Emory Golf Earns Bid To NCAA D-III Championships

Emory Golf Earns Bid To NCAA D-III Championships

2019 NCAA D-III Men's Golf Championships Release

The No. 1-ranked Emory University golf team has been selected to compete in the 2019 NCAA Division III Golf Championships.  The Eagles are one of 42 squads vying for the team title that will be played May  May 14-17 at Keene Trace Golf Club, in Nicholasville, Kentucky, and hosted by Transylvania University.

The team and individual champions will be determined after 72 holes of play or the conclusion of the last fully completed round. Forty-two teams and six individuals not on one of those teams will be selected to participate in the championships. After 36 holes of competition, the field will be cut to the top 18 teams and top six individuals not on one of those teams.

Emory received one of three Pool B bids, consisting of independent institutions, and institutions that are members of conferences that do not meet the requirements for automatic qualification. The other two Pool B bids were doled out to Carnegie Mellon University and Southwestern University (Tex.). A total of 32 conferences were awarded automatic nods while seven berths were reserved for Pool C - schools from automatic qualifying conferences that are not conference champs and any remaining Pool B teams.  In addition, six individuals from non-qualifying teams were chosen to participate bringing the field to 216 players.

The teams will split the first two days by playing the 7,190-yard, par-72 Champion Trace Course and the 6,897-yard, par-72 Keene Run Course. After the 36-hole cut, the final two rounds will be held at Champion Trace.

Emory will be making its 22nd appearance at nationals in the 34-year history of the program and the sixth during the eight-year tenure of head coach John Sjoberg.  

All of the top 17 and 19 of the 25 top-ranked teams that comprised the most recent Bushnell Golfweek Top 25 Coaches Poll will be in the hunt for this year's national crown.  No. 5-ranked Methodist College enters this year's competition as the defending champion.

The Eagles concluded last year's Championships in seventh place.
