Wednesday night we welcomed into the program former Clemson All-American golfer Ben Martin to preview his trip across the Atlantic next week where he’ll be competing for a Major title at the Open Championship.
Martin qualified for the Open Championship when he finished tied for third at Congressional for the “Quicken Loans National” recently. He explained the PGA’s new system and how it landed him a spot with a chance to win a Major.
Martin, a Greenwood native, also expressed how his home state tournament, the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town, was where he saw the level of his play spike, as evidenced by his third place finish.
Martin elaborated more on his eventual trip with us as well, in terms of when he’s making the trek over the ocean, how he’ll get acquainted with Royal Liverpool, who’s making the trip with him, and much more.
