COLUMBIA, S.C. – The top-ranked South Carolina women’s golf program has signed Isidora Nilsson to a National Letter of Intent, head coach Kalen Harris announced Tuesday.

“We’re very excited to welcome Isi Nilsson to the team,” Harris said. “She is going to bring a lot of excitement to our team. Isi has won a lot of area junior events and has played on the Hurricane Junior Tour while also competing on the international level. She knows how to win and we look forward to seeing her learn how to win at a higher level. She has the skill set to develop into a world-class player. She has an incredible golf swing, and I think she’s going to get better and better as she progresses through our program. She’s been at the Junior PGA Academy in Hilton Head. They’ve done an incredible job in progressing her game, and she definitely has the ability to shoot some really low numbers.”
