South Carolina will be making its 26th all-time appearance at NCAA Regionals since 1988 with 20 all-time appearances in the NCAA Championships. The Gamecocks have made regionals in 11 of the 12 seasons under head coach Bill McDonald, including six NCAA Championship apperances and a program-best four-straight from 2013-16. 

Serving as the interim head coach, McDonald led Carolina to the 2007 NCAA West Regional Title, the program's first and only regional championship. Three-time All-American Kyle Thompson, who is currently playing on the PGA TOUR, earned individual medalist honors at NCAA Regionals two times (1999, 2001). Fellow three-time All-American Matt NeSmith came close to joining Thompson as the program's only individual regional champions in 2016, earning runner-up medalist honors at the NCAA Tuscaloosa Regional. 

McDonald helped lead South Carolina to its highest finish ever at the NCAA Championship in 2016, as the team advanced to match play for the first time in program history and finished T-5th.
