Men's Golf Looks to Advance to Championship Round

We don't normally pay attention to golf around here, but with all of the hubbub recently with the softball team's trip to the Women's College World Series and the baseball team's forthcoming Regional, I thought I'd take the time to point out how well the Alabama men's golf team is doing at this week's National Championship. 

 

For those of you unfamiliar with the format the golf championship takes, here's a primer.  The first three days (Tuesday, Wednesday, and today) comprise a three round, stroke play tournament.  Each team fields five golfers, the worst score for each round is dropped and the rest of the scores are totaled.  After today, the top 8 teams will advance to a match play tournament, to be played over the weekend.

 

Currently, Alabama stands 5th at +4, seven shots behind leader Georgia Tech.  More importantly, the Tide are ten shots ahead of the 8th place team, meaning that, barring an epic collapse, we should make the final round of 8.  Additionally, three Bama golfers have a reasonable chance at the individual title.  LSU's John Peterson is currently the leader 5-under par, but Bud Cauley is four shots back, Cory Whitsett is five back, and Hunter Hamrick is six back.

 

The Alabama golfers tee off around noon today, and you can follow the team leaderboard here and the individual leaderboard here.
