Almost every athlete has heard the classic story telling them how long of a shot it is to become a professional in their sport. This is true as it is a very longshot but for some they are able to find a way to become a professional in their sports in ways other than their game. This has happened for senior Harrison Clements as he prepares to enter the PGA Tour Management program at University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

In the program students will have the opportunity to earn a degree within the golf industry. This will give the students the chance to work for companies involved in golf, work as a trainer at a golf course or even work their way onto the PGA tour working in various roles.

“I have prepared for this program by playing and practicing all my life,” Clements said. “My goal has always been to work in the golf industry and that is why I wanted to be a part of this program.”

Success in golf is nothing new for Clements as he has made the Varsity Millard South team for three consecutive years and has also made the state championship the last two years in a row including being the only Patriot to make it to the championship his sophomore year. However, he still has his eyes set higher as he chases the exclusive title of state champion entering his final season.

— Senior Harrison Clements

Since he has been golfing regularly since he has been six years old, joining the Millard South golf team has been a no brainer for Clements.

“I wanted to be a part of the golf team because it gives me the opportunity to enjoy the sport I love as well as making friends along the way,” Clements said.

Even with the program closely approaching, Clements has not taken his eyes off the ball as he swings into his final season with the Patriots. Clements and the rest of the Patriots hope to make the state championship tournament beginning May 21 at Norfolk Country Club.
