Trahan to Hold Top Amateur Status in the World

Trahan to Hold Top Amateur Status in the World

April 17, 2002

Clemson junior D.J. Trahan will soon rise to the number-one ranking in the Golfweek/Titleist Men’s Amateur Rankings. Bubba Dickerson, formerly of the University of Florida, and Robert Hamilton of Rocklin, CA both turned professional after the Masters last week. Dickerson was ranked #1 among amateurs, while Hamilton was tied for second with Trahan. That will move Trahan to the number-one position.

Trahan has ranked in the top 10 in the world amateur rankings since he won the United States Public Links championship in the summer of 2000.
