Twelve professional golfers with ties to Clemson have competed on the BUY.com or PGA Tours in 2002. The list is led by Jonathan Byrd, who is currently 75th on the PGA Tour money list. He finished third in Greensboro and eighth at the Colonial in Fort Worth, TX on May 19. The rookie on the PGA Tour was a two-time All-American at Clemson from 1996-00.

Charles Warren, a former teammate of Byrd at Clemson in 1997 and 1998, is sixth on the BUY.com Tour in money earned with $115,872. He won the BUY.com event at the Cliffs in Travelers Rest, SC in April. Lucas Glover, another member of Clemson’s 1998 team that finished second at the NCAA Tournament, finished third at the BUY.com event in Raleigh on May 19 and is now 56th on the BUY.com money list with $26,100. Tommy Biershenk recently finished third in a BUY.com event and is now 27th on that tour’s list.

The list of former Tigers on Tour below includes Jeff Julian, a student at Clemson from 1979-82 who never played in an event for the Tigers, but did participate in practice. He has played in six events on the PGA Tour on sponsors exemptions. He is suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease.
