From Denver, Clark followed ex-Duck Aaron Wise, the 2016 NCAA individual champion, in the national voting.

Clark also is the fifth consecutive golfer from the Pac-12 to be Golfweek's D-I player of the year.

Golfweek's All-America teams had Clark on the first team and Oregon's Norman Xiong on the second team.
