Here is the place for the lowdown on tennis, golf and other sport on campus. And if you consider band, debate or quiz bowl a sport, you have found your home. It is also the place to discuss schoolwide athletics.

#529974 A mild upset, as we were the #1 seed. The guys actually played well. Their -19 would have won most years, but they ran into a buzz saw in a red hot Campbell team and their top guy Svensson, who shot -14 to win individual honors and break Dustin Johnson's tournament record by 2 strokes.

#529978 Is our golf team in line for an at-large this year? I know we were ranked earlier in the season but I haven't followed them.

#529979 I believe I saw that they were #45 heading into the tournament. So they should be considered for an at large, maybe on the bubble.
Edit: Oldflame is correct - ranked 48th.

They were ranked 48 going into the conference tournament. I'd say we are on the bubble.

#529988 Oy...

That said, it's less that we underperformed and more that Campbell just had a really REALLY good three rounds and absolutely blitzed the course. Most years the score we put up probably wins the tournament...and easily so to boot

Last year a total of 81 teams made the regionals. If the field is that big again this year I think our chances should be pretty good.


I like our chances. In evaluating us as an at-large, our performance in the BSC tourney will actually weigh in our favor. That -19 would have won us the tourney and an auto-bid most years. Svenssen and his Campbell teammates were just on fire for 2 days this year to take it from us.

#530010 Campbell's top two scorers shot -22 by themselves so even if their other three had shot even they would have still won by three strokes

#530366 The top five teams of the 14 competing at the University of Texas Golf Club from May 15th-17th advance to Nationals up in Chicago. I am tied up on the 15th & 16th but may make a run to Austin for the final round if LU & UT are in the hunt. I haven't been to the UT track but here is is incredible.

#530367 KK and the folks in Charlotte have to be smiling like Cheshire cats over this. If Liberty had won the BSC, I highly doubt Campbell would have gotten an at large. Also, our being seeded 8 out of 14 would seem to indicate we were not so much on the bubble as a lock. Our golf program has gained a ton of respect nationally.

#531027 We were 10th after Day 1 in Austin and only the Top 5 go to Nationals. UT, Ole Miss & Okie State all look firmly entrenched atop the leaderboard. The final two spots are wide open for whoever plays well today and tomorrow.
