USC Aiken golf team ready to chase a national title

Wednesday September 5, 2012

Aiken, SC--When you have three national championship trophies to your credit, you know the bar is high. For USC Aiken's golf team, adding a fourth is the ultimate goal and is well within reach

Pacers made it all the way to the national quarterfinals a year ago and didn't lose anyone off the roster. From JP Solis to Matt Atkins this team is loaded. Being knocked out by the eventual champs last year in the quarterfinals is motivation enough for this crew.

"Yea we have a bunch of competitive people around here, nobody likes losing a whole lot" said Matt Atkins "You know we could sniff the finish line there in our quarterfinal match and kind of let it slip away from us and I think that's made us more hungry and everybody seems to be stepping up their game this year."

Pacers open the season this weekend in Kiawah Island with the College of Charleston serving as host.
