Other Notes of Interest:   Clemson will play two true freshmen in its lineup in Lauren Stephenson and Alice Hewson.  Both were ranked among the top 35 junior players in the world this past summer…Marisa Messana, a sophomore, played in the U.S. Amateur this past summer, the first Clemson women’s golfer to play in that amateur major…she was also Clemson’s top golfer at the ACC Tournament last year where she finished 21st…Jessica Hoang and Sloan Shanahan are two other returning starters in their third year with the program….both were in the Clemson lineup two years ago when the Tigers played their first ever tournament at the Cougar Classic….Shanahan hit the first shot in the history of the program at the Yeamans Hall Club and made a birdie on that first hole.
