Men's golf receives No. 3 seed in Austin Regional

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech received an invitation to its eighth-straight NCAA regional Monday, which will take place at The University of Texas Golf Club in Austin on May 14-16. The Red Raiders will be looking for their fourth trip to the NCAA Championships under ninth-year head coach Greg Sands.

"I was pulling to go to Austin," Sands said. "We have a lot of experience there having played in the last two Morris Williams events there. Several of our players played there as juniors, so round for round we probably have as much experience as anyone on the course, except UT. It's good to know the course and that should be valuable. We haven't been playing well lately, but I've seen glimpses from everyobdy and we're about to breakthrough."

The University of Texas Golf Club is a 7,412-yard, par 71 layout and will host 13 teams, including (1) Stanford, (2) Florida, (3) Texas Tech, (4) Texas, (5) UNLV, (6) California, (7) Lamar, (8) Michigan, (9) Texas-Arlington, (10) Virginia Tech, (11) Mississippi State, (12) New Mexico State and (13) Jackson State. Additionally, ten individuals from programs whose teams were selected to a regional will participate.

Six 54-hole regional competitions will be conducted to determine the 30 qualifying teams and six individuals not on those qualifying teams who will advance to the finals. Thirteen teams and 10 individuals not on those teams will compete at each of three regionals, while the other three regionals will have fourteen teams and five individuals not on those teams. The low five teams and low individual not on those teams at each regional will advance to the NCAA Championships.
