Four Tigers Finish in Top 30 at Azalea Invitational

March 31, 2003

Four members of the Clemson golf team finished in the top 30 of the Azalea Invitational over the weekend at the Country Club of Charleston. The field of 104 golfers featured some of the top amateurs in the country.

Clemson senior D.J. Trahan was the top Tiger in the four-day event at the par 71 course. Trahan, the defending champion, posted a 286 total on rounds of 70-73-71-72 and finished tied for eighth. Spencer Levin, a former UCLA golfer, was the champion with a 275 figure, five shots ahead of the nearest competitor.

Clemson senior Ben Duncan was in second place after 36 holes after rounds of 70-67, and finished 19th overall with a 290 score, six over par. His 67 on Friday included an eagle and five birdies. He had rounds of 76 and 77 in the windy conditions over the weekend.

Ben’s younger brother Brian Duncan, a freshman on Clemson’s number-one ranked team this year, finished at 291 and was tied for 23rd. He had rounds of 75-73-70-73 over the four days. Brent Delahoussaye, a transfer who is sitting out the 2003 season at Clemson, finished at 292, good enough for 30th place. He had rounds of 72-71-72-77.

Nick Biershenk, who is also red-shirting this season at Clemson, did not make the cut for the final round after shooting rounds of 74-74-77 for a 225 total. He finished 74th.

Clemson will be back in action as a team this coming Saturday and Sunday when it competes in the Cleveland Golf/Augusta State Invitational in Augusta, GA.
