Clemson Seventh After First Round in Las Vegas

March 9, 2002

Las Vegas, NV – Ben Duncan was the only Clemson player to shoot even par golf during the first round of the Las Vegas Invitational. The 15-team event features 10 of the top 25 teams in the nation and is being played at the Southern Highlands Golf Course in Las Vegas. Clemson stands in a tie for seventh place with Arizona and TCU at 293. Clemson is only six shots off the pace set by number-one ranked Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets have won two tournaments already this spring and have a one-shot lead over Florida, Georgia and UNLV. New Mexico and NC State are tied for fifth at 291, followed by the Tigers.

Clark Corbett and Brien Davis of UNLV lead the event individually with opening rounds of 68. Matt Hendrix supported Duncan with a 73, good enough for 21st place. Duncan stands tied for 13th. Freshman Martin Catalioto had his best round of the year with a 74, while sophomore Gregg Jones also shot a 74.

D.J. Trahan, the number-one ranked player in the nation and the winner of this event two years ago, had a 76 in the opening round. It ended his streak of 20 consecutive rounds at 72 or better and it was the first round all year his score did not count towards the Clemson team score.

Competition in the three-day event continues on Saturday and Sunday.
