Clemson’s Kyle Stanley finished second in the individual category at the NCAA Golf Championships. He scorched through his final round firing a -5 under par 66 at The Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio. He finished the tournament at -4 under and two strokes behind NC State’s Matt Hill for the individual title. Stanley made six birdies and one bogey during his final round. He hit 16 of the 18 greens in regulation.
“I hit the ball much better on my approach shots with my irons today and that was the key,” said Stanley. “I was very pleased with the way I played today and glad I could end my Clemson career on a high note. I was just more confident with my irons today. I didn’t make any physical change to my swing, it was all mental.”
Stanley now has three top ten finishes in his career at the NCAA Championships. He finished seventh last year and 2nd in 2007. That solidifies him as one of the best to go through the storied Tigers program.
“Kyle has meant so much for this program,” said Tiger coach Larry Penley. “He has been a special player and I am excited to see what he can do at the next level. I think he will be very successful.”
