College golf enjoys some March Madness too

Pretty amazing weekend in college sports, and I'm not even talking about March Madness. The college golf scene witnessed some impressive performances as well the past few days. To wit:

  • The Clemson men claimed the Furman Invitational title for a third straight year, shooting a 26-under 838 to win by 15 strokes. Three players finished in the top four individually (Corbin Mills,Crawford Reeves and Thomas Bradshaw). It was also the first time in eight years that the Tigers have won consecutive events, after Clemson took the title at the USC-Aiken Cleveland Classic last month. Mills shot a final round 65, tying his best score at Clemson, in his final college round before playing in the Georgia Cup and the Masters in the next few weeks.
  • San Diego State senior J.J. Spaun shot a 15-under 201 at Omni Tucson National resort to take the individual title at the National Invitational Tournament. The win came just five days after Spaun finished first at The Farms Invitational with a four-under 212 performance. Spaun's efforts helped the Aztecs claim the team title in each event.
