Golf Team Seeded No. 14 in NCAA Championship

May 25, 2010

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech’s golf team has been made the No. 14 seed for next week’s NCAA Men’s Division I Championship, June 1-6, at The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tenn., and will be paired with No. 13 Florida and No. 15 UNLV for the first two rounds Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Atlantic Coast Conference champion Yellow Jackets finished third in last week’s NCAA Southeast Regional, making the Finals field for the 24th time since 1985. Tech will begin its first round off the No. 10 tee at 1:47 p.m. next Tuesday (June 1), and the second round from the first tee at 8:44 a.m. Wednesday. The Thursday final round pairings and tee times will be determined by 36-hole scores.

The format for the event is 54 holes of stroke play Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (June 1-3) to crown an individual champion and provide a cut to eight teams. Those eight, seeded by their finish in the medal format, will play single-elimination match play Friday, Saturday and Sunday (June 4-6) to determine the national champion.

The Honors Course, a 7,395-yard, par 72 layout, has held the NCAA Championship once before, in 1996 when Arizona State captured the title.
