Bradley Named South Carolina Men’s Golf Head Coach – University of South Carolina Athletics

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Rob Bradley, who led Purdue University’s men’s golf program to nine NCAA Regionals and four NCAA Championship appearances in 11 seasons from 2013-24, has been named men’s golf coach at the University of South Carolina, Athletics Director Ray Tanner announced today.

Bradley comes to South Carolina on the heels of leading the Boilermakers this season to a third-place finish at the Big Ten Championship and a second-place finish in the NCAA West Lafayette Regional that punched the program’s ticket to the NCAA Championship for the 30th time in school history. The Boilermakers won two tournaments and finished in the top three in eight of 12 events during the 2023-24 season.

“After visiting with Rob Bradley, it became clear that he has the passion, vision and positive outlook to lead our men’s golf program,” said Tanner.  “His success as someone who can build a program and develop young men is well-documented.  I am excited about the future of our men’s golf program under Rob’s direction.”

Under Bradley’s tutelage, Purdue has posted nine of the 10 best team stroke averages in school history, including this past season’s average of 287.57, which was second best in school history.  The Boilermakers had the second most appearances in the NCAA Championship from the Big Ten the last 11 seasons, trailing only Illinois.

Bradley had 14 different players earn a total of 18 All-Big Ten honors in his time in West Lafyette. He coached a pair of All-Americans, the first at Purdue in men’s golf since 2004. Herman Sekne, a two-time All-American and two-time First Team All-Big Ten selection, became just the second Big Ten Player of the Year in program history this past season.

At Purdue, Bradley has had numerous golfers enter the professional ranks.  This season is Adam Schenk’s fourth competing in the FedEx Cup.  He finished tied for fifth in the Valero Texas Open and tied for 12th in his debut at The Masters this season.  Last season, Schenk finished 24th in the FedEx Cup and made the second stage of the playoffs for the first time in his career. He has played in 202 PGA TOUR events with 121 cuts made, 17 top-10s, seven top-fives and a pair of runner-up finishes. Schenk is currently ranked No. 51 in the latest Official World Golf Rankings.
