The Brescia University Men’s Golf Team teed off today at 7:30 am at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois for the NAIA National Championship Tournament. The tournament will take place over the course of four days, with the final round concluding on Friday, May 27th.
In a field of 156 golfers, each team competes with five golfers and the top four scores posted each day count toward the team standings. The tournament field is cut after 54 holes and reduced to 17 teams and 40 individuals (including ties). Pairings and start times are established by the tournament director in consultation with members of the event’s tournament committee and the NAIA Championship Manager. The field will be re-grouped and divided into four groups for the third and final round. Golfers will be grouped according to the standing of their team and individual scores.
The team took home first place in the 2016 KIAC Men’s Conference Golf Tournament with a final-round team score of 306 on Saturday, April 16th, winning the title by four strokes over Point Park University. This qualified them for the national tournament.
Students on the team are as follows:
Alex Knight, senior, Henderson, Kentucky
