The University of South Carolina Aiken 2

The University of South Carolina Aiken The University of South Carolina Aiken was chartered in 1961 after entering into an agreement with the University of South Carolina to establish a two-year center in Aiken. The Aiken Center opened its doors in September 1961 to 139 students. Temporarily housed in Banksia, a renovated mansion in Aiken, the Center consisted of three full-time faculty members (one of whom served as Director of the Center). In 1968, the Center underwent an institutional self-study and was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools as a branch of the University of South Carolina and as a junior college. The first associate degrees were awarded in June 1968. The campus of USC Aiken moved from Banksia to its present site in 1972 and physical changes began to occur rapidly. At first, the permanent campus consisted of 100 acres and one multipurpose building which housed all university operations. A library was completed in 1975, and additional land was donated that increased the campus to 144 acres. In October 1977, the Student Activities Center

was opened. A classroom building was occupied in 1978, and one year later, an auxiliary services building was added. An apartment complex for students, Pacer Downs, was ready for occupancy in the fall of 1984. More construction additions to the campus included completion of the Etherredge Center, Ruth Patrick Science Education Center, the Business and Education Building, and the Alan B. Miller Nursing Building. Additional land was acquired increasing the campus to 400 acres. Academic and organizational changes also occurred rapidly. The faculty formalized its organizational structure and redefined its role in the governance of the institution in 197475. Also, the students reorganized their governing body and more precisely defined their role on campus; the administration and staff structures were overhauled and expanded to meet the demands of the growing academic programs. When the full-time equivalent student enrollment reached 1,066

Top Right: The USC Aiken fountain is located at the heart of campus. Above: USC Aiken features state-of-the-art dorms including Pacer Commons pictured above.

in the fall of 1975, the USC Aiken campus was permitted to plan for senior level courses and to create a number of baccalaureate degree programs. In that same year, USCA received approval as a four-year branch campus by the Board of Trustees of the University of South Carolina, and USCA was designated a Recognized Candidate for Senior College Accreditation. In September 1976, the Board of Trustees granted academic autonomy to the Aiken Campus. The first bachelor’s degrees were granted in May 1977, and USCA became a fully accredited senior college. Presently, the college community is comprised of more than 3,200 students, over 100 full-time faculty, approximately 110 staff members, and 28 administrators. USCA awards bachelor’s degrees in more than 20 major areas of study, master’s degrees in two areas, and offers a varied program of continuing education courses for the wider community. Today USC Aiken offers students a liberal education designed to develop an understanding of human experience which will equip them for life in a free society. To accomplish this, the University provides students with an opportunity to discover learning processes which enable them to grow personally and socially. It promotes students’ interaction within a community of active scholars and artists, and it encourages students to use the knowledge which they gain to deal with the problems of a rapidly changing world.

The Peach Belt Conference 3

The Peach Belt Conference Vision Statement: The Peach Belt Conference is committed to providing through its dependent collegiate members, a forum for student participation in athletic, academic and co-curricular events under the auspices of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, Division II. We will exemplify the characteristics of a premier intercollegiate conference that prides itself on the inclusion of students of all demographic groups who wish to participate in a well-rounded sports program. Our institutions, our academic goals, our athletic aspirations reflect a communality of purpose and a commitment to excellence in the classroom and on the playing field. History: Now entering its 21st year of existence in 2010-11, the Peach Belt Conference has become one of the elite Division II conferences in the nation. Since its inception in 1990-91, the Peach Belt has developed a consistent history of excellence which continues to this day with 29 national championships and 25 national finalists. Starting with only two championships in 1991, in men’s and women’s basketball, the conference has expanded to 13 championship sports with the addition of women’s golf in the fall of 2009. The conference traces its roots back to November of 1988 when 11 schools first met in Greenville, S.C. to form a Division II conference. Following a second meeting on Dec. 3, 1989, five of those 11 schools, plus two others, formed the Peach Belt and begin play in fall 1990. The Peach Belt was less than a year old before capturing a national championship. The Columbus State golf team took the honor by winning the 1992 national crown, the first of three golf championships the Cougars own. One year later, the Lander men’s tennis team began their record-breaking run of eight straight national titles, the first PBC dynasty. Since then, USCA men’s golf has won three straight national titles from 2004-06 while Armstrong Atlantic State women’s tennis has captured four titles overall.

