. Lucas Glover and Jonathan Byrd, former Clemson teammates, both won PGA Tour events, the first time two different former Tigers have won a PGA Tour event in the same year. They also competed against each other in a playoff for the Wells Fargo Invitational in Charlotte in May, a playoff that brought more attention to the Clemson program than any other event in history.

Lucas Glover won the Wachovia Championship in Charlotte in a playoff against former Clemson teammate Jonathan Byrd

Four former Tigers were fully exempt on the PGA Tour in 2011 and they combined for 25 top 10 finishes, 40 top 25 finishes and $14.78 million. Four former Tigers finished the year in the top 125 and thus qualified automatically for the 2012 PGA Tour. Plus Tommy Biershenk finished fifth at the PGA Tour Qualifying school, giving Clemson five fully exempt players on the PGA Tour for 2012. The highlight of the year took place in May at the Wells Fargo Invitational. Glover won the event in a onehole playoff with Byrd after Byrd had made a 15 foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to force the playoff. When he made the putt, Jim Nantz said on the CBS broadcast, “And, welcome to the Clemson Invitational.” Glover and Byrd played together three years at Clemson, 1998, 1999 and 2000 and they helped Clemson to three consecutive top 10 finishes in that time period, including a national runner-up finish in 1998. They have played over 100 rounds of golf together over the years. The two Clemson graduates have both been inducted into the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame. It marked the first time that two Clemson golfers finished in first and second place at the same PGA Tour event. It was the first PGA Tour victory for Glover since he won the US Open at Bethpage Back in 2009, and it was his third PGA Tour victory overall. Byrd had won five times on the PGA Tour, including twice within the last seven months in playoffs, the Justin Timberlake Invitational in Las Vegas last October and the Hyundai Invitational in Maui in January. Glover won $1,152,000 with the victory in Charlotte, his second largest check as a professional golfer. He won $1,350,000 when he won the 2009 US Open.

On the playoff hole (#18), Byrd hit his drive into a sand trap on the right side of the fairway, while Glover hit his drive in the middle of the fairway. Byrd’s second shot was hit left of the green, just outside a creek that runs alongside the green. Glover hit his second shot 25 feet past the pin, but on the green. With a difficult down hill lie and the creek in front of him, Byrd hit his third shot 20 feet past the pin. He then barely missed the putt and finished with a bogey five. Glover then two-putted to win the tournament. A crowd filled with Clemson fans, yelled the “CLEM in Cadence” cheer as the two men hugged each other on the 18th green.

A record five former Clemson golfers made the cut. D.J. Trahan finished 33rd with a 283 score, Kyle Stanley finished 45th with a 284 score and Charles Warren finished 48th with a 285 score. There were many other highlights during the season for former Tigers. D.J. Trahan shot an eight-under par 62 in the second round of the Traveler’s Championship at Cromwell, CT. Trahan’s round tied for the low round by a former Clemson golfer on the PGA Tour. Trahan’s round included eight birdies and 10 pars. Stanley finished with rounds of 65-67-65-66 in recording his score of 21 under par 263. He was the only player in the field to shoot 67 or better in every round, yet he did not win the tournament.The second place finish was the best of his career on the PGA Tour. Not all the highlights for former Tigers were on the PGA Tour. Former Clemson golfer Michael Hoey won the Madeira Islands Open in Madeira, Portugal in April, then won the Dunhill Cup in September. He won the event by two shots over US Open Champion Rory McIlroy. Hoey finished the year 25th on the European Tour, by far the best by any former Tiger on that tour.

Overview

The sport of golf at Clemson University dates to 1930. Clemson posted a 3-3 record in year one, including a victory over Furman and two over Presbyterian, while dropping matches with Georgia, Emory, and Furman. That first edition of the Clemson golf team was coached by the Reverend George Hodges, minister of the Methodist Church in Clemson. The next 45 years saw many dual match victories, including a 19-match victory streak in the 1940s, but Clemson golf did not reach regional or national prominence until the 1970s. A renewed interest in all of Clemson’s Olympic sports, spearheaded by then Athletic Director Bill McLellan, allowed for increased funding for the golf team. As the decade of the 80’s rolled around, Tiger golf found itself even with many of the traditional Southern powers. Now, Clemson is a national challenger every season. Clemson made 23 consecutive appearances at the NCAA National Tournament from 1982-04 and has been invited to the tournament every year since 1982. Since 1982, Clemson has finished in the top 20 nationally 21 times, including nine top five finishes and the National Championship in 2003. Former Athletic Director Bobby Robinson can be considered the man responsible for turning the program into a consistent national contender. During his 10-season reign as coach (1974-1983), Robinson guided the Tigers to some of their greatest triumphs. His accomplishments include being the first coach to take a Tiger team to the NCAA’s, producing a pair of All-Americans, nine All-ACC selections and three top 20 teams. Much of Clemson’s modern day success can be attributed to the foundation that Robinson built. Before Robinson’s tenure, no Tiger team had ever won an ACC championship and just one Tiger linkster had ever appeared in the NCAA individual tournament. In 1955 Leonard Yaun became the first Clemson golfer to play in the NCAA Tournament. HIs playing partner the first day was a Stanford Athlete named John Brodie, who went on to pro football fame with the San Francisco 49ers.

