Big 12 gets 7 teams in men's golf NCAA Tournament

Big 12 gets 7 teams in men's golf NCAA Tournament

A pair of clutch birdie putts by freshman Brandon Mancheno and junior Trace Crowe proved to be the difference as the No. 7 Auburn men's golf team advanced to the NCAA Championship following the final round of the NCAA Norman Regional Wednesday. The England native concludes his career with a final year that included his first two wins as a Seminole, enjoying a remarkable turn-around in five years' time to become an All-American. The Cats tied with the Cowboys and No. 13 Texas Tech for the best score on Wednesday.

After three long days at the NCAA Bryan Regional, freshman Hunter Eichhorn and sophomore Matt Murlick did not make the cut.

Sophomore Viktor Hovland fired the squad's low round of the day, posting a 69 to move into a tie for seventh place at 212. The event was shortened from 54 to 36 holes because of thunderstorms Tuesday.

This is the third consecutive year Kansas has made it to a regional after an eight-year drought. He won by three shots over Augusta's Broc Everett, who shot 67-66-66 to post a 14-under-par 199 total. The Jayhawks were in third place, one stroke off the pace, entering the final round.

Next up, the Aggies venture to Stillwater, Okla., for the 2018 NCAA Championships. They all tied for fifth place in regulation at 9-under-par 204. It was the same scenario as previous year (at the Stanford Regional) when we were in it for five hours and four minutes and lost it on the last hole, and we lost it on the last hole again. In another oddity, the host school Ohio State is not even playing this week, as they did not qualify for the postseason. "It really only has two results, two outcomes, and we got the good one", head coach Mike McGraw said. It wasn't pristine, but the third-seeded Red Raiders advance by firing an 18-over 870 for the fifth and final spot into NCAAs from this site. IL (even-par 852), UNLV (15-over-par 867), Northwestern (16-over-par 868) and Texas Tech (18-over-par 870) completed the top five as those teams will now move on to the national championships, May 25-30.

Schlottman also carded an even-par 72 in his final tour of the course.
