Clemson freshman Ashlan Ramsey reacts to making a putt

Hey everyone!

I have had an amazing yet busy past few weeks. Since my last blog, our Clemson team played the last tournament of the fall and I represented the United States at the Spirit International. The downside is that I am now working around the clock to stay caught up with all of the school work I missed.

Our last event was the Landfall Tradition in Wilmington, N.C. For the practice round, we played a College/Am with some great people from Wilmington. As a team we didn’t have our best tournament but finished in third place ...

Who doesn’t like to end a season on a high note? Wouldn’t anyone like to shoot a career or season low during their final tournament? Any coach would take three of his players finishing in the top five individually and a second place finish as a team, right?

Our team did all of this in our final tournament of the fall, the Donald Ross Intercollegiate at Mimosa Hills Golf Club. Every player on our team either tied or bettered their career low score over the course of the tournament, an incredible feat that required perseverance to achieve. Having ...

This was it, my last fall season as a Golden Bear! Hard to believe I have one more spring season to go and that I will be graduating six months from now.

This past weekend may not have been our best team performance, but I think we all really enjoyed the tournament and it gave us a great opportunity to reflect on our game and motivate us to work harder so that we can get ready for our final run in the spring.

It’s been my third straight year playing at the Isleworth Collegiate, and what an incredible venue ...

WINDERMERE, Fla. – One of the best perks of playing golf for Central Florida is frequent access to one of the most exclusive courses in the Orlando, Fla., area. The Knights have the opportunity to play Isleworth Golf and Country Club about 10 times a year, and that familiarity showed on Sunday at the Isleworth Intercollegiate.

UCF co-hosts the event with Texas Tech, and after the opening 18 holes, the Knights are in second place. The team shot 6-under 282, which is the Knights' lowest team score at the Isleworth Collegiate in its 10 years of existence. Alabama posted 8-under 280 ...

DESTIN, Fla. – Betty Palmer’s Birmingham Southern team knows her heart lies in Alabama. That much is evident by the thick southern accent. But Palmer’s history with the Crimson Tide is so much deeper than that.

Palmer, 54, was the head women’s golf coach at Alabama for 17 years. She was named the SEC Coach of the Year in 1993, stepped away in 2005 and reappeared in women’s college golf in June. Palmer now leads Birmingham Southern’s women, a program that transitioned from Division I to Division III during the 2006-07 season.
