Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor a remarkable achievement. In May of this year, the Clemson Tigers men s golf team from my great state of South Carolina won the NCAA Division I golf championship in dramatic fashion, edging out the Oklahoma State Cowboys by two strokes on their own course.
The team was led by Senior D.J. Trahan, the number one ranked college golfer for much of this year, and Sophomore Jack Ferguson, who was
ranked in the top 25 for most of the year.th with a team best four round 298. Also anchoring the team were Junior Matt Hendrix, Junior
Gregg Jones, and Senior Ben Duncan, who finished tied for 35th, 35th, and 52nd respectively.
My hat goes off to Coach Larry Penley and the entire squad for their remarkable 124-8-3 record this year, and for bringing Clemson their first ever national golf championship. They have made our state very proud.
On top of their golf achievements, I am proud that each of these young men will leave with a Clemson academic degree. With that background, I am sure they will be as successful in life as they have been in golf.