The 2009-10 season was among the most successful the league has seen in its 20 years. AASU won their third consecutive women’s tennis national championship while the Augusta State men’s basketball team continued their unprecedented run with a third straight appearance in the Elite Eight. Flagler became the first PBC volleyball team to reach the NCAA Final Four. The North Georgia softball team was ranked #1 in the nation in every regular-season softball poll while, in all, five PBC programs were ranked #1 in the nation (Georgia College men’s golf, ASU men’s basketball, AASU men’s and women’s tennis). The seven charter members of the conference were Armstrong Atlantic State University, Columbus State University, Francis Marion University, Georgia College, Lander University, USC Aiken and USC Upstate. The name Peach Belt Athletic Conference was adopted in January of 1990 and modified to Peach Belt Conference in May of 2000. Augusta State joined the conference in 1991 and UNC Pembroke became the ninth member on July 1, 1992. They were followed by Kennesaw State University on July 1, 1994, Clayton State University on July 1, 1995 and the University of North Florida on July 1, 1997. Kennesaw State and North Florida departed for the Division I ranks in 2005, USC Upstate did the same in 2007, and the conference welcomed in North Georgia College & State University in 2005 and Georgia Southwestern State University in 2006. In 2009-10, the Peach Belt expanded to 13 members, the most the league has ever had, with the additions of the University of Montevallo and Flagler College. The two schools also returned a league presence to Florida and broke new ground in Alabama. David Brunk was named the second PBC commissioner in May of 2007. Brunk replaced Marvin Vanover, who was the first PBC commissioner from 1991 to 2007. Brunk is charged with continuing the strong growth of the conference as its second era begins. Dr. Kendall Blanchard, president of Georgia Southwestern State University, began the first of his two-year term as the league president in July of 2010.

The conference currently holds championships in 13 sports, six for men and seven for women. They are men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s tennis, baseball, softball and men’s and women’s golf.

Palmetto Golf Club 8

Palmetto Golf Club Home of Pacer Golf

Palmetto Golf Club is the home of the USC Aiken golf team. It was founded in 1892 and is recognized as the fourth oldest golf course in the United States. The USC Aiken golf team has added to the rich history and prestige of the picturesque golf course. With the Pacers capturing the 2004, 2005, and 2006 NCAA Division II National Championships, Palmetto can now boast of being the home course for one of the most successful collegiate golf programs in the coutry, regardless of division. Palmetto joined the United States Golf Association (USGA) in the USGA’s second year of existence. Proudly displayed on the wall in the clubhouse is a membership certificate that is the oldest one still in existence.

The course itself has undergone some changes over the past century, but the most dramatic came in 1934. Alister McKenzie, the Scottish golf architect who built Augusta National, redesigned the greens. The clubhouse was built in 1902 by the same man who built the Boston Gardens, Stanford White. White constructed an exact scale model of the clubhouse at Shinnecock Hills on Long Island, N.Y. “Palmetto is a great place for our team to practice and play,” said head coach Michael Carlisle. “It is a terrific place to host our Palmetto Intercollegiate tournament at as well.” The annual Palmetto Intercollegiate has become a highly respected Division I

caliber event. In 2009, the Pacers won the event for the fourth time in its 12-year history.

NOTE: Above records also serve as program’s all-time results and coaching records as Michael Carlisle is the only coach of USC Aiken’s NCAA era.

