Men's Golf Team Vaults Into Fifth Place in N.C.A.A. Tournament

As NCT noted already, the Georgia men's golf team, languishing in 16th place after two rounds, finally began playing like the No. 1 team in the nation on Friday, surging into fifth place in the penultimate round of the N.C.A.A. tournament.

The Bulldogs shot a 269 on the third day, giving them the lowest score of any team in any round of the tourney on an 11-under-par day. Stanford remains in the lead with an 828 tally, trailed by Coastal Carolina (830), Alabama (838), and Charlotte (838), with Georgia (840) checking in at even par, two strokes shy of a third-place tie.

The balls finally started to roll correctly for the Bulldogs!

Sixth-place Georgia Tech (843), eighth-place Florida (848), and 10th-place South Carolina (849) all advanced to the final round, but Tennessee (851), Vanderbilt (855), and Auburn (873) failed to make the cut. The Plainsmen finished in last place in the field of 30 teams, firing a 33-over-par score for the tournament. I hate Auburn.

The Red and Black will tee off roughly at 8:30 tomorrow morning, when they hope to sustain the momentum they built up in the third round.
