Clemson, SC—Clemson rising junior Thomas Bradshaw defeated David Erdy of Boonville, IN on Saturday morning to advance to the championship match of the North-South Amateur at Pinehurst, NC.   Bradshaw is attempting to become just the second Clemson golfer to win the North-South Amateur.  Phillip Mollica won the event contested at Pinehurst #2 in 2007.

Bradshaw then won the 13th, 14th and 16th holes to clinch the match 4 and 2.   He actually won the 16th hole with a bogey.  Bradshaw had just two birdies for the 16 holes, but made just three bogeys on the difficult Pinehurst #2 course that has been the site of two US Opens in recent years.
