SC has been under the radar all season, though the Gamecocks have had a stranglehold on the No.
On the 356-yard par four eighteenth hole, Rahm blasted a drive that went a whopping 382 yards, rolling straight through the middle of the green and coming to rest a few yards over it.

Arguably the Tigers' best team lost to CT on a buzzer beater in 1990 in the Sweet 16, and Clemson's 1997 squad made it to that same point before bowing out against Minnesota. "I usually listen to "My Way" the day of the game", Martin said.

Dominant? Sure, just don't call it easy. After halving the first two holes, Johnson did what he had done all week and raced to a big lead before the players hit the turn.
