Glover, Engler Finish First And Third, Respectively At Sunnehanna Amateur

June 10, 2001

Clemson, S.C. — Former Clemson golfer Lucas Glover won the Sunnehanna Amateur Sunday with a score of nine-under-par 271. It was a major victory for the Greenville, SC native, who enhanced his chances of making the United States Walker Cup team with the victory.

Glover defeated Chris Mundorf, who played for NC State this past year, by three shots. Former Clemson All-American John Engler, who combined with Glover to help lead the Tigers to a second-place finish at the NCAA Tournament last week, was third at three-under-par. He had rounds of 66-72-68-71 in scoring the 277. Clemson sophomore D.J. Trahan also competed in the prestigious event and finished 31st at 10-over-par.

Glover had rounds of 68-65-70-68 in recording his 271 total on the 6716-yard par 70 course. Glover and Mundorf had started the day tied for the lead at seven-under-par. But, Glover played consistent golf on Sunday, while Mundorf bogeyed each of the last two holes. The two players were tied after 16 holes.

Glover and Engler will now prepare to represent the United States in the Palmer Cup in two weeks at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey, June 27-28.
