Nov 2023 CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Capturing his first career tournament victory while posting his career-low 18-hole scoring total at the Big South Preview at Fripp Island, USC Upstate men's golf's Alec Prentice added to his weekly hardware with his first career Big South Men's Golfer of the Week honor.
A Wellington, New Zealand native, Prentice captured his first career event win—and Upstate's first individual event win since the 2020-21 season—behind scores of 65-71-136. Leading to his victory, his opening-round 65 tied for the second-lowest round by score and tied for the third-lowest round relative to par in program history.