Michael Carlisle is a self-described “late bloomer”. Maybe that would explain the patience the USC Aiken head golf coach has exhibited over the past 20 years. In 13 seasons prior to 2003-04, Carlisle had guided the Pacers to three NCAA Division II national runners-up and four more fifth-place finishes. But in 2003-04, Carlisle’s cast of one senior, three sophomores, and a freshman, after not winning a tournament all season, “bloomed” at the right time capturing the program’s third-straight NCAA Southeast Region crown and winning the school’s first-ever NCAA Championship. For his efforts, Carlisle was named the Eaton GolfPride NCAA Division II National Coach of the Year. So what does one do for an encore in 2004-05? How about winning a second consecutive NCAA Title, and dominating the rest of the regular season and postseason along the way. In 2004-05, USC Aiken put together the most dominating season in the history of Division II men’s golf, winning 11 of 13 tournaments. And unlike in 2003-04, they did not enter the NCAA Championship as a dark horse. The Pacers won the 2005 Peach Belt Conference Championship as well as their fourth-straight NCAA Southeast Region crown. The 2005-06 season brought a third-straight NCAA Championship, a fifth consecutive NCAA Southeast Region title, and a seventh Peach Belt Conference crown. En route to winning 10 of 13 tournaments in 2005-06, Carlisle had successfully established the USC Aiken program as a dynasty. Only one team in the previous 44 years of Division II men’s golf had won three-straight NCAA titles. If you ask the modest coach, he will boast only of the successful studentathletes that have been through the program.

However, it does not take much time spent in his office, looking around at the plethora of honors and accolades to determine Carlisle is among the most decorated in Division II golf. A six-time Peach Belt Conference Coach of the Year, Carlisle has been named the NCAA Division II National Coach of the Year in 2004, 2005, and 2006. He has led the program to eight PBC championships in 19 seasons in the league, including a three-peat in 1995-97 and back-to-back crowns in 2002-03 and 2005-06. The five-time NCAA Southeast Region champions have made 18 trips in the last 19 years to the NCAA Tournament, advancing to the National Championship Tournament 14 times. His career winning percentage in 19 NCAA seasons at USCA is .723 with five seasons of better than .900 and eight years of .800 or higher. During the last 19 seasons, while playing a full compliment of tournaments largely against top caliber Division I competition, Carlisle’s teams have captured 72 titles, including an amazing stretch of 23 of 28 events

Head Coach Michael Carlisle 11 from the end of 2003-04 through 2005-06, an average of 4.3 per year. USCA has also become a fixture atop the GCAA Top 25 and the Golfstat Top 10 polls. An eight-time NCAA District or Region Coach of the Year (1995-99, 2002, 2004, 2006), Carlisle has coached 45 NCAA All-Americans, nine All-Academic selections, two NCAA Players of the Year, one NCAA Freshman of the Year, seven PBC Players of the Year and 40 All-Conference selections. In 2005, Carlisle had the distinct privilege to coach Team USA in the 30th Fuji Xerox USA vs. Japan Collegiate Championship, leading the Americans to their 10th straight win. Many of Carlisle’s pupils have had successful amateur and professional golfing careers. Ryan Dillon, Aaron Black, Scott Usher, Dane Burkhart, Jeff Goff and Scott Brown are all playing professionally on various mini-tours including the Gateway Tour, the Tarheel Tour and the Nationwide Tour. An Aiken product born and raised, golf has always been a part of Carlisle’s life.

Out of high school, Carlisle walked on to play college golf at Clemson University. Although never winning a conference or national title, the Tigers were a formidable force during his time there. Carlisle, a three-year letter winner, graduated from Clemson in 1980. After college, as most golfers

do, Carlisle dreamed of playing on the PGA Tour. After competing as an amateur, Carlisle played on minitours for nearly five years. Winning a few tournaments highlighted his professional career capped by earning a spot in a PGA Tour event, the Greater Greensboro Open. When Carlisle came to USCA to take over for Paul Weiler as head golf coach, he regained his amateur status. He has won the Carolinas Amateur and the South Carolina Mid-Amateur Championships. Twice, Carlisle has advanced to the United States Amateur Championship. Carlisle stays active in the Aiken community including his work with the Junior Golf Association. Carlisle was honored in June of 2009 with the Thomas Hithcock and William C. Whitney Award at the Players Dinner for the 34th Palmetto Amateur Tournament. Carlisle is the first recipient of the award. The award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions to the game of golf in the Aiken area. Carlisle and wife, Patricia, have two sons, David and Daniel.

