You know the old saying, “If you can’t beat them find a sport in which you can win while scoring less than 70.” Well Dabo Swinney did just that by participating in and winning the Wells Fargo Championship Wednesday morning Pro-Am with a team score of 58. This just so happens to be 12 strokes fewer than what Swinney’s Tigers gave up in the Orange Bowl several months back. In that contest Swinney’s opponents passed the 58 mark in the third quarter.
Swinney partnered with pro golfer Jonathan Byrd and former Clemson football player Rich Davies to win the Wednesday morning Pro-Am event. Swinney and team were able to out play 26 other teams in the morning event that included NBAer Deron Williams (63) and Golf Channel personality Holly Sonders (63). The Monday Pro-Am included big names like Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera, former NBA player Dell Curry and NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin.
The Wells Fargo Championship was only one of the golf events Dabo played in lately. Just before that event he took part in the Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge with other football coaches to compete for scholarship money. In that contest Dabo partnered with former Tiger player Steve Fuller and the results weren’t as promising. The Clemson team finished tied for last at -1 while Paul Johnson and partner Jon Barry led the Georgia Tech team to the title.
Next up for Dabo is to find a way to keep football opponents from scoring 70, which shouldn’t be too hard since Clemson is in the ACC.
