Former Clemson NCAA Champion Charles Warren and reigning United States Open Champion Lucas Glover will both be honored during ceremonies on Saturday prior to the Clemson vs. Florida State game at Clemson Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is at 7:45 PM.
Warren will be inducted into the Clemson Ring of honor, the first Tiger golfer to receive the Athletic Department’s highest honor. The 1998 Clemson graduate won the 1997 NCAA Tournament as a junior and is still the only Clemson golfer to win that tournament. He is also the only two time ACC Tournament champion in school history.
Warren won the Dave Williams Award as the top senior golfer in the nation in 1998. He was a three-time All-American and a three-time All-ACC selection. He was named to the ACC 50-Year Anniversary team in 2002 and was inducted into the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame in 2005.
Glover will be honored for his victory over Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and the rest of the world’s golfers this past June when he was victorious with a four under par score at Bethpage Black Golf Course in New York. He became the first former Clemson golfer to win a professional major.
Glover, a two-time All-American and three-time All-ACC performer during his Clemson career (1997-01) is ranked 16th in the latest World Rankings and is ninth on the PGA Tour money list this year.
In addition to dotting the I during the pregame, Glover will also run down the hill with the Clemson team during its famed entrance to the stadium.
