The Chattanooga, Tenn. native posted two birdies en route to his one-under par round on the backstretch. Stevens is T-41 individually.

  • The Gamecocks had 20 birdies and one eagle on the day.
  • Wilson made his collegiate debut on Friday, while Dietrich was in action for the first time since the 2015 Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate.
