ROCKY FACE, Ga. — South Carolina recorded a final-round 300 (+12) and tied for 11th place on Sunday afternoon to wrap up play at the Carpet Capital Collegiate at The Farm Golf Club. The Gamecocks finished the week with a team total of 890 (+26).

Junior Dykes Harbin proved to be the most consistent Gamecock during the weekend as he posted a 72 (E) on Sunday to finish the tournament in a tie for 21st with rounds of 73-73-72=218 (+2). Harbin, who started his day at hole No. 10 with the rest of the Gamecocks, had an uneventful front nine. A birdie at No. 11 and back-to-back bogeys at the 16th and 17th left the Augusta, Ga., native with a 1-over 37 at the turn. After a birdie at hole No. 2 and a bogey at the fourth, Harbin caught fire with birdies on three of the next four holes to move to 2-under, but a double bogey on his final hole, No. 9, gave him a 36 (E) on the back side to finish his round at even.

Sophomore Blaine Woodruff improved his score for the third straight day with a 1-over 73 as he finished in a tie for 35th with rounds of 76-74-73=223 (+7). Woodruff had birdies at hole Nos. 14 and 17 and a bogey at the 16th to card a 35 (-1) on the front nine, but after a birdie at the first to start the back side, Woodruff made five pars and three bogeys down the stretch to finish his day at 1-over.

After posting the Gamecocks’ tournament low with a 3-under 69 on Saturday, senior Wesley Bryan was unable to carry that momentum into the final round. He struggled to a 6-over 78 to wrap up the tournament in a tie for 42nd with rounds of 78-69-78=225 (+9).

Sophomore Caulder Moore made the turn at even par but fell back on the back nine with four bogeys and a double bogey as he turned in a 77 (+5) for the round, while sophomore Logan Harrell posted an 82 (+10) for the Gamecocks.

Auburn shot a final-round 282 (-6) to claim the title with a team total of 851 (-13), while Tennessee claimed second with a score of 856 (-8). Host Georgia Tech finished third at 857 (-7) despite tying the tournament record with a round of 274 (-14) on Sunday. Alabama’s Justin Thomas fired a 65 (-7) to win medalist honors with rounds of 71-70-65=206 (-10), finishing four shots ahead of Chattanooga’s Benjamin Weilguni who turned in rounds of 72-67-71=210 (-6).

The Gamecocks will have two weeks to prepare for their next tournament as they return to action on Sept. 23 in the Mason Rudolph Championship at the Vanderbilt Legends Course in Franklin, Tenn. South Carolina finished second in the event last season.