2010-11 Season Outlook 12

2010-11 MEN’S GOLF OUTLOOK

pacers finding their stride

Above: Coach Carlisle expects a great deal from his players and his 2010-11 squad is no different.

A great deal is expected from your program when you win three straight national championships and are helmed by a Hall of Fame coach. The USC Aiken golf team had by most accounts a fine year in the 2009-10 season, but for a program that is used to competing nationally it was not what head coach Michael Carlisle, who is now in his 21st year with the program, had envisioned. The Pacers commenced the fall of the 2010-11 season looking to get things going in the right direction, but once again it was not what Carlisle

had hoped for from his squad. “In general I thought we had a fairly mediocre fall,” said Carlisle. “We finished in the middle of the pack in almost every tournament that we played.” The Pacers begin the 2011 spring still firmly expecting to contend regionally and nationally. “I expect to get better as the year goes along,” mused Carlisle. “We have a very young team. They are extremely talented, but we have a lot to learn. This team reminds me a great deal of our first national championship team in 2004. That team did not win a tournament all year during the regular season and they then made a run all the way into winning the first of our three straight national championships.” Playing in one of the toughest regions in all of college golf is one of the reasons that Carlisle explains that it its going to take some time for his 2010-2011 squad to understand what it fully means to compete at the NCAA Division II level. “We play in the toughest conference in all NCAA Division II golf,” noted Carlisle. “There is no doubt about that fact. The Sunshine State Conference is probably a close second, but year in and year out the Peach Belt Conference produces some of the best golf in the country.” Carlisle goes on to point out that he

thinks, “overall the landscape of NCAA Division II golf has just gotten much better. Administrators and conferences all across the nation have put a great deal of emphasis on our sport and it can be seen in every tournament that we play.” The 2011 spring season for USC Aiken comes after the aforementioned fall that saw USC Aiken finish in the top 10 as a team in three of its four tournaments. The Pacers had their best finish of the fall in their final tournament, which was the Southeast Region Preview at the Tanglewood Park Golf Club in Clemmons, N.C. USC Aiken finished sixth at the event. Carlisle hopes that a great deal of hard work put in by his team in-between the last fall event of 2010 and the first spring event of 2011 will in the end pay huge dividends. It will not be easy as USC Aiken as always has one of the toughest schedules in all of NCAA golf. Nevertheless, the goal remains the same for Carlisle and his young team entering the 2011 season. “Our goals are the same this year as they always are,” remarked Carlisle. “We expect to make it to the NCAA Regionals and hopefully play our way into the national tournament where we can once again compete for a national championship.”

2009-10 Men’s Golf Season in Review Pacers Finish Strong

The USC Aiken golf team ended its year by finishing in the top 10 as a team in five tournaments over the course of the 2009-10 season. Ranked as high as 10th nationally, the Pacers closed out their year by finishing second at the Peach Belt Conference championship. Junior Frederik Schulte led all Pacers in the event with a third place finish at the 2010 Peach Belt Conference Men’s Golf Championship. Schulte at 219 finished just five strokes back of tournament

champion Jordan Walor (214) of UNC Pembroke. Schulte concluded the first round with a 73 that was quickly followed up by a strong 71 in the second round. He carded a 75 in the third and final round. Senior Kevin Grady captured his most productive season as a Pacer in 2009-10, ending the year with all-conference accolades. Grady, who posted a team-best 73.9 stroke average during the 2009-10 season, was a second team All-Peach Belt Con-

ference selection. Grady and Schulte were both tabbed to the 2009-10 Peach Belt Conference Men’s Golf All-Academic team. Grady concluded his Pacer career as a two-time winner of the award as he was also tabbed to the 2009 PBC Men’s Golf All-Academic team. Schulte is a recipient of the award for the first time in 2010. Schulte was a first team member, while Grady was dubbed a second team selection in 2010.

