April 26, 2002

Clemson, SC – Five players with connections to Clemson have made the cut at this week’s BUY.com Tour event at Travelers Rest, SC. The list of players making the cut include former Clemson National Champion Charles Warren and current Clemson junior D.J. Trahan.

Warren fired a 65 on Friday and stands in third place with a 132 total after two rounds. His day included birdies on seven of the last 13 holes. Trahan shot a 70 on Friday and is at six-under-par through two rounds. Trahan scored a bogey on his final hole, but did have an eagle three on the par-five sixth hole.

Other former Tigers who made the cut were Charles Raulerson (140), John Engler (140) and Kevin Johnson (140). Johnson shot a 66 on Friday afternoon to make the cut by one shot. Engler was at six under par at one point, but scored bogies on three of the last five holes. All five of those players will be in action at The Cliffs Valley Course on Saturday.

Failing to make the cut were former Clemson players Joey Maxon (144), Lucas Glover (145), Tommy Biershenk (148) and Mike Lawrence (152).

At the Greater Greensboro Open, former Tiger Jonathan Byrd birdied two of the last three holes to make the cut at one-under par. Byrd, who won the BMW BUY.com at Travelers Rest last year, stands at 143 through two rounds, 53rd. Richard Coughlan (148), Danny Ellis (149) and Jeff Julian (154) were former Tigers who failed to make the cut at Greensboro.
