The Jimmy Clausen era in Carolina got off to a slow start Sunday at Bank of America Stadium. He fumbled a snap at the Bengalsâ€™ 30-yard line, his first pass flew into the chest of Cincinnati defensive end Frostee Rucker, and he threw an interception from just outside the red zone.
All that happened in the first half.
â€śI really donâ€™t get too nervous out there,â€ť Clausen said when asked about butterflies before his first career start. â€śIâ€™m just trying to go out there and execute and make plays.â€ť
Preparations for the Ensure Classic are in full swing.
The eighth annual Ensure Classic at Rock Barn presented by Kia Motors starts Monday and continues through Oct. 3.
More than 80,000 people are expected to attend the event and watch the 78 players vie for the top prize of more than $200,000, not to mention the honor of being named tournament winner.
Although the event starts Monday, crews were working for weeks to make the Ensure Classic run smoothly.
Bank of Granite Corporation announced that on Sept. 22, the company received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market notifying the company that, because of the bid price for its stock has fallen below $1 per share, it no longer complies with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on The NASDAQ Global Select Market.
