Clemson, S.C.—Bryson Nimmer, Doc Redman and Colby Patton all were named to the Academic All-ACC team on Thursday. It was the third selection for Nimmer, the second for Redman and the first for Patton. Clemson was one of four schools with at least three selections to the team.
Players on the team must have at least a 3.0 career GPA and have made a significant contribution to the team on the course during the 2017-18 season.
Nimmer and Redman were also named first-team All-ACC on the course, two of 10 ACC golfers who were named to both teams this year. It marked the third straight year Nimmer had been named to both teams and the second straight year Redman made both teams.
Nimmer is the first Clemson golfer to make both teams three years in a row. The academic All-ACC team dates to 2006. The native of Bluffton, SC ranked in the top 20 in the nation in final Golfstat (11) and Golfweek (18) rankings this year. His stroke average of 70.50 was 20th in the nation. He finished seventh at the NCAA National Tournament in Stillwater, Okla, the best finish by a Clemson golfer since Kyle Stanley was second in 2009.
Redman ranked 16th best in the nation according to Golfweek and 20th by Golfstat. He had a 70.59 stroke average in his seven tournaments and 22 rounds. He finished 15th at the NCAA National Tournament after finishing second at the ACC Tournament and the NCAA Regional. Redman turned professional in May and is now playing on the PGA Tour. He won the US Amateur in August in Los Angeles.
Patton, like Nimmer a second generation golfer, was fifth on the team in stroke average at 73.32. The freshman from Fountain Inn, SC played in 10 tournaments. He won the Hummingbird Invitational in October and finished seventh at the Puerto Rico Classic, helping the Tigers to the team title.
