FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Both South Carolina golf programs will compete in the Blessings Collegiate Invitational Oct. 2-4 hosted by Arkansas. Golf Channel will provide live TV coverage of the event from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. (ET) each day.

The field consists of nine men’s and women’s teams. Arkansas, Clemson, Minnesota, Mississippi State, NC State, North Texas and Washington will all compete alongside Carolina this week at Blessings Golf Club, which played host to the 2019 NCAA Championship.

The Gamecocks last competed in the event in 2020, and it was an all-SEC field. The women’s team finished third and the men’s team finished fourth.

It’s the same lineup this week for the sixth-ranked women’s team. Junior All-Americans Louise Rydqvist and Hannah Darling have the top two spots in the lineup. Rydqvist has a win and a top-five in her first two starts and Darling has a pair of top-20 finishes. Sophomore Mia Sandtorv Lussand will be slotted third. The team’s duo of French freshmen, Maylis Lamoure and Vairana Heck, round out the team’s starting five.

On the men’s side, transfer Frankie Harris is slotted in the No. 1 spot. He’s joined this week by freshman Bo Carpenter, sophomore Zach Adams, transfer Laurens Schulze-Doering and sophomore Walker Jennings. Schulze-Doering is making his second straight start and Jennings is making his lineup debut after playing in three tournaments as an individual his freshman campaign.
