Georgia Golfers Qualify For NCAA Championship

May 20, 2006

ORLANDO, Fla. --- The Georgia men's golf team qualified for the NCAA Championship by finishing second on Saturday at the NCAA East Regional being played at Lake Nona Golf and Country Club.

Needing a top-10 finish to advance to the NCAAs, the Bulldogs made it comfortably by shooting a 1-under 287 in the final round to wind up at 1-over 865. Wake Forest won the East Regional with a score of even-par 864, including a 5-under 283 effort on Saturday.

"We are certainly excited about returning to the NCAAs," said Georgia coach Chris Haack, whose team is the defending national champion. "Like all teams, it's been our goal all season. Our guys are playing with a lot of confidence right now, so we're looking forward to going after another one."

Junior Brendon Todd finished fifth to lead the Bulldogs at 3-under 213, including a final-round even-par 72. Todd wound up two shots behind medalist Kevin Chappell of UCLA (211).

Freshman Brian Harman finished 11th at 1-over 217 as he closed with a 1-over 73. Senior Kevin Kisner came in 14th at 2-over 218 after he fired an even-par 72. Senior Richard Scott (2-under 70) and junior Chris Kirk (2-over 74) each placed 26th at 5-over 221.

Georgia will be making its ninth straight appearance at the NCAAs under Haack. His 1999 and 2005 squads won the national championship.
