April 11, 1998

CARY, NC–Seniors Charles Warren and Joey Maxon both had top five finishes to lead Clemson to a fifth-place finish at the BELLSOUTH Yellow Pages Intercollegiate at MacGregor Downs Country Club. The Tigers finishes fifth in the 10-team tournament, which was won by number-one ranked UNLV.

UNLV shot an 868 for the tournament, even with a disappointing 298 on the final day. Wake Forest was second, just one shot back after a 287 on Saturday. North Carolina was third at 875, while Duke was fourth at 879, just one shot ahead of Clemson (880). The Tigers were three shots better than Texas A&M, who finished at 883.

The individual medalist was Jeremy Anderson of UNLV, who shot 210, including an opening round 67. Todd Lynch of Wake Forest was second at 212, followed by Warren at 214.

Warren had a 70 on Saturday after a pair of 72s in the first two rounds and finished third overall with a 214 score. It was Warren’s 20th career top 10 finish and the 70 score he posted Saturday was the 100th of his career at 75 or better. Warren will be one of the favorites in next weekend’s ACC Tournament. He is the defending champion.

Maxon had a 73 on Saturday and finished at 216 for the tournament, even par. His total was good enough for a tie for fifth place. It was Maxon’s 12th career top 10 finish, his fourth this year and his third this spring.

Clemson’s next three golfers were between 35th and 44th. Lucas Glover of Greenville had a 79 on Saturday and finished at 226, 10-over-par and a 35th -place ranking. He was coming off a co-medalist performance in the Carpet Classic last weekend.

Fellow freshman John Engler was tied for 38th at 227 after a 75 on Saturday, while Jonathan Byrd shot a 79 on Saturday and finished at 230, 44th place. Byrd had recorded six top 10 finishes in his first nine tournaments of the season.

Clemson will take part in the ACC Tournament next weekend (Friday-Saturday-Sunday) at the Old North State Club in New London, NC.
