Stanley Named Honorable Mention All-American

June 6, 2008

Clemson, SC – Clemson sophomore Kyle Stanley was named an honorable mention All-American by the Golf Coaches Association on Friday. Stanley led Clemson to a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Golf Championships last weekend.

Stanley had six top 10 finishes this past season, including a seventh place finish at the NCAA Championships. The native of Gig Harbor, WA defeated 25 of the 30 players named first, second or third team All-American at the NCAA Championships.

Stanley led the Tigers in stroke average this year with a 72.44 average. He also led the team in under par rounds with 14 and rounds at par or better with 22. He will enter his junior year second in Clemson history in career stroke average with a 71.72 average. He trails only PGA Tour veteran D.J. Trahan in that category.

Last Monday, Stanley qualified for the 2008 United States Open when he finished eighth at the sectional qualifying tournament at Columbus, OH with a six under par round. He will be joined by former Tigers Trahan and Jonathan Byrd at the US Open at Torrey Pines Golf Club in San Diego, CA.
