COLUMBIA, S.C. – The University of South Carolina Men’s and Women’s Golf programs are proud to announce a partnership with Grow Financial Federal Credit Union, one of the leading Credit Unions in the United States. Grow Financial will team with the Gamecocks to sponsor both team’s social media initiatives as well as providing additional support to both teams.

“Grow Financial has a long, proud history of involvement in the communities we serve,” said Chase D. Clelland, Vice President of Operations at Grow Financial. “When we first came to Columbia, we definitely wanted to team up with the University of South Carolina, which has such a strong, positive presence here. We certainly hope our sponsorship of the USC men’s and women’s golf teams helps these student-athletes achieve their dreams on the course, and over the course of their lives.”

“I am proud to partner with Grow Financial and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship,” said Gamecock Head Men’s Golf Coach Bill McDonald. “Both Carolina golf teams strive to be the best in college golf by training scholar-athletes who win national and conference championships. The folks at Grow Financial also strive to be the best in their field, so it just makes sense for our programs to partner with their organization.”

“We’re really excited to be associated with Grow Financial moving forward,” said Women’s Golf Coach Kalen Anderson. “It’s a relationship that both sides will be proud to be a part of for a long time.”
