CSU finished second at the Big South Championship in 2014, nearly overtaking champion Liberty with a final-round five-under team total that ranks as the sixth-lowest in program history. Senior David Denlinger led the way with a second place individual finish, capping off an excellent career with 314-stroke total of two-under par. Freshman Austin James also showcased his potential on the final day of the tournament, firing a seven-under 65, the third-lowest round in Championship history. Denlinger's fellow senior, Ross Thomson, was named to the Big South's All-Conference team as well.

After concluding his four-year playing career at CSU in 1999, Wilson joined the Buccaneers as an assistant coach from 1999-2000.  He spent seven years as the Golf Assistant and Director of Instruction as the Seabrook Island Club on John’s Island, S.C., before joining the Top Golf Academy in Alexandria, Va., as a teaching professional in 2006.  Wilson also spent time as a golf professional at nearby Coosaw Creek Country Club in North Charleston, S.C.

As a player, Wilson was the 2001 Santee Amateur champion before becoming a PGA professional in 2001.  In 2010, he was the Low Amateur at the North Charleston Open.

Facilities

The Golf Club at Wescott Plantation

Wescott Golf Club is located in the heart of the lowcountry just minutes from Charleston International Airport, historic plantations and gardens, and beautiful beaches. Course architect Dr. Michael Hurdzan designed this 27-hole course with his trademark environmental sensitivity. Set among centuries old live oaks and built on one of the lowcountries oldest plantations, the design captures the traditional flavor of low flowing earthworks and classic bunkering.
