BIRMINGHAM – The Clemson Tigers fired a 12-under par 562 during the first two rounds of the 2002 Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate at Old Overton Club. The final day of competition was cancelled early Tuesday morning due to heavy rains and very wet grounds and Clemson was awarded the trophy as the 2002 team champion. 

The Tigers fired a 12-under par 556 on Monday, six strokes better than second place Texas (562).  TCU was third at five under (563), while UNLV and Wake Forest tied for fourth place with a four-under par score (564). 

The second five consisted of Arizona and Georgia Tech, who tied for sixth place at three under par (565). Alabama was eighth at one under par (290-277/567), followed by Auburn (+12, 580) and Oklahoma State (+13, 581).

Southern California and UAB rounded out the 12-team field.  The Trojans were 11th with a 587 (+19), while UAB was 12th with a 595 (+24).

Arizona’s Chris Nallen (69-66/135) won the individual championship with a seven-under par.  He finished one stroke better than Clemson’s D.J. Trahan (66-70/136) and UNLV’s Ryan Moore (66-70/136) who tied for second at six under par.

The Crimson Tide had three golfers among the Top 25 scores, including Wesley Pate (17th), Lars Brovold (T20th) and Clint Provost (24th). 

Pate birdied the first and last hole in the first round en route to a two-under 69 in the first round.  He followed that with a 72 in second-round action to finish one-under (141) for the one-day event.  After shooting a 75 in the first round, Brovold came back with a four-under 67 in the final round to finish even (142) for the tournament.  Provost was plus-one for the tournament after shooting rounds of 75 and 68 on Monday.

Austin Hysnon finished 27th at three-over (145), while Lance Walker was four-over (146) and tied for 35th among the individual scorers.
