Men's golf earns first place and Camden title

South Carolina men's golf team snagged another Camden Collegiate Invitational title for the second straight year. In a total of three rounds, the Gamecocks finished with an overall score of 838 (-2).

There were five competitors in the invitational, including red-shirt senior Sean Kelly and sophomore Kennan Huskey. There were also three freshmen: Scott Stevens, Will Miles and Ryan Stachler. South Carolina bypassed Charleston Southern and Furman who finished second and third, respectively.

Huskey finished with his premiere medalist honors in the third round, with a score of  68 (-2). He finished the weekend with a total score of 205. Huskey managed to finish the invitational with a new team record of 12 birdies. Head coach Bill McDonald was impressed by the team's first win for the fall season.

“It was a great win for our guys, and I’m really happy for Keenan. I think we created some great building blocks for the future of our program, and I am excited for the remainder of this season as well," McDonald said. "The golf we played as a team over the last 45 holes of the event was truly special.”

In his first season, Miles finished this invitational strong with a second place finish and only two under par. The Gamecocks finished with the most birdies in the tournament with 51. This also marks the first time the team went under par since last season in the NCAA Regionals.

South Carolina will end the fall season in Hawaii in the Ka'anapali Collegiate Invitational from Nov. 6 to 8.
