Clemson was declared the champion of the Hummingbird Invitational on Saturday, Nov. 1 when it was determined the final round could not be played due to inclement weather.

On Friday, Oct. 31, Stephen Behr and Beaufort High School graduate Josh Fickes both had rounds of two under par 69 to lead Clemson to a 278 team score, one shot better than Furman. All five Clemson golfers scored under par and finished in the top 10 on the 6,767-yard course.

Fickes had his best round of the year by four shots as he had five birdies over 18 holes.

Miller Capps, Cody Proveaux and Billy Kennerly all had rounds of one-under-par 70.  Capps had five birdies, while Kennerly had four. Proveaux, who had his ninth under-par round of the year, had just two birdies, but had the only eagle of the day by a Clemson golfer.
