Clemson, SC—Former Clemson All-American Ben Martin earned his first professional paycheck on  Saturday at the E-Golf Professional Tour’s Southern Open in China Grove, NC.   Martin was an All-American and three-time All-ACC golfer at Clemson who concluded his career with the Tigers this past June.

The native of Greenwood, SC had rounds of 69-68-69-67 for a 273 total and an 11th place finish.  He won $4,034.  Martin’s final round featured eight birdies, including five in a row on holes 10-14.  He finished the 72-hole event with 18 birdies.

Martin was one of five former Tigers who finished in the top 25 of the Southern Open.  Matt Hendrix, a starter on Clemson’s 2003 National Championship team, finished seventh with a 272 score, while Martin Catalioto, also a member of that national championship team, was 14th at 274.

Danny Ellis, an All-American at Clemson between 1990-93, finished 19th with a 276 score.  Ellis is attempting a comeback from a long list of injuries.  He is a veteran of  110 career PGA Tour events.

Tommy Biershenk, a member of Clemson golf teams in the mid 1990s, finished 25th with a 277 score.   Biershenk is currently second on the E-Golf Pro Tour money list with $92,623 so far this summer.
