Clemson's Doc Redman will be recognized before the FSU game

November 11, 2017

Clemson sophomore golfer Doc Redman won the 2017 US Amateur by claiming the final three holes with an eagle and two birdies to win in 37 holes. Redman claimed the 117th United States Amateur Championship at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California.   

Redman joins Chris Patton as the only Clemson golfers to win the United States Amateur. He was two-down with two holes to play, and on the 17th hole (the 35th hole of the match) Redman rolled in a 50-foot eagle putt to cut the margin to one. He then hit his second shot on the 18th hole to seven feet right of the cup and made that putt for birdie to square the match. It was the third consecutive match that Redman won the 18th hole to either win the match or send it to extra holes.

Redman will be recognized with 8 minutes remaining on the pregame clock as he runs down The Hill prior to the team arrival.

We spoke with Clemson golf coach Larry Penley several months ago about Doc Redman. Enjoy the full interview below.