Coach Carlisle Hall of Fame Inductee 21

Carlisle Inducted into GCAA Hall of Fame University of South Carolina Aiken head golf coach Michael Carlisle was one of seven individuals inducted into the 2010 Golf Coaches Association of America Hall of Fame on Monday, Dec. 6. Carlisle and the rest of the group were officially honored at the GCAA Hall of Fame Reception and Awards Banquet at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas. Carlisle was one of six coaches who were inducted in the 2010 Hall of Fame Class, joining Bob Alpers of Saint John’s (Minn.), Oklahoma City’s Kyle Blaser, Texas Wesleyan’s Bobby Cornett, Steve Desimone of California and Floyd Horgan of Brevard CC and Centenary. Additionally, Ron Balicki of Golfweek was inducted for his contributions to college golf. Carlisle’s honoring comes as no surprise as he has put together one of the strongest coaching resumes in the history of collegiate golf. In 13 seasons prior to 2003-04, Carlisle had guided the Pacers to three NCAA Division II national runners-up and four more fifth-place finishes. But in 200304, Carlisle’s cast of one senior, three sophomores, and a freshman, after not winning a tournament all season, “bloomed” at the right time in capturing the program’s third-straight NCAA Southeast Region crown and winning the school’s first-ever NCAA Championship. For his efforts, Carlisle was named the Eaton GolfPride NCAA Division II National Coach of the Year. So what does one do for an encore in 2004-05? How about winning a second consecutive NCAA Title, and dominating the rest of the regular season and postseason along the way. In 2004-05,

USC Aiken put together the most dominating season in the history of Division II men’s golf, winning 11 of 13 tournaments. And unlike in 2003-04, they did not enter the NCAA Championship as a dark horse. The Pacers won the 2005 Peach Belt Conference Championship as well as their fourthstraight NCAA Southeast Region crown. The 2005-06 season brought a third-straight NCAA Championship, a fifth consecutive NCAA Southeast Region title and a seventh Peach Belt Conference crown. En route to winning 10 of 13 tournaments in 2005-06, Carlisle had successfully established the USC Aiken program as a dynasty. Only one team in the previous 44 years of Division II men’s golf had won three-straight NCAA titles. A six-time Peach Belt Conference Coach of the Year, Carlisle has been named the NCAA Division II National Coach of the Year in 2004, 2005 and 2006. He has led the program to eight PBC championships in 20 seasons in the league, including a threepeat in 1995-97 and back-to-back crowns in 2002-03 and 2005-06. The five-time NCAA Southeast Region champions have made 18 trips in the last 19 years to the NCAA Tournament, advancing to the National Championship Tournament 14 times. His career winning percentage in 19 NCAA seasons at USCA is .723 with five seasons of better than .900 and eight years of .800 or higher. During the last 19 seasons, while playing a full compliment of tournaments largely against top caliber Division I competition, Carlisle’s teams have captured 72 titles, including an amazing stretch of 23 of

28 events from the end of 2003-04 through 2005-06, an average of 4.3 per year. USC Aiken has also become a fixture atop the GCAA Top 25 and the Golfstat Top 10 polls. An eight-time NCAA District or Region Coach of the Year (1995-99, 2002, 2004, 2006), Carlisle has coached 45 NCAA All-Americans, nine All-Academic selections, two NCAA Players of the Year, one NCAA Freshman of the Year, seven PBC Players of the Year and 40 All-Conference selections. In 2005, Carlisle had the distinct privilege to coach Team USA in the 30th Fuji Xerox USA vs. Japan Collegiate Championship, leading the Americans to their 10th straight win. Many of Carlisle’s pupils have had successful amateur and professional golfing careers. Ryan Dillon, Aaron Black, Scott Usher, Dane Burkhart, Jeff Goff, Scott Brown and Roberto Diaz are all playing professionally on various mini-tours including the Gateway Tour, the Tarheel Tour and the Nationwide Tour. An Aiken product born and raised, golf has always been a part of Carlisle’s life. Out of high school, Carlisle walked on to play college golf at Clemson University. Although never winning a conference or national title, the Tigers were a formidable force during his time there. Carlisle, a three-year letterwinner, graduated from Clemson in 1980. After college, as most golfers do, Carlisle dreamed of playing on the PGA Tour. After competing as an amateur, Carlisle played on mini-tours for nearly five years. Winning a few tournaments highlighted his professional career capped by earning a spot in a PGA Tour event, the Greater Greensboro Open. When Carlisle came to USC Aiken to take over for Paul Weiler as head golf coach, he regained his amateur status. He has won the Carolinas Amateur and the South Carolina Mid-Amateur Championships. Twice, Carlisle has advanced to the United States Amateur Championship. Carlisle stays active in the Aiken community, including his work with the Junior Golf Association. Carlisle was honored in June of 2009 with the Thomas Hithcock and William C. Whitney Award at the Players Dinner for the 34th Palmetto Amateur Tournament. Carlisle was the first recipient of the award. The award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions to the game of golf in the Aiken area.

