The Clemson sideline at Camping World Stadium in Orlando looks a lot like the first tee on the PGA Tour.

Golfers Lucas Glover, Jonathan Byrd and Trevor Immelman are on the sideline cheering on the Tigers, and each Clemson coach went over to high-five the trio as they came out of the tunnel. Swinney laughed with Immelman and asked him how he liked last week's score - Clemson's 56-7 win over South Carolina.

Byrd was born in Anderson and attended Clemson from 1997 to 2000. During his Clemson career, Byrd was the first four-time First Team All-ACC player in Clemson history and was named a First Team All-America in 1999. He represented the United States on the Walker Cup team in 1999.

Glover was a three-time High School All-American at Wade Hampton High School in Greenville and won the South Carolina State High School championship as a freshman and sophomore and finished as the runner-up as a junior and senior. Glover was All-State for all four years of high school.

Glover golfed for the Tigers from 1998 to 2001, where he was named first-team All-American in 2000 and 2001 and honorable mention All-American in 1999. He was a member of the 2001 United States Walker Cup team and the 1999 USA vs. Japan Cup Team. He won three college tournaments and also won the South Carolina Amateur in 1998, 1999 and 2000 and the Sunnehanna Amateur in 2001.

Glover won the 2009 U.S. Open at the Bethpage Black Course (Farmingdale, New York) by two strokes over Phil Mickelson, Ricky Barnes, and David Duval.

Immelman, out of South Africa, has two PGA Tour wins, including the 2008 Masters.
