Clemson Ranked #1 in Sagarin, Golf World Polls

Oct. 4, 2002

Clemson remained number-one in the nation in the latest Sagarin College Golf Poll released Friday. The Tigers have won each of their first two tournament this year, The Topy Cup in Japan when Clemson had a school record tying 34-under-par score, and the Carpet Classic in Dalton, GA September 27-29. Clemson starts play in its third tournament on Monday in the Ping Preview in Stillwater, OK.

Clemson holds the number-one ranking ahead of Florida in the Sagarin poll. The Tigers have a 69.14 rating, followed by Florida’s 70.19. UCLA is ranked third with a 70.25 figure. Wake Forest is the next highest ACC team with a 70.89 figure, good enough for 11th. North Carolina is the only other ACC school in the top 15 with a 71.11.

Clemson is also number-one ranked in the Golf World preseason poll and is number-two in the Precept Golf Coaches Association Preseason poll. It is interesting to note that Clemson received more first-place votes than Georgia Tech in the Golf Coaches Association poll, yet is ranked second.
