GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – For the second time in a row the Clemson’s Jacob Bridgeman is the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Golf Scholar-Athlete of Year. He also headlines the 2022 All-ACC Academic Team announced on Monday. The Scholar-Athlete of Year award is named in honor of Rod Myers, Duke’s men’s golf coach from 1973 to 2007.
Senior of Inman, South Carolina, Bridgeman was the medalist for an individual during the ACC Men’s Golf Championship in Panama City Beach, Florida, and won the championship in the second hole of the playoff ahead of North Carolina’s Peter Fountain. Bridgeman shot rounds of 69 as well as 66 and 68 over the three-day stroke play tournament to score 13-under-par, becoming 7th player in Clemson to earn the individual award. Second-team PING All-American, Bridgeman is only one of two athletes to ever in ACC history to be awarded an award from the award of the league’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year award for consecutive years since the award was first introduced in 2007. Bridgeman was ranked second on the PGA Tour’s University rankings, which guarantees an appearance in the Korn Ferry Tour. Bridgeman is 2nd in Clemson’s history in a stroke average of 70.73 and also has the most ever-played sessions in the 60s at 50. Bridgeman had two individual victories in tournaments this year, and his five wins in his career are tied for the most wins in Clemson history.
