Golf: Clemson’s Nimmer Claims Second Straight Title

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.
