Coastal paired with Texas Tech, Ball State at NCAAs

The Coastal Carolina men’s golf team will be paired with Texas Tech and Ball State and the teams will begin play at the 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Championship at 8:40 am off the first tee Tuesday at the Capital City Club Crabapple Course in Milton, Ga.

The teams will start the second round on the 10th tee and start at 2 pm. Third round tee times will be determined based on team results through 36 holes. The top eight teams after 54 holes will advance to the match-play portion of the Championship.

Coastal Carolina, the 2013 Big South Champion and fifth-place finisher at the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional, will be making its fourth team appearance at the NCAA Championship, also qualifying for the final in 2005, ’06 and ’07.

While this is the team’s first appearance since 2007, CCU senior Sebastian Soderberg placed second in the 2011 NCAA East-Virginia Tech Regional to advance to the NCAA Championship as an individual. Filling out Coastal’s lineup will be junior Roberto Ballesteros and sophomores Andrew Dorn, Ben Wheeler and Peter Valasek.

California is the top seed for the championship, followed by 2012 NCAA championship runner-up Alabama, UCLA, 2013 national champion Texas, Washington, New Mexico, Georgia Tech, Arkansas, TCU and Florida to round out the top 10.

Seeds 11 through 20 are Southern California, Georgia, Florida State, North Florida, Illinois, Oklahoma State, LSU, Auburn, South Carolina and Texas A&M.

Seeds 21 through 30 – Saint Mary’s, Kent State, Oklahoma, UNLV, UCF, Tennessee, Arizona State, Texas Tech, Coastal Carolina and Ball State.

The 75th edition of the national championship takes place over six days, beginning May 28 when the 30 teams battle in 54 holes of stroke play, 18 holes each day over three days, followed by three days of match play competition culminating in the national championship match Sunday, June 2.

The format for stroke play is each team fields five players, with the low four scores each day counting toward the team score. After 54 holes on Thursday, May 30, the individual national champion will be crowned, and the top eight schools in terms of team score are seeded for match play competition beginning Thursday, May 31.

In team match play, each of the five players on a team plays a match against a counterpart on the opposing team. Each individual match is worth a point for his team, and the team with the most points after the five matches are completed advances to the next round. Quarterfinal matches are set for Friday, May 31, with semifinals on Saturday, June 1, and the championship match Sunday, June 2.

The NCAA.com will offer live web streaming of the championship beginning on the final day of stroke play Thursday, May 30, and during each day of match play.
