BOULDER — As expected, the University of Colorado men’s golf team was invited to the NCAA Championships for the third straight season Monday morning, as the Buffaloes will participate in the Central/Ball State Regional which begins next Thursday, May 14, in Noblesville, Ind.
Colorado, ranked No. 52 in the nation (GolfStat; No. 48 Golfweek) is the No. 9 seed in the field and will be looking to advance to the NCAA Championship Finals for the first time since 2002.
The Buffs are coming off a disappointing 11th place finish in the Pac-12 Championships, with the same exact team that finished fourth in 2014 in what most consider the nation’s toughest golf conference. The Pac-12 received six top three seeds in this year’s tournament, with the Southeastern Conference next with four and then the Atlantic Coast and Big 12 with three each.
“We are excited about being selected, it means that the team has had a really strong year,” CU head coach Roy Edwards said. “I’m especially happy for our players, but first there are final exams this week. That is our top priority and then we’ll be ready to go.
