Tiger Golf Gathering: Annual extravaganza returns to Greenville

Posted 12/6/2013 1:37:00 PM

As Clemson University celebrates the 10th anniversary of its men’s golf team winning the 2003 NCAA Golf Championship, coaches, former players and Tigers fans will also be participating in the 11th Tiger Golf Gathering – a fund-raising, multi-event celebration staged at two of the Greenville area’s finest golf courses.

Founded by former Clemson All-Americans Charles Warren, Jonathan Byrd and Lucas Glover, the Tiger Golf Gathering (TGG) – happening this week at Thornblade Club and Greenville Country Club’s Chanticleer Course – brings together dozens of current and former players, coaches and fans to honor golf coach Larry Penley’s perennial national-contending program.

Funds generated help support Clemson’s golf program, which has added a women’s team for the 2013-14 season, as well as the school’s Professional Golf Management Program and the S.C. Junior Golf Association.
