Doc Redman has been away from his Clemson teammates most of the spring portion of the college season.

He returned in time for the ACC tournament and helped the Tigers to third place after the first round.

After winning the US Amateur, Redman was invited to play in the Masters and several other PGA Tour events.

The Tiger’s sophomore missed the cut in Augusta, but played four rounds at Bay Hill and finished under par at the RBC Heritage.

His first tournament back with the team since the spring opener in Puerto Rico was a major boost for the Clemson team.

Redman shot a 5-under par 67 to be in a fourth place tie after the first round.

Danny Walker of Virginia and Luke Schneiderjans of Georgia Tech are tied for the individual lead at 7-under par 65.

Bryson Nimmer is tied for 12th at 3-under par and Kyle Cottam is tied for 18th at 2-under par to help the Tigers finish the first day three shots behind Georgia Tech.

Live streaming of the tournament will be available on Saturday (April 21) from 2-4 p.m. Final round action is set for Sunday from 1-3:30 p.m.
