Men's Golf: 2014 NCAAs

At 11:30 a.m. CT, the NCAA released the following information.


Due to weather conditions, Round 4 of competition (low 40 individuals and ties) at the 2014 NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championships has been cancelled. Every effort is going to be made for all 156 players to complete 54 holes. After completion of the second-round today, teams 16-30 and high three individuals will begin third round play in a shotgun format approximately 40 minutes after the completion of round two. There is a limited amount of time to complete this half of the round (teams 16-30 and three higher individuals). If play is unable to be completed in that window, all scores in that round will be declared null and void. In such a case, round three will be repaired to include only teams 1-15 and the six low individuals not on those teams (based on non-sudden death tie breaking procedures) to determine the eight teams for match play and the individual champion.

What that means is that the Hokies should be able to begin and complete 54 holes at the NCAA Championships. The ability to finish on Sunday does not look good, but hopefully, all can be completed by sundown on Monday. If not, then any play by teams 16-30 will be wiped out.

The team is in the hotel now, but will head out to Prairie Dunes in the early afternoon to eat lunch and practice/warm-up, waiting for the committee to establish 3rd round tee times. We will update the tee times on @VT_MGolf as soon as we know them, but the staff doesn’t expect to tee off prior to late afternoon.
