Clemson's Nimmer is
ACC Player of the Year
Clemson golfer Bryson Nimmer has been named the ACC Player of the Year. The announcement was made by the Atlantic Coast Conference on Wednesday. Nimmer was also named to the All-ACC team for the fourth consecutive year.
The senior from Bluffton is just the fourth Clemson golfer to win ACC Player of the Year award, as he joins Richard Coughlan (1997), D.J. Trahan (2002) and Kyle Stanley (2007).
Nimmer's 18 rounds in the 60s are already a Clemson single-season mark. His 68.97 stroke average is on pace to break Trahan’s record of 70.33 in 2001-02. He has 22 under-par rounds, five short of Trahan’s record of 27.
For the season, Nimmer is ranked fifth nationally by Golfweek and eighth by Golfstat.
Nimmer has won four tournaments this year, the most in Clemson history by an individual in one academic year.
Nimmer and the Tigers will begin play in the NCAA Austin, Texas Regional on Monday, May 13.
