If we are going to win another National Championship this year it is going to be in Men's Golf. We made it through the stroke play and then today we knocked off #6 New Mexico 4-1. Thomas (4&3), Whitsett (5&4), and Wyatt (2&1) all won as did Strohmeyer (4&3).
Tomorrow we are in the semi finals against Ga Tech. Tech has a little advantage as they are actually the host school for this event being played in Atlanta. However, Bama is a formidable team with 3 guys (Thomas, Whitsett and Wyatt) who are among the elite in the NCAA and all 3 have a lot of experience in NCAA match play as does Strohmeyer.
Of course anything can happen but both Texas (defending champ) and Cal (ranked #1) fell today. If Bama can get by Ga Tech I like our prospects in the finals on Sunday. Furthermore, Tech may be at home and they have played to the course a lot, but we have played this course before too (although we played poorly here last Sept.) I like our chances.
