ASU Finalizes Preparations

ASU Finalizes Preparations

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The Augusta State men's golf team arrived in San Diego, Calif., Tuesday morning and began their on-site preparations for the NCAA Regionals, which tee off Thursday morning at Carlton Oaks Golf Course.

The fifth-ranked Jaguars are making their 12th NCAA regional appearance in the last 13 years, and 15th overall. ASU will be the No. 3 seed in the three-day, 54-hole regional, which begins Thursday, May 20 and runs through Saturday, May 22. San Diego State University is serving as the tournament host.

Redesigned by Pete Dye in 1989, Carlton Oaks Golf Course (www.carltonoaksgolf.com) originally opened in 1958 and is located just 20 minutes from downtown San Diego. The 7,360-yard, par-72 layout plays to a course rating of 75.2 and a slope rating of 146.

ASU will be looking to advance to the NCAA Championships for the 11th time in 15 NCAA Regional appearances.

Sophomore Taylor Floyd will lead off at 11:00 a.m., EST for the Jags, who will be paired with No. 1 seed Oregon and No. 2 seed UNLV. The Ducks are ranked No. 1 in the nation in the latest Golfweek magazine rankings, while the Rebels are ranked No. 16.

Junior Carter Newman will follow Floyd out on the course at 11:10 a.m., followed by junior Mitch Krywulycz at 11:20 and sophomore Patrick Reed at 11:30. Junior Henrik Norlander will anchor the ASU lineup at 11:40.

Live scoring of the regional will be available at www.aug.edu/athletics and www.golfstat.com.

The NCAA's modified format for the postseason features six regionals around the nation. Thirteen teams and 10 individuals not on those teams will compete at each of three regionals while the other three regionals will have 14 teams and five individuals not on those teams.

The top five teams from each of the six regionals (54 holes each) and the low individual not a member of those teams will advance to the NCAA Championships on June 1-6 at The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tenn., near Chattanooga. (View Regional Notes)
