Tournament has been shortened to 36 holes due inclement weather the first two days

MADISON, Wisc. – South Carolina shot 289 (+1) in the opening round of the Badger Invitational on Monday and sits in eighth place after 18 holes. The first round was moved to today because of rain on Sunday. Teams were supposed to play 36 holes today but more rain allowed for just 18.

He had a strong final nine with four birdies en route to a 3-under 33.

Sophomore Gene Zeigler was the final counting score with a 73 (+1). He had an eagle and a birdie on his round one scorecard. Graduate transfer Zack Byers shot 77 (+5) in his Gamecock debut.
