Delahoussaye Wins Monroe Invitational

by -

Clemson, SC-Brent Delahoussaye fired a final round 69, his third
round in the 60s in four days, and won the Monroe Invitational on
Saturday afternoon in Pittsford, NY. The event was held at the
Monroe Country Club in upstate New York and features 60 of the top
amateur golfers in the nation.

Delahoussaye, who red-shirted this past season as a member of
Clemson's National Championship team, looks to fill one of the two
spots open on next year's starting lineup as the result of the
graduation of D.J Trahan and Ben Duncan. Trahan won the Monroe
Invitational last year.

The rising junior who attended Riverside High School in
Greenville had rounds of 67-73-65-69 for a 274 total on the par 70
course and won by one shot over Peter Tomasulo, a golfer at the
University of California, and Casey Wittenberg an amateur golfer from
Memphis, TN.

This marked the third straight victory for a Clemson golfer,
or team in a major amateur event. Clemson won the NCAA team
championship at Stillwater, OK on May 30th. Last Sunday, Matt
Hendrix, a rising senior on the 2004 Clemson team, won the Sunnehanna
Invitational in Pennsylvania. Now, Delahoussaye has added his name
to the list.

Hendrix also competed in the Monroe and finished fourth
overall with a 276 total, four-under par. He had a 68 on Saturday to
go with previous rounds of 70-68-70. Gregg Jones, who will also be a
senior at Clemson next year, finished ninth with a 280 total after
rounds of 70-69-71-70. Jack Ferguson, who will be a junior on
Clemson's team next year, had round of 74-68-68-75 and finished 26th
with a 285 total. Rising sophomore Martin Catalioto finished at
290, 10-over-par and in 44th place.
