The wait for his first collegiate win was longer than expected, but Bryson Nimmer didn’t waste any time picking up his second.
Nimmer made it two victories in a row when he claimed individual medalist honors at the Maui Jim Intercollegiate on Sunday in Scottsdale, Ariz., leading Clemson to a sixth-place finish in the 14-team field.
The Bluffton native and Hilton Head Christian Academy graduate carded a 5-under-par 65 in the final round to overtake Arizona State’s Chun An Yu and become the first Clemson golfer to win back-to-back events since another player with Lowcountry connections – former Hilton Head High golfer D.J. Trahan – did it in 2001-02.
Nimmer has carded three rounds of 65 or better this season, already tied for the program’s single-season record, and his six career rounds of 65 or better are the most in Clemson history.
