Columbia, S.C. – Riding on a seven-under-par score of 65, shot by redshirt junior Nash Elliot, the University of South Carolina men’s golf team is within striking distance of earning the team title at the Seminole Intercollegiate in Tallahassee, Fla. After round one of the Seminole Intercollegiate, South Carolina stood in sixth place with a score of 290.

Before the second round of play was suspended due to darkness, Elliot managed to fire a score of 65, a career best. His score is the third lowest score posted in South Carolina history. Only four other Gamecock athletes tallied a low round score of 65.

Elliot and West Streib were the only two Gamecocks to complete round two before it was postponed until tomorrow. Streib finished the second round with a score of 73.

With one hole remaining in the second round of action, Alex Hamilton is two-under-par and Martin Rominger is even. Eirik Johansen is one-under-par with two holes left in round two. If the final three Gamecocks shot the remaining holes with even-par scores, South Carolina would post a ten-under-par score of 278 for round two, vaulting them towards the front of the pack to begin the third round.

“This is the type of round we have been looking for all year from a young squad like this,” commented Head Coach Puggy Blackmon. ” Scoring conditions were tough with the course being under water, which made Nash’s score of 65 even more impressive. If we can finish well tomorrow, we have a chance to win the tournament.”

The conclusion of round two and round three will be played on Tuesday, March 11 at the Golden Eagle Country Club.
