CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – For the 14th consecutive time the Virginia men’s golf team has received a bid to the NCAA Regional Championships. The Cavaliers were awarded the number No. 10 seed among 14 teams at the regional championship site at the Yale Golf Course in New Haven, Conn.
A total of 81 teams are competing at six regional sites May 16-18 with the top five teams and top individual (not qualifying with a team) advancing to the NCAA Championships set for May 27-June 1 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.
“I’m excited about going to Yale. I know the golf course very well having played there and having coached there at several regionals,” said Virginia head coach Bowen Sargent. “The last time we played a regional there we got through by a shot or two. It should be a good site for us. Chris Fosdick is from there and Jimmie Massie has played there before. I feel like we have a lot of experience with the golf course and will be in a position where we can advance.”
