Building off of another successful season, the South Carolina Men’s Golf team has been ranked 13th in Golfweek’s preseason poll.
Joining the Gamecocks in the top 25 are six SEC schools including No. 1 Florida, No. 2 Georgia, No. 10 Auburn, No. 12 Kentucky, No. 19 Tennessee, and No. 23 Vanderbilt.
Also mentioned was South Carolina junior Eirik Johansen, who Golf Week named a Preseason All-American (third team). Johansen looks to improve off his strong showing last season, in which he had six top 10 finishes.
Johansen and Alex Hamilton are listed as two of the top 100 returnees in Golfweek as well. Johansen is No. 56 with a power ranking of 71.33, while Hamilton is No. 90 with a power ranking of 71.87.
In addition, individually freshman Warren Thomas is listed as one of the Freshman to Watch by Golfweek.
South Carolina will next compete Oct. 10-12 at the Gary Koch Classic in Tampa, FL.
