Wilson ready for 6th Rice Planters Tournament

June 20, 2018 - Jamie Wilson said, "i'm just going to go play golf. I'm going to try to hit the ground running, and play it as I do any other day of the year."

The USC junior golfer is very familiar with this week's golf course. It's pretty much a home field with friends and family coming out, but that can add a little pressure.

Wilson said, "I usually have a decent amount of people come out especially on the last day, so it's always motivating, and it gives it an extra little bit of pressure, but it's also a lot of fun."
Plus he knows half the field and has four teammates competing, so of course there's some friendly banter.

Wilson said, "I mean we talk a little smack back and forth here and there about who's going to win, but it's just friendly."

With the hot weather we've been having I wonder how the course is heading into the week of play?

Wilson said, "the course is in great shape, and the guys have set it up really well for us, and I had some good practices, so it looks like it's going to be a good week."

And the players dealing with this heat? They know how to handle it.

Wilson said, "stay cool, drink a lot of water, and keep my hands dry I guess that's going to be the key."
