My name is Greg Carroll and I am a Junior PGA Golf Management Major at Clemson University. I picked up golf as I entered High School, and I fell in love with the sport. I knew I wanted to be in the golf industry, so I entered college as an NCAA Golfer my freshman year before transferring into PGM. I am passionate about the game of golf, which drives me to become the best I can be, and to provide the same experiences I have had to golfers everywhere. I am eager to fulfill the position of Student Ambassador not only by running the tournaments, but also by providing a memorable experience for all involved.
The Southeast Region has always been home to some of the top golf in the entire country. In Spring 2017, The University of Georgia took home the title of NCCGA National Champions. This was their second National Championship in a row. In Fall 2017, Clemson University won the first National Invitational event. The region looks to continue its success this Spring, and welcomes new students and teams. With South Carolina and Clemson making multiple Nationals appearances, these two teams will look to continue their battle in fall 2018. Clemson goes into 2018 Fall as the defending Fall NIT Champions! Clemson turned in a big spring season and are National Champs! They overcame a 5 shot deficit after day 1 to top Notre Dame by 4 shots for the title. Peyton Steigerwald turned in a second round 71 which helped propel the Tigers to the top. Clemson will look to defend their crown this fall! Clemson entered the fall season with a target on their back and took yet another regional and National title as they defended the crown in Oklahoma. This continues to be a two horse race with USC close on the Tigers heels.
