Mills Wins Festival of Flowers Invitational
Second Year in Row for Tigers Red-shirt Freshman

Clemson, SC—Clemson red-shirt freshman Parker Mills won the Festival of Flowers Amateur on Sunday when he fired a five-under par 67 in the second and final round.  The 36-hole event was played at Patriot Golf Course at Grand Harbor near Greenwood, SC.

It was the second consecutive year Mills won the tournament.  In 2012 he had a 139 for the two rounds to win by four shots.  This year he shot three strokes better after rounds of 69-67 for a 136 total.
This year’s victory was much closer as he won by just one shot and it took a birdie on the 18th hole on Sunday to do it.  Brian Amick had the lead entering the final round and was tied with Mills going to the final hole on Sunday.  But, Mills made birdie on the last hole and Amick had a par to give Mills the victory.

Earlier in the round, Mills made a 30-foot putt from off the green on the 11th hole, a shot that was a big momentum shift for the former Wren High School product, who red-shirted the 2012-13 season at Clemson.
