FRANKLIN, Tenn. — South Carolina freshman Sean Kelly posted a 1-under 70 on Sunday to lead the Gamecocks in the final round of the Mason Rudolph Championship at the Vanderbilt Legends Club South Course. South Carolina shot a final-round 288 (+4) to finish the tournament in 11th place with a three-round score of 877 (+25).

Kelly got off to a strong start as he started the day at the 10th hole and carded a birdie. The Staten Island, N.Y., native recorded his second birdie of the day on the 14th and he went on to make the turn at 34 (-2). Kelly fell back to even with back-to-back bogeys on the first and second holes but he birdied the sixth and made par the rest of the way to wrap up the round at 1-under to finish in a tie for 31st.

Sophomores Blaine Woodruff and Caulder Moore also had solid rounds for the Gamecocks with a pair of 1-over 72s. Woodruff finished in a tie for 55th, while Moore tied for 51st.

Woodruff made the turn at 36 (E) and moved to 1-under with a birdie at hole No. 1. However, bogeys at the second and ninth holes left him at 1-over for the round.

Moore carded a 37 (+1) on the front side and started the back nine with a birdie. Bogeys at the fourth and fifth holes left Moore at 2-over on the day, but he birdied the eighth to go back to 1-over, where he finished the day.

Junior Dykes Harbin was the second-highest finisher for the Gamecocks, claiming a tie for 34th after a final-round 75 (+4). Senior Wesley Bryan wrapped up the event in a tie for 39th after carding a 74 (+3).

Middle Tennessee State shot a 279 (-5) to claim the title with a three-round score of 844 (-8), followed by Mississippi (845) and Georgia Southern (848). Middle Tennessee State’s Hunter Green won medalist honors with a final-round 67 (-4), which gave him a three-round score of 205 (-8).
