WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — South Carolina sits in ninth place at the NCAA West Lafayette Regional after dropping several shots down the stretch on Tuesday. The wind was humming and conditions were tough on the Kampen Course as the Gamecocks shot 302 (+14). Freshman Jamie Wilson and sophomore Will Miles each carded 75s (+3) to lead the team.

Wilson, who is T-32nd, fired a 37 (+1) on the front nine and a 38 (+2) on the back nine with three birdies on the day. The Mount Pleasant, S.C., native had one of just two birdies on hole 17 in the second round. His birdie on 17 is one of four the entire tournament through 36 holes.

Miles recorded an even par 36 on the front nine with three birdies. He shot 3-over (39) on the back nine with one red number. His four birdies on Tuesday led the team. The Hilton Head Island, S.C., native is T-43rd at 7-over.

Sophomore Ryan Stachler had a nice round going as he was 1-over through 17 holes. The Alpharetta, Ga., native, hooked his tee shot off the tee on hole 18 and ended up triple bogeying the hole to card a 4-over 76. All-SEC selection Keenan Huskey had trouble with 18 as well. He carded an eight after an arrant tee shot to finish with an 8-over 80. Stachler is T-26th at 4-over and Huskey is T-32nd at 5-over. Sophomore Scott Stevens is T-48th after tallying a 4-over round of 76. The Chattanooga, Tenn., native posted three birdies in the second round.

New Mexico leads the team race after two rounds. The Lobos shot 6-under (282) to take a three shot lead over No. 17 UNLV heading into the final day. No. 5 Florida, No. 20 Auburn and host school Purdue are all T-3rd rounding out the top five. Trent Wallace of Illinois State is alone at the top of the individual leaderboard at 6-under. He shot a 2-under 70 on Tuesday.

Quoting Coach Bill McDonald

“It was a tough day for us and very frustrating in that we got off to a solid start through most of the front nine. We seemed to lose our focus on the inward nine and let it get away from us. Anything around par today was really good in those conditions and there are some teams ahead of us that played really well. We’ll have to play a lot better tomorrow to advance, but this team is certainly capable. I’m looking forward to seeing how they respond.”


  • Carolina leads the field in par-5 scoring average at 4.73 (-11).
  • Hole 18 played as the hardest hole on the course in the second round. 41 players bogeyed the hole with an average score of 4.68.
  • The Gamecocks 29 birdies are tied for third best in the field.

Up Next for the Gamecocks

South Carolina will be paired with Augusta and St. Mary’s for Wednesday’s final round. Scott Stevens will lead things off for the Gamecocks at 7:30 a.m. on hole 10.
