HILTON HEAD, S.C. – Freshman D.J. Trahan shot a final round 67 to lead Clemson to a 279 team score on the final round and a fourth place overall finish at the Golf World/Palmetto Dunes Intercollegiate at the Arthur Mills Course on Hilton Head Island. Clemson’s 279 team score tied for the second best of the final round and the Tigers improved three spots on the day.

Clemson’s top finisher at the event was Greenville native Lucas Glover, who shot a 71 on Sunday and finished at 205, tied for second. He was just two shots behind the 203 turned in by Erik Compton of Georgia.

John Engler also had an under-par round on Sunday, shooting a 69. Engler finished at 214 for the event, two-under-par and good enough for 30th. Jonathan Byrd shot a 72 on Sunday and finished with an even par 216. Jani Saari, also of Greenville, shot a 73 on Sunday, the only Tiger who was over par.
