Langdale Finishes Second at Rice Planters

CLEMSON, S.C.—Clemson rising junior Austin Langdale continued his outstanding summer with a second-place finish at the 2015 Rice Planters Amateur at Snee Farm Golf Club in Mount Pleasant, S.C. Earlier this summer Langdale finished fifth at the Palmetto Amateur.

Langdale, who was Clemson’s top player at the NCAA National Tournament in late May, had rounds of 68-65-67-70 for a 270 total, 18-under-par. The native of Townville, S.C. finished the 72 holes tied with William Rainey, a member of the College of Charleston golf team. But, Rainey made a birdie on the first playoff hole to win the tournament.

Langdale had a strong tournament with 23 total birdies, including eight in the second round when he shot a seven under par 65. One of the birdies came on the 18th hole on Saturday, a birdie that allowed Langdale to tie Rainey at 270. 

Bryson Nimmer, who will come to Clemson as a freshman in August, finished tied for third with a 274 score after rounds of 70-65-71-68 for a 274 total, 14-under-par. He finished the tournament with 24 birdies, including eight in the second round when he shot 65.

Carson Young, a Clemson classmate of Langdale, finished 23rd with a 283 score average rounds of 72-69-70-72. Peter Mathison (79-69-72, 58th), Blake Kennedy (77-74-72, 67th) and Josh Fickes (74-74-77, 76th), also participated in the tournament, but did not make the cut for the final round.
