No. 7 Gamecocks Open Play at Mason Rudolph Championship Friday

South Carolina Athletics

Carolina playing in the event for the first time since the fall of 2017

FRANKLIN, Tenn. – No. 7 South Carolina is set to return to the Mason Rudolph Championship as the opening round gets underway Friday morning. The Gamecocks are making their seventh all-time trip to the event and first since the fall of the 2017-18 season.

It’s the same five-person lineup for Carolina that propelled the team victory at the season-opening ANNIKA Intercollegiate (Sept. 11-13) last week in Minnesota. Tournament co-champion Louise Rydqvist has the top spot in the lineup at Vanderbilt Legends Club. French freshmen Maylis Lamoure (T-5th) and Vairana Heck (T-9th), who each had top-10 finishes in their Gamecock debuts at the ANNIKA, will be in the 2-3 spots.

Two-time First Team All-American and ANNIKA Award Watch Lister Hannah Darling will be slotted fourth with sophomore Mia Sandtorv Lussand will be in the fifth spot.

It’s another strong 17-team field this week that will be a good test for a young and talented Carolina squad. Six teams alongside the Gamecocks are ranked in the top-25 of the Mizuno WGCA Coaches Poll. Carolina will see six SEC foes this weekend including four ranked programs in No. 4 LSU, No. 9 Auburn, No. 16 Ole Miss and No. 17 Vanderbilt. The Rebels are also fresh off a season-opening win at the Cougar Classic. Tiger All-American Ingrid Lindbald captured the individual crown at the same event which took place at Yeamans Hall Club in Hanahan, S.C.

Live scoring is available via Golfstat by clicking here. Sandtorv Lussand will be the first player off for the Gamecocks as 11:09 (ET). Carolina is paired with Louisville and Ole Miss for the opening 18 holes tomorrow.
