Charleston Southern looks to keep up its strong season this year heading into the Wofford Invitational. The Buccaneers have recorded seven top-10 finishes, including their first win of the year back at the Wexford Intercollegiate, as they continue to progress toward the Big South Championships and the postseason.
Freshman Alan Smith is coming off a standout performance at the Furman Intercollegiate on his way to earning Big South Men's Golf Freshman of the Week honors. He carded a 7-over 220 to help the Bucs lead all Big South teams at the tournament.
Smith's performance comes as the Big South released their latest update to the conference's scoring averages. Brandon Smith is sixth overall in the Big South at 72.52, while Connor Moore (15th, 73.61) and Elliot Gothe (16th, 73.87) provide a potent quartet for Head Coach Jason Payne.
