Clemson golf schedule released

The Clemson golf team will open its season Sept. 11 at the Carpet Capital Classic in Dalton, Ga., the first of 10 regular season events over the course of the academic year. Clemson will play eight regular season stroke-play events that will be contested for 54 holes over three days and two 54-hole events that will be played in two days.

There are two new events on the schedule, the Jacksonville Invitational, which will be played at the TPC at Sawgrass on Feb. 8-9, and the USCA Cleveland Classic at Palmetto Country Club in Aiken. The Jacksonville Invitational will be played at the site of the PGA Tour’s prestigious Players Championship.

Clemson will also play at the Westin Rio Mar Classic in Puerto Rico in February, the 18th straight year Larry Penley’s Tigers have played in that event. Clemson finished second at the event last year with a 26-under-par team score.

After a year off, Clemson returns to the Furman Invitational in nearby Greenville, March 19-21. Clemson finished second at that tournament two years ago.

The ACC Tournament will be played at the Old North State Club in Uwharrie Point, N.C., April 23-25, the ninth straight year The Old North State has played host to the event.

The NCAA Regional tournament will be played May 20-22 at six sites.
