3 Tigers Finish in Top 16 at Rice Planters

July 6, 2003

Clemson, SC – Clemson golfers Matt Hendrix, Brent Delahoussaye and Brian Duncan all finished in the top 16 to the Rice Planters Amateur over the weekend. The top national amateur event of the weekend was held at Snee Farm Country Club in Mt. Pleasant, SC. All three will be members of Clemson’s 2003-04 golf team.

Hendrix, who will be a senior next year, finished fifth overall after a final round 69. He earlier had rounds of 69 and 72. His six-under-par 210 score and fifth-place finish give him three top five finishes in major amateur events this summer. He also finished first at the Sunnehanna in early June, and fourth at the Monroe Invitational June 14. He was 14th at the Northeast Amateur in Rhode Island two weeks ago. Hendrix is a strong candidate for selection to the United States Walker Cup team, which will be chosen at the end of the summer.

Rising junior Brent Delahoussaye finished ninth at the Rice Planters, his second top 10 of the summer. The native of Greenville won the Monroe Invitational in June. He had rounds of 70-70-72 for his 212 total at the Rice Planters. Duncan had rounds of 72-71-71 in finishing at 214 and two under-par, good enough for 16th place.

Martin Catalioto, who will be the Clemson team’s only representative in the United States Public Links Championship in two weeks, had a 227 score for the three days and finished 72nd. Former Clemson golfer Tripp James was 62nd after rounds of 74-76-74 for a 224 total.

The individual champion was Adam Rubinson, a recent graduate of TCU, who had a 201 score for the 54-holes, 15-under-par.
