Wilmington, N.C. – The South Carolina women’s golf team posted a second-round 314 (+26) on Saturday at the Landfall Tradition at the Country Club of Landfall’s Jack Nicklaus Course.

The Gamecocks are tied for eighth place with a two-round score of 621 (+45) heading into Sunday’s final round. Saturday proved to be an even tougher day for low scores than the first, as there were no rounds of even par or better.

“It was another day of very windy conditions,” South Carolina head coach Kalen Harris said. “Maintaining a positive attitude and staying tough tomorrow will be imperative. With a good team effort tomorrow we can finish very well.”

Senior Katie Burnett carded a 76 (+4) for the second straight day to lead the way for the Gamecocks. Burnett was 2-over heading into the final hole but she recorded a double bogey on the 18th to head into the clubhouse at 4-over in a tie for ninth.

Juniors Amanda Strang and Meredith Swanson each shot 79 (+7) on Saturday. Strang moved into a tie for 16th with a two-day score of 154, while Swanson is tied for 33rd with a score of 157.

Sophomores Samantha Swinehart and Katie Rose Higgins turned in rounds of 80 and 82, respectively for the Gamecocks.

Purdue heads into the final round on top of the leaderboard with a score of 607 (+31), followed by Auburn (609), Duke (617), Ohio State (619) and North Carolina (619).

Auburn’s Victoria Trapani carded a second-round 73 (+1) and is in the lead with a two-round score of 145 (+1).

The Gamecocks are paired with Iowa State and Notre Dame for Sunday’s final round and will tee off at 8:45 a.m. with a shotgun start. Live scoring is available at
