Larry Penley’s 38 year run as the men’s golf coach at Clemson is coming to an end. But before that, he gets a shot at a second national championship. Penley’s Tigers finished the Kingston, TN regional Wednesday tied for fourth, and that was good enough to punch a ticket to the NCAA Championships next week in Scottsdale, AZ.
Clemson was the only state team to make the transfer to the championship tournament. USC finished ninth in it’s regional, but the Gamecocks Ryan Hall was the medalist and will play for the individual title next week.
Wednesday night Penley joined us on SportsTalk to talk about his team’s accomplishment.
