WASHINGTON - A resolution introduced by U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham
(R-South Carolina) commending the Clemson University Golf Team for
winning the 2003 NCAA Division I Golf National Championship has
passed the U.S. Senate.


The resolution recognizes the many accomplishments the team achieved this year:


· Winning the national championship by two strokes;

· Becoming the first golf team in NCAA history to win its
conference championship, an NCAA regional title, and the National
Championship in the same year;

· Starting and finishing the year ranked number one in the nation;

· Winning 93 percent of their matches against teams ranked in the top 25;

· Players D.J. Trahan, Jack Ferguson, and Matt Hendrix were
honored as All-Americans for 2002-2003;

· Head Coach Larry Penley won the Dave Williams Award as the
National Coach of the Year as selected by the Golf Coaches
Association.


"We're all very proud of these young men and Coach Penley," said
Graham. "They have represented Clemson and the state of South
Carolina well. The dedication, teamwork and sportsmanship they have
demonstrated throughout the year set a high standard we should all
strive to achieve."



Graham also noted that all members of the team who participated in
the National Championship are native-born South Carolinians.



The resolution extends an invitation to the team to visit the U.S.
Capitol Building to be honored in Washington.



U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett (R-Westminster) has introduced a similar
resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives.
