I didn't even comb my hair today because I knew it was going to be a dog fight.

Good for the boys. It was going to be tough to make it through this regional, so it will be great for recruiting. Nick is playing some great golf. It's really nice seeing the team put some low numbers out there. Tripp and Rueben are the x-factors for this team and when they play well they can compete.
My wife and I got a chance to play with Nick during the ASU Thunderbird Invite "Pro"-Am last year. It was a completely random pairing and he was pumped when he saw my big Cy mascot head cover!(too bad they don't make them anymore) We talked a lot about ISU, his love for this fanbase and how much the new facility has helped the players and recruiting. Great young man with a bright future!
Voke with 1 of those 3 birdies needed for a 59.
So anyone know how the team and individual NCAA's work moving forward? Looks like there will be 30 total teams?
Top 5 teams from each regional move on.
The low individual not on one of those teams also advances.
Gavin Hall from UT is a bit streaky. A double, a triple bogey, and an eagle.
Late to the party here. Wow, -21 and Voke at -10 thru 16.
Pretty amazing round today. Representing the north well
Been following all tourney, the team is hot at the right time and Voke is straight out fire...
Voke pars 17, so 59 is probably out, but we will settle for a 60 lol
Ole Miss on a tear, only 8 back from ISU now. I can't stop refreshing...
Wow, nice third round Cyclones!
61, 66, 68, 68 263
Right but how many players per team play in the finals? How many total rounds? Is there a round of cuts, etc?
30 teams (5 players each) and 6 individuals play 54 holes. Team scores are a total of the best 4, per round.
Top 15 teams plus 9 best individuals not on a top-15 team advance, and play the final 18. This will determine the individual national champion, and the 8 teams that advance to match play.
Match play will be a single-elimination bracket, seeded 1-8 based on stroke play finish. Each team match will be 18 holes, worth a total of 5 points (1 per individual matchup).
263 is bananas. I do wish people would realize how hard it is for a team this far north to compete. Look at this regional ,for instance. Pretty incredible what we are doing.
Thanks for the explanation. I'm guessing it would be a huge upset if ISU actually makes the top 15. But maybe Voke can make the individuals?
That's quite the challenge to be a top 8 team through 54 holes, then go through and win the match play event for NC.
National ranking of 30 advancing teams:
1. USC, 2. Vanderbilt, 3. Oklahoma State, 4. Stanford
6. LSU, 7. Oregon, 8. Illinois, 9. Baylor
12. Kent State, 14. Clemson, 15. Oklahoma, 16. Texas
17. UNLV, 18. Virginia, 19. Duke, 20. Auburn
22. Ole Miss, 24. Florida State, 26. Arizona State, 27. Pepperdine
33. North Carolina, 35. Lipscomb, 36. Alabama, 38. Purdue
39. Kennesaw State, 42. Jacksonville, 44. New Mexico, 47. UCF
49. Penn State, 50. Iowa State
So cool and Congrats to this Clutch and Special team and STAFF!!
Not a lot of midwest on that list.
2, maaaybe 3, "northern" schools and one is in the Northwest. Again, we are greatly disadvantaged by geography and still have done this well.
