Clemson, SC-D.J. Trahan is one of six former Clemson golfers who will
be playing in PGA Tour events this weekend. There will be three
former Tigers in the PGA Tour's FBR Capital Open at the TPC at Avenel
in Potomac, MD, and three more at the Nationwide Tour's LaSalle Bank
Open at The Glen Club in Glenview, IL.

Trahan will be joined by former Tigers Jonathan Byrd and
Danny Ellis at the TPC at Avenel. The 2003 senior who just led
Clemson to the NCAA Championship last Friday, will begin his
professional career Thursday at 1:39 PM. He is paired with James
McLean and John Morgan. Earlier this week, Trahan failed to qualify
for the US Open when he shot a 141 over 36 holes at a course in
Chevy Chase, MD. Trahan is one of three players turning professional
at this tournament. The others are former Georgia Tech star Troy
Matteson and former Fresno State All-American Nick Watney.

Byrd has a 12:36 PM tee time on Thursday. He is coming off a
29th place finish at the Memorial last weekend. He enters this week
54th on the PGA Tour money list with nearly $600,000 in earnings in
2003. He has three top 10 finishes this year, including an eighth
place finish at the Masters. Ellis will be playing his first PGA
Tour event of the year after battling back problems. He missed the
last half of last season due to back problems.

Kevin Johnson, Lucas Glover and Charles Warren all will be
playing at the LaSalle Bank Open in Glenview, IL, a suburb of
Chicago. The Nationwide Tour event in Virginia was rained out last
week, so all three players should be well rested.
