Clemson, S.C.—Senior Carson Young, sophomore Bryson Nimmer and freshman Doc Redman were all named to the All-ACC Men’s Golf team on Thursday. Redman was also named the ACC Freshman of the Year.
It marked the second consecutive year Clemson had at least three players on the all-conference team and the second straight year Clemson had the ACC freshman of the year. Nimmer was the selection in 2016.
Young, who will graduate this week, was named all-conference for the second consecutive year. The native of Pendleton, S.C. has a 70.85 stroke average for the year and has five top 10 finishes. He has finished in the top 15 or better in each of his last seven tournaments., including his victory at the Furman Invitational on March 26. He also leads the team in birdies with 137 and par four scoring average at 4.01.
Nimmer also made the All-ACC team for the second straight year. The native of Bluffton, S.C. has a 70.94 stroke average this year and has six top 10 finishes, including a Clemson best tied for second at the ACC Championship two weeks ago. Nimmer finished second at the Puerto Rico Classic in February and has four top five finishes for the year.
Redman is the sixth player in Clemson history to earn All-ACC honors as a freshman. Others to do it are Jonathan Byrd (1997), D.J. Trahan (2000), Kyle Stanley (2007), Ben Martin (2007) and Bryson Nimmer (2016). He joins Trahan, Stanley and Nimmer as Clemson golfers to be named ACC Freshman of the Year.
Redman leads the Clemson team in stroke average at 70.36, on pace to be the second best average in Clemson history. He has seven top 10 finishes, most ever by a Clemson freshman, and has 21 under-par rounds, most on the team. He established a Clemson 54-hole record when he shot a 198 in winning the Jackrabbit Invitational in September. He also won the Ka’anapali Classic in Hawaii in November.
The Clemson golf team will head to Murfreesboro, Tenn. to begin play at the NCAA Regional on Monday.
