In American sports terminology, "clutch" means performing well under extreme pressure. It often refers to high levels of production in a critical game (such as Game 7 of a best-of-seven series), the last hole of a Major Championship golf tournament, or the final minute(s) in a close match. Being "clutch" is often (perhaps erroneously) seen by sportswriters and fans as an innate skill to be possessed—some players have it, some players do not.
Clutch is a musical group from Germantown, Maryland in the United States. They have been playing together since the early 1990s, producing records at a rate of approximately one per year. They released their first EP, Pitchfork, in October of 1991.
