June 23, 2006

Clemson, SC-Recent Clemson graduate Brian Duncan has been named a third-team All-American by Golfweek. Fellow graduate Stephen Poole and freshman Vince Hatfield were named honorable mention All-Americans by the publication.

Duncan, who is now a professional, had a 73.15 stroke average this past year when he helped the Tigers to a seventh place final ranking at the NCAA Championships in Sunriver, OR. Duncan was Clemson’s most consistent golfer with eight top 20 finishes, including a third place individually at the ACC Tournament in April.

Duncan, a native of Greenville, SC, ranked 27th in the nation in the final Sagarin rankings. The three year starter tied for top honors among Clemson golfers at the NCAA Tournament.

Poole was Clemson’s top golfer in terms of stroke average this year with a 73.08 average. He also led the team in rounds under par with 13 and was the only Tiger to win a tournament as he captured the US Collegiate in April.

Hatfield had a 73.55 stroke average for the year, tied for fifth best in Clemson history (Chris Patton, 1986-87). The freshman from Greenwood was Clemson’s top golfer at the NCAA Central Regional in Cleveland with a 216 score, good enough for 12th place. Hatfield was earlier named to the Golf Coaches Association All-Region team.
