Tiger Golf Signs Two State Champions

Zack Siefert and Tanner Ervin have signed letters of intent to play golf at Clemson beginning in August of 2003, according to Head Coach Larry Penley.

Siefert and Ervin, are the last two South Carolina 4A State Champions. The signings will continue to give Clemson a golf roster that features all players from the state of South Carolina. Clemson won the National Championship in May with an all South Carolina roster.

Siefert is a native of nearby Simpsonville, SC and attended Hillcrest High School. He has had a highly decorated junior record over the past few years. He began his list of accomplishments in 2000 by setting a tournament record in winning the North Augusta Jr. Invitational.

As a sophomore, Siefert finished second in the 2001 4A State Championship. He also finished second in the South Carolina Match Play that same summer. In 2002, he won the Players Championship and South Carolina Junior Championship. Siefert, a 4A All-State selection as a junior, was honored as the Jay Haas South Carolina Player-of-the-Year.

Siefert's senior year was highlighted by a victory in the 2003 4A State Championship. He finished his high school career as a five-time all-region honoree as well.

Ervin, a native of Mt. Pleasant, SC, attended Wando High School. Like Siefert, Ervin won the Players Championship (2001). In 2002, he won the Junior Rice Planters Tournament. His major prize that season was capturing individual honors at the 2002 4A State Championship.

Ervin was an All-State selection in 2002 and was also honored as the 4A Player-of-the-Year that same season. Ervin, who has been Wando's team MVP for the past three years, was a six-time all-region selection.
