Monday May 6, 2013Men's Golf to Participate in NCAA South Regional
The University of Florida men's golf team will head to the University Club in Baton Rouge, La. for the 2013 NCAA South Regionals, the NCAA announced tonight. Play will begin Thursday, May 16 and run through Saturday, May 18.
Florida has advanced to the regionals competition every year since its inception in 1989. The team has captured five regional titles and most recently won in 2011. From there, the team has gone on and participated in the NCAA Championships every year but one. Currently, the Gators have qualified for the NCAA Championships in each of the past 12 seasons, the longest current streak in the nation.
Last season, the team finished in second place at the East Regional in Greensboro, N.C. J.D. Tomlinson (Gainesville, Fla.) was the Gators' lowest scorer for the tournament. He finished in 216 strokes (E) and tied for fifth place.
Six regionals will be played that weekend with 13 teams at each location. The top five finishers at each site will earn invitations to the 2013 NCAA Championships, which will be played at Capital City Club in Woodstock, Ga.
