Clemson, S.C.—Bryson Nimmer, Turk Pettit and Doc Redman were all named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Golf Team Thursday. It was the third straight selection for Nimmer, the second time for Redman and the first time for Pettit.
This marks the third consecutive year Clemson has had at least three members on the All-ACC team, but just the fourth time in the last 14 years. The three players have helped Clemson to a No. 14 ranking in the latest Golf Coaches Association poll and a No. 3 seed at the Bryan Regional of the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
All three Tigers on the All-ACC team have a stroke average of 70.60 or better, the first time in Clemson history the Tigers have had three players at that low a stroke average entering the NCAA Tournament.
Pettit, a freshman who played high school golf in Auburn, Ala. but now lives with his family in North Carolina, has the best stroke average on the team at 70.48. He has five top 10 finishes, 10 rounds in the 60s, and 17 rounds at par, best on the team. He won the Irish Creek Invitational in early April. This marks the third straight year a Clemson freshman has made the All-ACC team.
Nimmer is on the squad for a third consecutive year thanks to a 70.52 stroke average, just one total stroke behind Pettit in the same number of rounds. Nimmer has a team best six top 10 finishes to go with nine rounds in the 60s and 16 rounds under par. He has a 71.68 career stroke average for 90 rounds.
Redman has played in just five tournaments this year, as he received invitations to three PGA events as a result of his victory in the August 2017 US Amateur. He has a 70.60 average for those five events and a pair of top 10s. All five of his tournament appearances have been against national fields and his personal strength of schedule is ranked first in the nation by Golfweek.
Clemson begins play at the Bryan Regional near College Station, Texas on Monday, May 14.