GOLF WINS SCHOOL’S FIRST-EVER NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP Pacers Pull Away on Back Nine to Win NCAA Title By Nine Strokes

USC Aiken started slow, but finished strong pulling away down the stretch to capture the 42nd NCAA Division II Men’s Golf National Championship. USCA finished at +39 for the fourday tournament, nine shots better than CSU Chico and 10 strokes in front on Barry University, giving the school its first National Championship on any kind. The 72-hole championship was to be part of a new initiative by the NCAA to gain more notoriety for Division II. Thus the “Sports Festival” was born. The men’s golf venue was the 6,966-yard, par 72 Victoria Hills Golf Club in DeLand, Fla. “This has been 14 years coming,” said Michael Carlisle, the five-time Peach Belt Conference Coach of the Year. “We feel like we probably should have won it two or three times before this, but this is a hard goal to achieve and I’m just so happy for our players and those who came down here to support us.”

Above: Scott Brown led the Pacers to their first-ever NCAA Title in 2004, finishing tied for fourth in the individual standings.

Competing in the Division II National Championship Tournament for the 10th time in their 13 years as an NCAA member, USCA had finished runner-up three times in the previous eight year (1995, 1996, 1999). On day one, Columbus State was the surprise team taking the round one lead at three-over-par. CSU Stanislaus was in second, four shots back at seven-over-par. West Florida was third at +7, while the Pacers found themselves tied for seventh with AASU, 13 shots back. The Pacers had more success in Thursday’s second round by, along with Chico State and Barry, posting the only sub-300 team totals of the day. USCA’s 297 vaulted them four spots into third at the midway poll. As round three drew to a close, drama was king on 18. James McGhee, Scott Brown, and Dane Burkhart all birdied the par five finishing hole to bring the Pacers from two shots back to making USCA the third round leader by one over Barry and two ahead of Chico State. Brown keyed the charge by birdying his final three holes. Rainy conditions dominated much of Saturday afternoon’s final round proving the Pacers would have to show they could “mud” their way to the win. Led by Burkhart and Brown’s 73’s, the Pacers’ 298 was the best of the day, easily besting Chico State’s 305 and Barry’s 307 to claim the nine-stroke victory and the first national championship of any kind in the school’s history. One impressive note

to the victory regarding the weather is that the Pacers did it in all conditions, the windy, humid, afternoon heat of Central Florida, the cooler morning round with dew on the course, and lastly the rainy conditions of Saturday’s final round. USCA did it with one senior, three sophomores, and one freshman. “We were very fortunate today, you could play the same situation tomorrow and another team would win,” said Carlisle. “There are a lot of good, quality teams in the tournament and to be able to win this thing against such good teams just makes it all that much better.” Brown led the Pacers on Saturday and finished at 295, or seven-over-par, to tie for fourth. Three birdies and four bogeys on the front side had the sophomore making the turn at one-over-par. After bogeying the par three 12th, Brown birdied the par four 17th to shoot even-par 36 on the back.

