NCAA Tallahassee Regional Begins Monday for Men’s Golf

Baton Rouge, La. – The LSU men’s golf team has made the trip to the Tallahassee, Florida, and will begin play on Monday at one of six regionals around the country with plans of advancing to the NCAA Championship. The NCAA Tallahassee Regional will be hosted at the Seminole Legacy Golf Club.

Live Scoring

LSU is the No. 4 seed in the regional that includes 14 teams. In order for LSU to advance, the Tigers will need to finish in the top five of the event. The tournament will be a 54 hole, stroke play tournament that is slated to have 18 holes played Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The course will play as a par 72 at 7,505 yards.

The Tigers are grouped with the No. 2 overall seed in the whole tournament, the host Florida State. No. 11 Georgia, No. 16 Liberty, Georgia Tech, Georgia Southern, TCU, Indiana, Kansas, USC, Ohio State, Davidson, Florida A&M, and Long Island University will round out the field of 14 teams.

LSU’s starting lineup at the regional will feature Garrett Barber, Nicholas Arcement, Drew Doyle, Connor Gaunt, and Chris Woollam. None of the five have ever played at an NCAA Regional, but they are more than capable of playing solid golf and advancing on in the tournament.
