Hopkins had Clemson’s best round on Tuesday with a three-under par 69. He started slowly with two bogeys within his first three holes for the third straight day. But he played the next nine holes at five under par and finished with the three under score. Overall, Hopkins had a 213 total to finish in 11th place.

Tanner Ervin shot a 73 on Tuesday, but he finished strong with two birdies within his last three holes. That gave Clemson a two-shot cushion over Georgia Tech for second place. Ervin had a 67 in the first round, his best round in two years. He finished 10th overall with a 212 score.

Sam Saunders had a top 15 finish with a 214 score. He slumped a big on Tuesday with a 75 after shooting a 68 in the second round. He did not have a bogey in the second round.