The ‘70s and ‘80s Clemson had success on the links in the mid-1970’s. Jim White played in the NCAA Tournament, followed by Parker Moore, who became Clemson’s first ACC medalist. That summer of 1976, Moore also reached the finals of the U.S. Amateur and played in the 1977 Masters. Clemson received its first ever top 20 ranking (12th) by Golf World in March of 1978. Clemson was chosen for the NCAAs as a team for the first time in 1980 behind All-American Clarence Rose. Clemson took home its first ACC team championship in 1982. The linksters enjoyed their greatest success up to that time in 1983, when they fired their way to a fifth-place finish at the NCAA’s. Finding themselves in 22nd place after the first round,

the Tigers, led by Dillard Pruitt and Julian Taylor, pulled off a fantastic finish. They ended up fifth, as the Tiger’s averaged 290 over the final three days at San Juaquin Country Club in Fresno, CA. Taylor finished the tournament ranked 15th and Charles Raulerson, who played on the PGA Tour, finished 20th. Norman Chapman, Dillard Pruitt and Tony Nimmer comprised the remainder of Clemson’s first ever top 5 finisher. Before leaving the Golden Corner of South Carolina all but Raulerson would earn All-ACC honors, and Pruitt became Clemson’s first two-time All- American. He finished 13th in the NCAA tournament in 1984, then the highest finish ever for a Clemson golfer. Following the 1983 season, Robinson left the team to pursue athletic administration on a full time basis. He became Clemson’s Athletic Director in 1985. Larry Penley, a former all-conference performer for Robinson, then took over the reigns. With a number-19 finish in 1984, the former fouryear letterman became only the second coach in Clemson athletic history to guide a team to a top 20 season in his first year. The year was highlighted by seven top 5 finishes and two all-conference selections (Dillard Pruitt and Norman Chapman). Pruitt was an All-American. Following trips to the NCAA’s in 1985 and ’86, the Tiger linksters began making great strides. In Penley’s fourth year at the helm, the Tigers walked away winners at the Palmetto Classic, the Gamecock Invitational, and the ACC Championships. This marked the first time in history that the Tigers had won three tournaments in the same season. Clemson placed 11th at the NCAA’s, and Penley was named the 1987 ACC and District III Coach-of-the-year. The 1987 record did not stand for long, as theTigers won four tourneys in 1988 (the Palmetto Invitational, Wofford Intercollegiate,ACC Championships, and the Chris Schenkel Invitational). The season was highlighted by a midseason number 3 ranking and featured for the first time ever three All-ACC players (Kevin Johnson, Chris Patton and Oswald Drawdy). Johnson was a repeat performer as an All-American, while sophomore Chris Patton was a second-team choice. Continuing the trend of improving yearly, the 1989 Tigers were the preseason number-one team in the country, and finished with a 72.62 stroke average. The season culminated with a best ever number-three finish at the NCAA’s. The ’89 team was led by All-Americans Kevin Johnson and Chris Patton and first-team Academic All-American Oswald Drawdy. The triplet also repeated as All-ACC performers. Johnson would have won the individual national championship, but a controversy over the signing of his scorecard on the second day of competition resulted in a round of 69 being voided. Individual play brought attention to the Clemson program in the summer of 1989. Chris Patton won the US Amatuer championship at Merion Country Club inArdmore,PA. Patton won the last of six matches over Danny Green 3 and 1 in the finals. He became the second Tiger to compete in the Master’s, (Parker Moore was the other in 1977) finishing as the low amateur and 39th overall in the prestigious event. Patton also competed in the US Open and the British Open in 1990.

Clemson first fielded a golf team in 1930 when local minister, George Hodges, served as coach.

