CAMDEN, S.C. – South Carolina’s bid for a three-peat at the Camden Collegiate Invitational fell short Sunday as the team finished second after shooting a final round 293 (+13). The team shot 859 (+19) over the course of the two-day event. James Madison won the tournament after shooting a final round 280 for a total tally of 850 (+10).

Junior Keenan Huskey was tied at the top of the leaderboard in the final group with James Madison’s Ryan Cole after 18 holes Sunday at 5-under. Huskey and Cole went to a one-hole playoff to determine the individual champion. Huskey’s 20-foot birdie attempt from below the hole on 17 fell just short. Cole was able to make birdie and take home medalist honors after sticking his approach shot within five-feet of the cup. Huskey recored his first top-five finish of the year after earning runner-up medalist honors.

Sophomore Scott Stevens tallied the low-score of the day for Carolina after shooting a 71 (+1). The Chattanooga, Tenn., native shot 215 (+5) for the tournament and finished tied for sixth individually. It was Stevens’ second-straight top-10 finish for the Gamecocks.

Junior Ben Dietrich shot 75 (+5) Sunday to finish the tournament at 10-over (220). Dietrich recorded his first top-20 finish of the season after tying for 17th individually.

Sophomore Ryan Stachler also tied for 17th individually at 10-over after shooting a final day 75 (+5). Like Dietrich, it was Stachler’s first top-20 finish of the season.

Junior Alex Handy, who made his season debut this weekend for the Gamecocks, tied for 48th individually after tallying a 76 (+6) Sunday. Handy shot 19-over (229) for the tournament.

Sophomore Will Miles, playing individually, tied for sixth with Stevens at 5-over after shooting a final round 74 (+4). The top-10 finish was Miles first of the season.

True freshman Caleb Proveaux tied for 34th in his first career tournament as a Gamecock after recording a final score of 225 (+15). Proveaux, who also played individually this weekend, shot a new career best 73 (+3) in the final round Sunday.

Quoting Coach Jake Amos

“Not the weekend we were looking for. The course exposed our weaknesses and the guys will definitely learn a lot from this. It’s going to sting for a little while not getting the win, but it’s what we need and the guys will come out a lot stronger. No excuses. We just weren’t good enough this weekend.”

Round Changer

Keenan Huskey had his third career top-five finish Sunday after earning runner-up medalist honors. He’s finished in the top-20 in all three of Carolina’s tournaments this fall. The junior from Greenville, S.C. led the field in par-5 scoring average at 4.33 after shooting 6-under on the long holes for the tournament. Huskey finished tied for fourth with 11 birdies.


  • The Gamecocks led the field in par-4 scoring average (4.17) and par-5 scoring average (4.80).
  • Carolina led the field in pars with 174 and tied for sixth in the field with 31 birdies.
  • The Gamecocks tied for the field lead in eagles with two.
  • Stevens and Dietrich finished tied for the field lead in pars with 37 apiece.
