UW Golf Remains In National Championship Hunt
Despite feeling like they didn't perform up to "par" during the first three rounds of the NCAA golf championships at Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio, the Washington men's golf team finished the individual portion of the tournament tied for third place overall and right in the thick of things in the NCAA title hunt.
The Huskies will most likely play Arkansas, which also tied for third-place - along with USC - in the NCAA quarterfinals of the new match play format. Essentially, 30 teams qualified for the national championships. The top eight after the first three rounds of medialist play advanced to match play. Now, the teams will play each other head-to-head with the top seed (Oklahoma State) playing the eight seed (either Texas A&M or top-ranked Georgia). Two will play seven. Three versus six and the four seed will play the fifth seed.
The reason we say "most likely" regarding the Huskies' matchup against Arkansas is because of the fact that - due to the weather delay on Wednesday - several teams are still on the course and tournament officials have not yet announced tie-breakers.
So, we expect Washington to tee-off its quarterfinal match around 4 a.m. (Pacific) on Friday. The semifinals are scheduled for 11 a.m. on Friday, while the championship match is scheduled for a 7 a.m. start on Saturday.
