ASU Karsten Golf Course to Host NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Regional Tournament
ASU Karsten Golf Course will host one of the six regional tournaments on the road to 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championships. Contested May 16-18, the 54-hole regional tournament will feature 14 schools (seeded in order) UCLA, Duke, Georgia , Texas A&M, Clemson, Vanderbilt, University of Central Florida, North Carolina, Arizona State University, Kennesaw State, University of Arizona, Austin Peay State, New Mexico State and Lehigh University. Golfers competing individually in the regional include: Glen Scher, UC Santa Barbara; Rufie Fessler, Fresno State; Cody Blick, San Jose State; Kyle Westmoreland, Air Force and Tyler Torano, Loyola Marymount.
“We’re honored to be hosting this event once again,” said ASU Karsten Golf Course Director of Golf Daryl Crawford. “The course is in championship condition and it should provide a formidable test for this strong field.”
The low five teams and the low individual not on those teams from each regional will advance to the finals, to be conducted May 28-June 2, at The Capital City Club, Crabapple Course in Atlanta, Georgia. Georgia Tech is the host institution for this year’s championships.
The ASU Karsten Golf Course is a 7,002-yard, par-70 classic Pete Dye design reminiscent of a Scottish links course. Since opening in 1989, ASU Karsten has attracted the attention of prominent NCAA golf events and coveted tournaments such as the Phoenix Thunderbirds and PING Invitational. Managed by OB Sports, the ASU Karsten Golf Course is also home to the Arizona State University men’s and women’s NCAA golf teams, both multiple national championship winners.
