Oct. 26, 2000

Clemson, S.C. – Clemson senior golfer John Engler has been named national Player of the Week of college golf by Golf World Magazine. Engler helped the Tigers to the championship of the Jerry Pate Intercollege tournament last week.

The native of Augusta, GA shot a final round 64 to spark a Clemson comeback from a four-shot deficit. The 64 tied for the second best Clemson individual round in history. He had a three-round total of 202, second best 54-hole score in Clemson history, in helping the Tigers to their fourth straight Jerry Pate Intercollegiate title.

Engler was a first-team All-American as a sophomore and a second-team selection last year. His 72.10 career scoring average is the lowest in Clemson golf history.

As a team, Clemson shot a 16-under-par 268 in the final round to defeat Georgia and Georgia Tech in the team competition. The 268 score was the lowest total for a single round in school history.
