WATCH: Former Clemson golfer holes out from 140 yards
Former Clemson golfer Doc Redman started his final round in style at the Quicken Loans National in Potomac, Maryland Sunday.
Redman, who went pro just this spring, knocked in a shot for eagle from 140 yards out on the first hole:
Redman shot a 6-under 64 without a bogey on the round and moved up to a tie for 38th as of early Sunday afternoon.
He made his professional debut in early June, finishing 3-over and missing the cut at the Memorial Tournament.
Redman Clemson profile
Redman finished his two seasons at Clemson with a 70.70 stroke average, the best in Clemson history on a career basis, breaking D.J. Trahan’s mark of 71.49 that had stood for 15 years. His 70.59 stroke average this year ranks third best in Clemson history behind Trahan’s 70.33 in 2001-02 and teammate Bryson Nimmer’s 70.50 this season.
Redman won the United States Amateur last August, joining Chris Patton (1989) as the only Clemson golfers in history to win that prestigious event. He was granted three PGA Tour exemptions as an amateur this spring and made the cut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Heritage. He also played in the Masters.
Redman played in seven tournaments for Clemson this year and had three top 10s, including a second-place at the ACC Tournament and a second place at the NCAA Regional. He was a combined 24 under par in those two events. He finished 15th with an even-par 288 score at this week’s NCAA National Tournament.
For his career, Redman had 11 top 10 finishes in 20 tournaments, had 36 under-par rounds and 20 rounds in the 60s. He set 15 Clemson records on a tournament, season and career basis.