Golf History 1990 - 1994

The 1990 linksters became the fourth straight top 20 Tiger team with a top 12 finish. Chris Patton was a firstteam All-American, Oswald Drawdy a third-team choice, and freshman Danny Ellis garnered honorable mention honors with an eighth place finish at the NCAA’s, the highest finish ever for a Clemson player at the time. The next three years of the 90’s were dominated by Bobby Doolittle, Nicky Goetze, and Danny Ellis. They started all four years, led the Tigers to four top 20 finishes, including fourth in 1993. The trio combined to win five medalist honors in their four years and the Tigers won 11 team titles in their careers. Goetze was a three-time All-ACC selection, while teammates Ellis and Doolittle were selected twice each for the honor. Upon graduation, all three ranked in the top 10 in Clemson history in stroke average. Danny Ellis was ACC Champion in 1992, was a three-time All-American, and ranked seventh in stroke average at the end of his career. He also reached the finals of the 1993 U.S. Amateur. Clemson’s incredible depth was highlighted in 1993 NCAA Tournament play, as the Tigers took the NCAA East Regional and finished fourth in the NCAA. Doolittle led the team to its first ever East Regional title. He finished second individually, the best ever by a Tiger at that event at the time. It was a fourth, lesser known senior who led the Tigers to the number four finish at the Champions Country Club in Lexington, KY. Thump Delk, who had never broken par in his career and played in only five tournaments all season, fired rounds of 71-71-73-72 totaling 287, one-under-par for the four round NCAA tournament and finished third. Mark Swygert finished seventh overall, one stroke behind Delk. The duo’s performance garnered them honorable mention All-America awards. Therefore, five Clemson golfers earned some type of All-America honors in 1993. This was a first in Clemson history and possibly a first in Division I golf history. The 1994 season saw the Tiger’s again claim the East Regional with a team effort. Mark Swygert fired a third round 67 to finish the tournament in a tie for first place. He became Clemson’s first Regional medalist. Coach Penley also received rounds in the 60s from Richard Coughlan and Tommy Biershenk to lead the Tigers to the championship. Swygert tied the Clemson record for low finish in an NCAA tournament with a third-place 11-under par effort. Clemson finished the event in ninth place as a team, marking the fourth top 10 finish in Clemson history in NCAA play.

1995 - 1999 Winning the East Regional became a habit for the Tigers in 1995 as they claimed their third straight championship. Led by 213 tournament totals from Richard Coughlan and Mike Byce, the Tiger’s won the regional by 12 strokes over ACC rival North Carolina. The 1996 team earned quite a few individual honors. At the ACC Tournament, head coach Larry Penley was named ACC Coach-of-the-Year for the second time in his career. Richard Coughlan, Joey Maxon, and Charles Warren were tabbed as All-ACC selections. For the fifth time since 1988, three Clemson players were picked as All-Americans. Warren was a third team pick, while Coughlan and Maxon were honorable mention selections. The spring of 1997 was a noteworthy season on an individual and team basis. Charles Warren came back from a six-stroke deficit entering the final round and won the NCAA Tournament, the first Clemson golfer in history to win the National Championship. The native of Columbia fired a 67 on the final day, the lowest final round ever for a Clemson golfer in NCAA Tournament play. He then defeated Brad Elder of Texas in a one-hole playoff. Warren also won the ACCTournament, and thus became the second league player in history to win the ACC and NCAA tournaments in the same year. He also finished second at the NCAA East Regional in one of the greatest individual late season runs in Clemson history.

Golf History Clemson Yearly Team Statistics Charles Warren won an NCAA Championship in 1997.

Richard Coughlan joined Warren on the first-team AllAmerica squad, the first time Clemson had two first-team selections. Coughlan, who earned his degree in 1997, finished sixth at the NCAAs and was named ACC Co-Player of the Year in a vote of the coaches. The duo was the prime reason Clemson finished third at the NCAA tournament, tying for the highest finish in school history. Joey Maxon, Elliot Gealy and Jonathan Byrd were the other three starters on this team that also won the Ping Intercollegiate and the ACC Championship. Byrd became the first freshman in Clemson history to be recognized as first-team All-ACC. The 1997-98 season was the most successful in Clemson golf history by many means of measurement. First, Larry Penley’s team finished #2 in the nation at the NCAA national tournament, Clemson’s highest finish in history at the time. Clemson shot a 31-under-par team score for the event, the second best team score in NCAA National Tournament history. Unfortunately, UNLV shot the lowest tournament score versus par in history, 34-under. Despite the disappointment of finishing just three strokes from a National Championship, Penley and his team could take great joy in their accomplishments, both on an individual and team basis. The team won the ACC Tournament title for the second straight year and Charles Warren was ACC Champion for the second straight year. Warren concluded his Clemson career with two ACC championships, an NCAATitle (1997) and the runnerup spot at the NCAA championship (1998). He finished his career with 16 Clemson school records, including, lowest stroke average in a season (71.28) and most rounds under par in a season (23). Warren was named the recipient of the Dave Williams Award, which is given to the top senior golfer in the nation. Joey Maxon had a superb senior season and finished 10th at the NCAA Tournament. It gave him All-America honors for the second time in his career. Jonathan Byrd joined Warren and Maxon on the All-ACC team. Byrd became the first player in Clemson history to be first-team All-ACC as a freshman and sophomore. Clemson was in tournaments with 21 of the top 24

