Will Muschamp knows how much the area means to the Gamecock Club and South Carolina athletics, which is why he made sure his staff was in attendance for the ninth annual William Rhea Memorial Golf Tournament at the Florence Country Club on Monday, May 16.

“It’s one of the most loyal clubs that we have,” Muschamp said. “This is an annual event, and it’s important for us to be here. We pulled all nine assistants and our strength staff (for the couple of hours before going back out on the road), and they are here today to come visit with everybody. It’s an important area for us.”

Florence Gamecocks president Michael “Scat” Scaturro was extremely appreciative that Muschamp, his staff, South Carolina men’s basketball head coach Frank Martin and equestrian associate head coach/western coach Ruth Sorrel were in attendance on what was truly as Scaturro said a “Chamber of Commerce” day.

“We have a big field, and we’re raising some money for the Gamecocks,” Scaturro said.

Before the large field in the tournament took to the course, Scaturro presented Muschamp and Gamecock football with a $4,000 check.