Burkhart also shot a 73 on Saturday to finish with a 296, or eight-over-par, for the tournament and tie with teammate Clint Smith for sixth place. Burkhart recorded one birdie and two bogeys on the front while shooting even-par 36 on the back side. Smith started slow with a double bogey on one and back-to-back bogeys on six and seven to move to threeover-par entering the ninth. He birdied nine, bogeyed 10, and then rattled off sevenstraight pars until his birdie on 18 in front of a huge gallery of onlookers capped his 75. McGhee and senior Bryan Sangid each carded final round 77’s. McGhee finished with a 308 to tie for 44th, while Sangid closed out his collegiate career with a 312, tying for 62nd in the 102-player field. J.J. Jakovac of CSU Chico finished with a total of 287 to win the individual title.

BACK-TO-BACK: USC AIKEN DEFENDS NCAA GOLF TITLE Dane Burkhart Wins Pacers’ First-Ever Individual National Title

Above (l to r): Tyler Rolley, Scott Brown, Casey Thompson, Clint Smith, Dane Burkhart, and Head Coach Michael Carlisle after winning the 2005 NCAA Division II Championship at the Club at Savannah Harbor.

USC Aiken capped off the most dominating season in the history of NCAA Division II men’s golf with the program’s secondstraight NCAA Division II National Championship on May 20, 2005. The top-ranked Pacers held off a determined Armstrong Atlantic State team to win by five shots after posting a final round nine-over-par 293. Junior Dane Burkhart won the individual national title by one stroke at fiveunder-par, the Pacers first-ever NCAA medalist. USCA is just the eighth school, and the first team since Florida Southern (1999-2000), to repeat as Division II men’s golf champions. In a record setting year, USC Aiken won an amazing 11 of 13 tournaments including two Division I events, the 2005 Peach Belt Conference Championship

(the program’s sixth), the NCAA Southeast Regional, (fourth-straight) and the NCAA D-II Championship. In addition to earning the Outback Steakhouse Arnold Palmer award as the low medalist, Burkhart, the PBC Co-Player of the Year, was named to the PING All-America First-Team and was selected as the D-II Player of the Year with the Jack Nicklaus award. For the second-straight year, the Pacers opened the 72-hole tournament with their worst round on day one. Battling the heat and windy conditions of the afternoon tee times, the Pacers were tied for eighth at 10-over-par. Wednesday’s second round was an improved fourover-par 288 highlighted by Burkhart and Scott Brown’s three-under-par 68’s. After second round play was completed early Thursday morning, the Pacers found themselves in a familiar spot,

on top of the leaderboard. A one-under-par 283 in round three gave the team a four-stroke cushion heading into the final round. Leading by as many as nine and as few as two throughout Friday’s final 18, the Pacers still bested the host AASU Pirates by one shot on the day and finished in front by five. St. Edwards, in their first appearance at the NCAA Championship, placed third, six more shots back at 33-over-par. CSU Bakersfield was fourth at 34-over-par while Hawaii-Hilo rounded out the top five at +37. Even through five holes, Burkhart bogeyed three of four heading into the turn to tee off on 10 at two-over-par. After a bogey five on 11 to fall to three-over-par, and two back of Hawaii-Hilo’s Nick Mason in the individual race, Burkhart rebounded to birdie the par five 13th. Then on the par three 17th, Burkhart placed his tee shot within eight feet of the cup and knocked in the putt for the eventual individual race winner, finishing at one-overpar 72. Brown, also the PBC CoPlayer of the Year, registered his 11th top 10 finish of the season, tying for 10th at five-over-par for the 72 holes. He too was named to the PING All-America First-Team following the championship as USCA was the only school to place multiple players on the eight-member team. An even-par 71 characterized by four birdies and four bogeys kept the North Augusta native in the top 10 at the NCAA Championship for the second-straight year.

THREE-TIME NCAA DII NATIONAL CHAMPIONS (2004, 2005, 2006)

Three-straight birdies had him at three-under-par through six holes, but three bogeys on the back side including one on 18 prevented the junior from posting red numbers. Sophomore Clint Smith carded a four-over-par 75 and finished tied for 20th at nine-over-par. A triplebogey six on the par three 17th cost the Asheboro, N.C. product some strokes, but he did ease that pain with birdies on 16 and 18. Casey Thompson capped an impressive performance with a top 50 finish out of the 105-player field in his first NCAA Championship. The freshman from North Augusta tied for 46th at 16-over-par. Tyler Rolley struggled through 23 holes of the tournament, playing them at 21-over-par. However, Rolley played the final 49 holes at just five-over-par following a final round 77 to place tied for 85th.

