ATHENS, Ga. --- The Georgia men's golf team will have its final tuneup before the SEC Championship on Saturday in the Capital City Club College Match Play Championship.
The event, which will be held on the Crabapple Course at Capital City Club, will feature the Bulldogs along with host Georgia Tech, Auburn and Florida State.
The one-day event features the four teams playing each other at match play with semifinal matches beginning at 7:30 a.m., followed by the consolation and championship matches at 1:30 p.m. The matches are structured similar to those at the NCAA Championship, with each team's No. 5 player facing each other, followed by their No. 4 players and so on. Scoring will also be the same, with each individual match counting one point toward the team score.
A trophy will be presented to the team champion following the championship match, and each match in the event will count toward the teams' head-to-head records for NCAA championship qualification. Admission for the event is free.
Using the Golfstat rankings, No. 6 Georgia will open against No. 19 Florida State and No. 5 Georgia Tech will take on No. 26 Auburn.
The Bulldogs will use a lineup of seniors Michael Cromie, Joey Garber and Keith Mitchell, junior Nicholas Reach, sophomore Lee McCoy and freshman Greyson Sigg. Five of those six players will make up the lineup for the SEC Championship next Friday through Sunday on St. Simons Island.
