The Clemson Golfers Finish in Top 16 of Rice Planters

by -

Clemson, SC- Clemson golfers Matt Hendrix, Brent Delahoussaye and
Brian Duncan all finished in the top 16 to the Rice Planters Amateur
over the weekend. The top national amateur event of the weekend was
held at Snee Farm Country Club in Mt. Pleasant, SC. All three will be
members of Clemson's 2003-04 golf team.

Hendrix, who will be a senior next year, finished fifth
overall after a final round 69. He earlier had rounds of 69 and 72.
His six-under-par 210 score and fifth-place finish give him three
top five finishes in major amateur events this summer. He also
finished first at the Sunnehanna in early June, and fourth at the
Monroe Invitational June 14. He was 14th at the Northeast Amateur in
Rhode Island two weeks ago. Hendrix is a strong candidate for
selection to the United States Walker Cup team, which will be chosen
at the end of the summer.

Rising junior Brent Delahoussaye finished ninth at the Rice
Planters, his second top 10 of the summer. The native of Greenville
won the Monroe Invitational in June. He had rounds of 70-70-72 for
his 212 total at the Rice Planters. Duncan had rounds of 72-71-71 in
finishing at 214 and two under-par, good enough for 16th place.

Martin Catalioto, who will be the Clemson team's only
representative in the United States Public Links Championship in two
weeks, had a 227 score for the three days and finished 72nd. Former
Clemson golfer Tripp James was 62nd after rounds of 74-76-74 for a
224 total.

The individual champion was Adam Rubinson, a recent graduate of TCU,
who had a 201 score for the 54-holes, 15-under-par.
