Men's Golf Heads to Washington for NCAA Regionals
TUCSON, Ariz. – No. 20 Arizona Men's Golf was selected to NCAA Regionals as part of the 14-team field in Cle Elum, Washington as a four seed. The Pac-12 Champion Wildcats will take on four other conference champions and three other Pac-12 programs during the three days of golf at Tumble Creek Golf & Country Club on May 17 to 19.
"This is an exciting announcement for our team as we will stay west for regionals for the first time in a while," said head coach Jim Anderson. "Now our focus is on preparing and building a game plan for this course that we believe in. We will take that game plan and execute it to the best of our ability. If that results in low enough scores to get us to the NCAA Championships then we will have accomplished our goal."
The Wildcats will stay west for regionals following back-to-back trips to Kentucky and Florida in its last two postseasons. Arizona will play its first event in the state of Washington since the 2014 Redhawk Invitational, hosted by Seattle University.
Arizona's NCAA postseason play begins following its sweep of the individual and team titles at the Pac-12 Championships in the Bay Area last week as the Wildcats and senior Brad Reeves claimed championships.
The Cats have won three tournaments with the individual event winners in the same season for the first time since 2004 with wins at the Pac-12 Championships, Arizona Intercollegiate and The Prestige events.
