Weather Causes Change in Format at NCAA Championship
Hutchinson, Kan. – The NCAA issued the following media advisory Sunday in regards to the format of the 2014 NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship. Additional specific information about Cal’s third round of play will be determined following the completion of the second round.
NCAA Media AdvisoryDue to weather conditions, Round 4 of competition (low 40 individuals and ties) at the 2014 NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship 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.
