Columbus State men's golf team tees off Monday in NCAA regional


The Columbus State men's golf will try to shake off a shaky performance in last month's Peach Belt Conference championships when they tee off Monday in the NCAA South/Southeast Regional in Savannah, Ga.

The Cougars finished in a tie for seventh in the PBC event, which was played at Callaway Gardens' Mountain View Course. Rain washed out the first day and forced the event to just be 18 holes instead of 54.

CSU had a tough round as four of the five players shot 75 or worse, including an 80 and an 82.

That result was surprising considering the Cougars had finished second in each of the two events prior to the PBC.

For the season, CSU has one win, three seconds and three other top 10s. Robert Mize is the leading indivdual player. The former Brookstone standout won the first two events of the season last fall.

The South/Southeast Regional is being played at Savannah Quarters Country Club. The 54-hole event will run through Wednesday.

The top seven teams from the combined regional will advance to the NCAA championships at Allendale, Mich.
