Golf to Compete in First Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate

March 24, 2005

The Clemson golf team will compete in the first Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate in Awendaw, SC March 27-29. The event, Clemson’s ninth stroke play tournament of the year, will be held at the par 71, Bulls Bay Golf Club course that is 7166 yards in length.

Clemson will be one of 15 teams competing. The tournament will have a strong SEC/ACC field, as six of the teams are from the ACC (Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, NC State and Wake Forest) and seven are from the SEC (Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, South Carolina and Vanderbilt). The other two schools in the field are Augusta State and College of Charleston.

Clemson will take Jack Ferguson, Brent Delahoussaye, Brian Duncan, Nick Biershenk and Tanner Ervin this weekend. It will be the first time this year Clemson has used this lineup. Head Coach Larry Penley is trying to improve his team after consecutive double-digit finishes, 13th at the Southern Highlands in Las Vegas and 12th at the Schenkel Invitational in Statesboro, GA.

Ferguson, Delahoussaye and Duncan have played in every tournament for the Tigers this year. Ferguson leads the team with a 73.13 stroke average and has a team best two top 10 finishes. Delahoussaye, who has a 73.50 stroke average this year, was Clemson’s top golfer at the Schenkel last weekend with a 19th place finish, while Duncan leads the team in under-par rounds with seven. Duncan has a 73.79 stroke average.

Biershenk and Ervin will each play in their second career tournament for the Tigers. Biershenk shot a 235 at the Preview back in September in Baltimore, while Ervin shot a 240 at the Carpet Classic last fall. Ervin should know the Bulls Bay Course well as it is his home course.
