He actually has a cut streak of four in a row in majors dating to last year’s PGA.  It is the longest streak on record in Majors among former Clemson golfer.

            Glover finished fifth at the PGA Championship last year at Hazeltine in Edina, MN, the best finish on record for a former Clemson golfer at the PGA and the second best finish in any Major.   Of course Glover also has the top finish on record by a Clemson golfer in a Major when he won the 2009 US Open at Bethpage Black in New York.

            Trahan will be playing in his fourth consecutive PGA.  He finished 31st in the 2008 PGA at Bloomfield Hills, MI.  So far this year, Trahan is 59th on the PGA Tour money list with just over $1 million.  He is 11th on tour in greens in regulation at nearly 70 percent and is 14th on tour in top 10 finishes with five.
