Clemson, SC – Clemson rising junior D.J. Trahan won the South Carolina Amateur Sunday with a four-day score of 279, nine-under par. He defeated three-time defending champion Lucas Glover, who was a senior at Clemson last season. Both players will now go to Sea Island, GA and compete for the United States team in the Walker Cup.

Trahan shot a 72 on Sunday to win by four shots. Glover had a 69 on Sunday and closed to within one shot after nine holes, but Trahan made four birdies on the backside to gain the victory. Glover finished second with a 283 total for the four rounds. A Clemson golfer has now won the South Carolina Amateur four consecutive years.

Jack Ferguson, who will be a red-shirt freshman on the Clemson team this year, finished fifth with a 289 score, while rising junior Ben Duncan was eighth at 291. His brother, Brian Duncan, who will be a freshman at Clemson this year, was 16th at 294. Clemson sophomore Matt Hendrix also finished 16th with a 294 score. Rising senior Tripp James had a 295 total for the four days and finished 20th, while Gregg Jones, the South Carolina Open champion this year, was 24th with a 297 score.
