TCU Set for NCAA Regional Play
May 14, 2014
FORT WORTH, Texas - The TCU men's golf team will make its 25th-straight appearance in postseason play at the 2014 NCAA Regional Championships on Thursday through Saturday at Briggs Ranch Golf Club in San Antonio, Texas.
The NCAA San Antonio Regional is one of six qualifying events for this year's NCAA Championships, which will be played May 23 through May 28 at Prairie Dunes Golf Course in Hutchinson, Kan. Only the top-five teams from each regional will advance to the national tournament, along with the top individual finisher from each site not playing for a qualifying team.
Briggs Ranch will play to a par of 72 over 7,206 yards during this week's tournament and has been ranked as Golfweek's best residential course in Texas and sixth in the U.S.
The Horned Frogs enter play as the tournament's No. 9 seed in the lone regional to feature four top-20 programs. Joining TCU in the San Antonio Regional listed in order by seed are No. 6 Georgia, No. 7 UCF, No. 18 UCLA, No. 19 Vanderbilt, No. 30 USF, No. 31 SMU, No. 42 Georgia Southern, No. 43 Georgia State, Northwestern, College of Charleston, VCU and Columbia.
TCU competed in 11 tournaments during the 2013-14 season with seven top-10 finishes, including five top-five showings. The Frogs rounded out the regular season with a fifth-place finish at the Big 12 Championship that saw them top No. 13 Oklahoma and No. 27 Baylor.
With its 25 straight appearances in NCAA Regional play under head coach Bill Montigel, TCU joins only Clemson and UNLV as the only programs to achieve the feat under the same head coach. The streak also ranks as the longest postseason run in TCU history for all sports.
