Larry Penley, the golf coach at Clemson, has 83 tournament victories under his belt, including 10 ACC titles (the most recent being this year) and the 2003 NCAA Championship. He turns the reins over to assistant Jordan Byrd, however, he plans to return as a volunteer assistant in the near future. 

Besides, Mr. Penley received a proper send-off from the NCAA Individual champion, Turk Pettit. A senior from Auburn, Alabama, Turk won the NCAA individual championship by one shot over Oklahoma State freshman Bo Jin, becoming the second player in Clemson history to do so following Charles Warren in 1997.

Clemson’s golf coach, Larry believed Turk Pettit was special from the moment he recruited him. Pettit, on the other hand, will go pro this summer. Giving his beloved coach a dignified send-off was the cherry on top.
