Proveaux Leads East to Victory at Wyndham Cup

CLEMSON, SC – Cody Proveaux, who will enroll at Clemson in less than a month, sank a 10-foot par putt that allowed the East team to retain the Wyndham Cup for the second consecutive year.  The 23rd annual junior amateur event was held in Orlando, FL at Bay Hill, the site of the PGA Tour’s Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Proveaux had to make the putt to win the 18th hole and halve his match against the West team’s Brad Dalke.  When he halved the match, it tied the overall team score at 25-25 and thus allowed the East team to retain the Cup.

The Wyndham Cup is a national junior golf competition that brings the top 40 junior players in the United States to a match play competition.  Each team is composed of 10 men and 10 women.  When Proveaux made his putt he was mobbed on the green by his teammates.

Proveaux was the Rolex National Junior Player of the Year last year when he won the Junior PGA by making a long par putt on the last hole.  He is expected to be a big contributor to the Clemson golf team of 2012-13, which must replace starters Corbin Mills and McCuen Elmore.

This was Proveaux’s last junior amateur event.
