UTC men's golf heading to Bowling Green for regionals

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (UTC) -- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's golf team will travel to Bowling Green, Ky., next week for NCAA Regional play.

The NCAA released each of the six regional fields on Monday night.

UTC earned the Southern Conference automatic bid with a 19-stroke runaway win at last month's league championship.

There are 14 teams and five individuals converging on the Club at Olde Stone. The Mocs are the sixth seed behind UCLA, Arkansas, Texas A&M, Clemson and North Texas.

This is the sixth straight NCAA Regionals appearance for the Mocs. The team advanced to the NCAA Championship from Karsten Creek Golf Course in Stillwater, Okla., in 2009.

"We are really excited to get going," head coach Mark Guhne said. "This is the best time of year. We've been there before and know what to expect. We look forward to the challenge."

UTC is led by three-time SoCon Golfer of the Year Stephan Jaeger. He is the only three-time winner of the award and is currently ranked in the top 15 in the country. Steven Fox, Liam Johnston, Chris Robb and Benni Weilguni round out the squad.

The top five teams and one individual on non-advancing squads from the region move on to the NCAA Championship. The finals are May 29-June 3 at famed Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.

Georgia will stay home to play in the Athens Regional at the UGA Golf Course, where Alabama will also be in the field.

Tennessee will be heading west to play in the Stanford Regional in Palo Alto, Ca.