That included national champion UNLV who was seven strokes higher in the five tournaments they competed in 1997-98. Coach Larry Penley was rewarded with ACC Coach of the Year honors, the third consecutive year he has won that award. He became the first golf coach in ACC history to win the honor three straight years. Penley’s Tigers set school season records for stroke average (71.59), rounds under par (80), top 10 finishes (24) and first or second place team finishes (9). Clemson had a top 10 NCAA finish for the third straight year in 1998-99, the first time in the history of the program that Clemson had put three straight top 10s together. Along the way Clemson won a record tying five tournaments, including a record three in the fall. One of the victories was at the San Juan Shootout in February in Puerto Rico. Clemson fired a record breaking 34-under-par for the event and had a record low 830 team score. Clemson was ranked number-one in the nation for most of the year. The season concluded with an eighth-place finish out of the 30 teams at the NCAA Tournament at Hazeltine National in Minnesota. Clemson had the lead after 36 holes, the first time the Tigers had a lead at the end of any round in NCAA play.

honorable mention selection. Byrd was also a first-team AllAmerican in the classroom, becoming the seventh Clemson athlete in history to be first team All-American on the field of competition and in the classroom, in the same year.

1999 - 2002 The preseason polls for 1999-00 saw the Tigers ranked #1 in the nation. The Tigers did not win the national championship at season’s end, but did have many landmark performances. Among the team highlights were championships at the ACC Tournament and the NCAA East Regional. It was the sixth ACC title and fourth regional crown for Larry Penley, but the first time the Tigers won both in the same year. Clemson also won its third straight Jerry Pate Intercollegiate in the fall.

In 2000, Clemson won both the ACC Tournament and NCAA East Region titles.


Golf History

Clemson’s 2003 National Championship team The season concluded with a seventh-place finish at the NCAAs at Auburn, the fourth straight top 10 finish for Clemson. Lucas Glover had a Clemson record 71.24 average for the year and was named first-team All-American. John Engler was a second-team selection, Jonathan Byrd was a third-team choice and D.J.Trahan, Clemson’s top performer at the NCAAs with a 15th-place finish, was honorable mention and was a freshman All-American. Byrd was also named a first-team Academic AllAmerican, the second straight year he was an All-American on the course and in the classroom. The 1999-00 season also included Clemson’s first two hole in one shots in competition in the school’s history. John Engler (Ping Preview) and Michael Hoey (The Ridges) both accomplished the feat. In the summer of 2000, D.J. Trahan won the United States Public Links Championship, and earned an invitation to the 2001 Masters. Clemson recorded a fifth straight Top-10 NCAA finish and second, second-place ranking in a four year period with its performance at the 2001 NCAA Championships held at Duke University. Clemson finished in the top five in every event in the 2000-01 Academic Year, including team honors at the Jerry Pate Intercollegiate for the fourth straight year. Lucas Glover and John Engler concluded their careers as first-team All-Americans. Each was named All-ACC for the third straight year and each won a tournament, Glover the San Juan Shootout and Engler the ACC Tournament. D.J.Trahan was All-ACC and earned Honorable Mention All-American honors with an seventh-place finish at the NCAA’s. Clemson was supposed to have a relatively down year in 2001-02 with the loss of three starters, including AllAmericans Lucas Glover and John Engler, a pair of four-year starters. But, the Tigers road the back of D.J. Trahan early in the season, then showed its ability as a strong team when it came to postseason play. The Tigers won the Ping Preview in September when Trahan birdied the final hole to give the Tigers a thrilling team victory. Trahan won three events for the year, the first Clemson golfer to do that. His final victory came at the NCAA East Regional, helping the Tigers to a co-championship as a team. The fine play continued at Ohio State in the National Championships as Clemson finished tied for third. Clemson held the lead after the second round, the second time in

history Clemson had the lead at the midway point of the national championships. At the conclusion of the season,Trahan was named the National Player of the Year, winning the Jack Nicklaus and Ben Hogan awards. His 70.33 stroke average was eighth best in NCAA history for a single season. Gregg Jones was named a second-team All-American.