2005-06 NCAA National Championship 24

DYNASTY: USC AIKEN CLAIMS THIRD-STRAIGHT NCAA TITLE Top-Ranked Pacers Wonderful in West Virginia Three-Peat

USC Aiken continued its grip of dominance on the golf world capturing the program’s third-straight NCAA Division II Men’s Golf National Championship on May 19, earning the title of “golf dynasty”. The top-ranked Pacers (+28) turned in the wire-towire victory by holding off a final round charge by fellow Peach Belt Conference foe Columbus State. In the end, USCA saved their best for last, firing a final round of even-par 280, easily the best score of the tournament, finishing 12 strokes in front of the Cougars and 21 shots in front of secondranked CSU-Bakersfield. The Pacers became just the second team in the 44-year history of Division II golf to win three consecutive NCAA Championships, joining Florida Southern (1998-2000). The numbers over the last three years are staggering including winning 10 of 13 tournaments in 2005-06 and 23 of their last 28 dating

Above: Scott Brown was presented with the Jack Nicklaus Award as the 2006 Division II National Player of the Year following the NCAA National Championship.

back to 2003-04. Two PBC Championships (seven overall) and five-straight NCAA Southeast Region titles are tossed in for good measure. Unlike the first two national championships, USC Aiken was going for the wire-to-wire win. The Pacers carried a slim three-shot edge over CSU-Bakersfield into the final round and were eight in front of Columbus State. After expanding the lead slightly, the Pacers stumbled a bit as they approached the turn. Two bogeys and a double on 10 found USCA with just a one shot advantage over the Roadrunners and four up on the Cougars. As CSU-Bakersfield began to waiver, Columbus State charged into second place and battled USC Aiken down the stretch. In the end, the Pacers finished threeunder-par as a team on the back side. It is the fourth-straight golf NCAA Championship for the PBC and the secondstraight year the conference has gone one-two in the standings. In 2004, USC Aiken battled the heat and wind for which Central Florida is noted. In 2005 in Savannah, it was Mother Nature’s force being felt in the form of thunderstorms. To complete the trifecta of weather obstacles, the Pacers proved they could win in any conditions including unseasonably cold temperatures in the 40’s with 20 mph winds. Lynn (+58) finished fourth, 30 shots behind the Pacers, while CSUStanislaus (+59) was fifth. Jamie Amoretti of St.

Mary’s (Texas) carded a final round 71 to win medalist honors at even-par 280, keeping senior Dane Burkhart from repeating as NCAA Individual Champion by one stroke. The two entered the final round tied at one-under-par, but three-straight bogeys on seven, eight, and nine had the Aiken native making the turn at four-over-par. Still four-over after 14, Burkhart birdied the par four 15th and then sank an 18-footer on 17 for a birdie two, setting up the drama on 18. Already having birdied the par five finishing hole once this week, Burkhart had a 15-footer, slightly uphill, to force a play-off, but the putt just rolled past the hole, leaving him with par and a final round of two-over-par 72. Burkhart finished in sole possession of second place at one-over-par 281. In addition to Burkhart’s run, the other four Pacers posted their best rounds of the week on Friday, led by freshmen Roberto Diaz and Matt Giftos.

Diaz played the final six holes at three-under-par to shoot a final round 69 and claim sole possession of fourth place, finishing with a four-over-par 284 for the 72 holes. Giftos recorded his best round of the year, a two-under-par 68. Senior Scott Brown, the newly crowned 2006 Division II Player of the Year, just missed his 12th top 10 finish in 13 events this year, placing tied for 11th at 12-over-par. Brown and Burkhart round out their collegiate careers as the one and two all-time leading scorers in Pacer history.
