Cydney Clanton

Cydney Clanton has never taken her foot off the gas pedal. Now a junior at Auburn University, Clanton burst onto the scene as a freshman when she was named both a National Golf Coaches Association First-Team All-American and NGCA Freshman of the Year. From there it only got better as she posted multiple victories and numerous top 10s as well as being named to the All-SEC First-Team twice. Clanton also has played in two LPGA major championships, the 2008 U.S. Open and last week’s Kraft Nabisco Championship.
