No. 3 Gamecocks Finalize Spring Slate
Team will play in five events including hosting the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate
COLUMBIA, S.C. — No. 3 South Carolina women’s golf announced its 2022 spring schedule on Monday. The Gamecocks will play in five events before beginning postseason play at the SEC Championship (April 17-22).
“Our team continues to grow and gain confidence from playing one of the strongest competitive schedules in the country year after year,” said head coach Kalen Anderson. “The 2022 spring schedule will provide us with top-ranked fields, championship venues, and a mix of stroke play and match play events that will prepare us properly for postseason play in April and May.”
Carolina opens the spring at the Moon Golf Invitational in Melbourne, Fla. Feb. 20-22.
The team will then return home for the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate Feb. 28-March 2. This marks the 10th edition of the tournament, which was not held last year because of COVID-19. Long Cove Club, in partnership with Darius Rucker and South Carolina, will again play host on Hilton Head Island. This year’s tournament features a loaded field: Alabama, Arizona State, Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Duke, Furman, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Louisville, North Carolina, Northwestern, Texas, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest.
The Gamecocks will then compete at the Valspar Invitational (Augusta, Ga.) March 12-13 and the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic (Athens, Ga.) March 25-27. Carolina’s final regular season event will be the Wolf Pack Match Play (Raleigh, N.C.) April 3-4.
This year’s SEC Championship will take place at Greystone Golf and Country Club for the ninth consecutive season. It will feature both stroke play and match play for the fourth-straight season. The championship match will be televised live on the SEC Network.
The NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Committee approved moving to a six-regional format beginning this spring. Each of the six regional sites will now feature 12 teams and six individuals, with the top four teams and top two individuals (not on an advancing team) qualifying for the NCAA Championship. Regionals will take place May 10-12 with the NCAA Championship to follow May 20-25 at Grayhawk Golf Club again.
