April 6, 2000

PRINCETON, N.J. – Clemson University freshman D.J. Trahan (Inman, South Carolina) has been named the Rolex College Golfer of the Month for March, after winning an individual title at Rolex Collegiate Tour events last month.

Trahan won the Las Vegas Intercollegiate, his first Rolex Collegiate Tour victory of the season, after a playoff with Matt Brost of Texas. Trahan fired a nine-under par 207 (73-68-66) while helping to lead Clemson to a sixth place finish. Trahan, who was named the Golf World Collegiate Player of the Week for the week of March 17th, also tied for 18th place at the Schenkel E-Z-GO Invitational, where he shot 72-70-73 (215, -1) while helping the Tigers to a second place finish. Ranked No. 15 in the latest edition of the MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings, Trahan finished the month with a stroke average of 70.33 (six rounds).

The Rolex College Golfer of the Month award is voted on by members of the College Golf Foundation’s Golfer of the Month Committee. The award is based primarily on results from Rolex Collegiate Tour events, plus conference championships, NCAA Regionals and the NCAA Championships. Each winner will receive a certificate from the College Golf Foundation in recognition of this honor.

The Rolex College Golfer of the Month award is administered by the College Golf Foundation, a non-profit organization, founded with the corporate support of Rolex Watch U.S.A. and also sustained by an alliance with MasterCard International, dedicated to the growth and promotion of men’s and women’s collegiate golf.
