Great comeback for the men, who started today in 7th place four shots off the cutline. I haven't seen a story yet on Gamecocksonline, but the Golf Channel ( called us the "Story of the Day" for the Pullman regional.

In the only playoff of this regional season, the third-seeded Gamecocks needed extra holes against No. 7 Colorado State to determine their NCAA fate.

In the five-count-five playoff on Palouse Ridge’s par-5 18th hole, South Carolina got the job done. Ryan Stachler’s birdie proved to be the difference as his teammates added four pars.

The Rams, who were looking for their first NCAA Championship berth under coach Christian Newton, shot even par in the playoff.

Stachler made up for his closing 5-over 75 that didn’t count toward South Carolina’s 13-under team score. Scott Stevens and Ryan Hall each shot 65 while Will Miles added a 66. The Gamecocks’ counters combined for just five bogeys Wednesday.

Colorado State closed in 9 under and threw out a 70. But the Rams couldn’t keep the pace of a blazing start that featured 16 first-nine birdies."
