When Clay was very young, the family moved to Charleston, South Carolina. He grew up there, and after high school he enlisted in the United States Air Force. He served for twenty-two years. After the Air Force he was employed by Baker-Nunn Space Track. Clay then went to work in Denver, Colorado at Martin Marietta.
When he left Martin Marietta he was finally free to spend his days doing the thing he loved most, golfing. During that period, Clay made four hole-in-ones, which is a great achievement for any golfer. He loved the game and played every chance he had.
