Byrd Finishes Tied for Third at Greater Greensboro Open

April 28, 2002

Clemson, SC – Former Clemson All-American Jonathan Byrd fired a final round 66 and finished tied for third at the Greater Greensboro Open on Sunday. It was the best finish of the young season for Byrd, who is a rookie on the PGA Tour.

Byrd and former Clemson teammate Charles Warren had a productive weekend. Warren won the event at the Cliffs Valley Course in Travelers Rest. Byrd won that event a year ago.

On Sunday, Byrd birdied three of the first five holes and finished the day with six birdies and no bogeys. It was his best finish of the year, better than the 15th place ranking he had at the Tucson Open earlier this year. The 66 on Sunday was his best final round and two shots off his career best of 64, a figure he posted in the second round at Tucson this year.

Byrd finished with rounds of 72-71-69-66, 10-under par. In fact, on Friday he was in danger of missing the cut, but he birdied two of the last three holes and went on to the strong weekend. He was 58th after two rounds and 22nd after three rounds before closing with his 66 on Sunday for his first career top five finish.

Chad Campbell, also a member of the Tour last year, had a bogey five on the last hole, and tied Byrd at 10-under-par.
