CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard men's golf team has been selected to compete in the NCAA Men's Golf Regional Championship in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The Crimson will compete as the No. 12 seed in the region, set to take place from May 16-18 at the Ol' Colony Golf Complex.
Harvard earned the Ivy League's automatic bid to the NCAA Regionals after winning the Ivy League championship, the program's first in 41 years. The Crimson took an early nine-stroke lead to start the tournament and was able to fend off a late Dartmouth push to secure the victory with a four-stroke advantage.
A total of six 54-hole regional tournaments will be held across the country May 16-18. Thirteen teams and 10 individuals will compete at each of three regionals, while the other three regionals will include 14 teams and five individuals. The low five teams, as well as the low individual not on those teams, will advance to the NCAA Men's Golf Championships, to be held May 27-June 1 at Eugene Country Club in Eugene, Oregon.
Golf Channel will feature scores, highlights and interviews from the regional championships, airing within Golf Central and Morning Drive. Golf Channel Digital will also provide up-to-date scoring and news coverage of the regional championships.
