Men's Golf at General Hackler Championship
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- South Carolina was unable to make the push it needed to climb the leaderboard on Sunday, as it shot 296 (+8) in the final round of the General Hackler Championship. The Gamecocks placed 10th in the 15-team field.
Senior Keenan Huskey was the only golfer in the lineup to shoot par or better as he carded a 72 in the third round to finish T-22nd. The Greenville, S.C., native had four birdies to lead the team. He bounced back from a double bogey on his opening hole this morning shooting 2-under over his final 17 holes.
No. 8 Georgia Tech took home the team title with a five-shot win over No. 2 Texas A&M. The Jackets turned in a 7-under 281 today. Tech's Chris Petefish took home medalist honors after carding a three-round total of 209 (-7).
QUOTING COACH Bill McDonald
"It was a frustrating week, but I'm excited about getting some new guys in the lineup for our next event. I'm hoping we can find the right mix of buy-in, pride and toughness to get back to competing at a high level.
ROUND CHANGER Keenan Huskey
Huskey posted back-to-back even par 72s to conclude the tournament, his 12th and 13th rounds of par or better this season. Five of his six rounds this spring have been played at par or better. The 2017 All-SEC and PING All-Southeast Region selection has shot par or better 55 times in his four-year career as a Gamecock.
The Gamecocks head to Palm City, Florida to compete in the Valspar Collegiate Invitational on March 18-20. The annual tournament, played at Floridian Golf Club, features one of the best fields in the country every year.
