The USC Upstate men’s golf team will make the trip to Madison, Wisc., to play in the Badger Invitational for the second consecutive year as the Spartans play their second tournament of the season Sept. 28-30.
Wisconsin hosts the Badger Invitational at University Ridge Golf Course, ranked No. 3 in the nation among college golf courses. The course plays at 7,259 yards and is a par-72 layout. The teams will play 54 holes with 18 holes played each day, Sunday-Tuesday. Upstate fared well in last year’s tournament, finishing fourth behind South Carolina, Kansas and Illinois. The Spartans would have finished second to South Carolina except for a scorecard miscue which negated a 70 turned in by Ryan Cornfield in the second round. Had his round counted, the Spartans would have picked up seven shots and finished one shot ahead of Kansas in second.