A Championship Season Clemson achieved the ultimate golf team accomplishment in 2003, winning the NCAA National Championship at Karsten Creek in Stillwater, OK. It was a dominating season for the Tigers, as they claimed six tournament trophies, a school record. In addition, Clemson became the first team in NCAA history to sweep conference, regional, and national tournaments. The Tigers went wire-to-wire as the nation’s No. 1 ranked team. The National Champions were led by threeAll-Americans. D.J. Trahan capped his brilliant career with first-team AllAmerica honors. He also was named first-team All-ACC for the fourth consecutive year, joining Jonathan Byrd as the only four-time All-ACC selections in school history. Jack Ferguson was a second-team All-American, after appearing in only a handful of tournaments as a freshman in 2001-02. His birdie putt on the last hole won the ACC Championship, then his par on the 72nd hole clinched the NCAA title. Matt Hendrix was a third-teamAll-American andVerizonAcademic All-District selection. Gregg Jones, another starter for the entire year, was a first-team All-ACC selection. Ben Duncan, the fifth starter on the championship squad, rounded out his Clemson career with a strong showing in the NCAAs. At the conclusion of the season, Larry Penley was named the National Coach-of-the-Year. Clemson finished the year 183-8-3 in head to head competition.

any other college golf team. Greg Jones shot a four-underpar 66 in the final round and Brent Delahoussaye finished fourth individually for the 54 holes to lead the Tigers to the victory on the Yale University Golf Course. It was the fourth straight year Jones finished in the top 15 at the NCAA regional, a first in Clemson golf history. The Tigers advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the 23rd consecutive year and finished 18th overall in the 30-team field that competed at The Homestead in Virginia. After the tournament, Matt Hendrix, who had started the year competing at the Walker Cup for the United States team, was named a second-team All-American long with teammate Jack Ferguson. Clemson returned to the NCAA National Tournament and the Nation’s Elite teams with a Top 10 finish in 2006. Led by senior All-ACC player Brian Duncan and Stephen Poole, the Tigers finished seventh at the NCAA Tournament at Sunriver, OR. The balanced 2006 team had six different players record a Top 10 finish in 2006. Clemson’s 2006-07 season featured the play of Kyle Stanley, who had the top freshman season in Clemson history. The native of Gig Harbor, Washington was a First-Team All American,ACC Player of the Year,ACC Freshman of the Year, and finished second at the NCAA National Tournament. The 2007-08 season, Larry Penley’s 25th as head coach, saw Clemson return to the Top 5 at the NCAA Championships, a first for the program since 2003. The Tigers finished third at the NCAA West Regional in the program’s first appearance at West. Kyle Stanley had his second straight Top 10 at the NCAA Championship with a 7th place finish at Purdue’s Kampen Course. The 2009-10 era saw a Clemson player win the Ben Hogan Award, another Clemson player reach the finals of the US Amateur and a former Tiger win the United States Open. Kyle Stanley won the Ben Hogan Award in May of 2009 for his first team All-America performance at Clemson and his outstanding amateur record. He finished second at the 2009 NCAA Championships in late May. Lucas Glover won the US Open in June, 2009 by two shots, as he withstood a final round run by Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. He became the first former Tiger to win a professional major. In August of 2009, Ben Martin, a rising senior at Clemson, was the runner up at the US Amateur. That performance got him into the 2010 Masters and the 2010 US Open. Martin led Clemson to a second-place finish at the NCAA Regional and a 16th place team finish at the NCAA Finals at The Honors Course in Chattanooga. Martin and Stanley completed 2010 by qualifying for the PGA Tour in 2011 with outstanding performances at the Qualifying Tournament in December. Martin finished second and Stanley finished 16th. Corbin Mills burst on the national scene in the summer of 2011 when he won the United States Public Links Championship and the Players Amateur. The Public Links title gave him an invitation to the 2012 Masters. He won the stroke play qualifier and the match play at the Public Links, the first golfer to win both in the same year since 2000 when D.J. Trahan did it.

2004-present Clemson continued its championship tradition in 2004 when the Tigers won both the ACC Tournament and the NCAA East Regional. The Tigers used a 10-under-par team round in the final round of the ACC Tournament to win the event for the eighth time under Head Coach Larry Penley. The win at the 2004 NCAA East Regional was the seventh in history for the Clemson program, more than
