Golfers Receive No.2 Seed in West for Regional Championship

May 5, 2008

Third-ranked UCLA will travel to Bremerton, Wash. to compete in the NCAA West Regional Championship at Gold Mountain Golf Club, May 15-17.

The Bruins received the No.2 seed in the West Region and will begin play on May 15 with top-seeded USC and No. 3 seed Florida State. Overall, eight Pac-10 schools are among the 27 teams in the West Regional. Following 54 holes of stroke play at the three regional sites, the top 10 teams, plus the top three individuals not affiliated with those teams will advance to the NCAA Championship, May 28-31 at Purdue.

Head Coach Derek Freeman said the Bruins were happy with their site selecton in the regional.

"Our team has played Gold Mountain," he said. "It's long, it's difficult and the greens are good. The question mark, as always, is the weather. At this point, all the teams competing are quality teams so we'll have to be on top of our game to contend for the title."

In the previous five years of the regional tournament, the Bruins have finished no worse than seventh with victories in 2003 and '04. This season marks the 15th time in 16 years that UCLA has remained in the West Region. In 2006, they finished seventh in the East Regional and Kevin Chappell, then a sophomore, won the tournament.

This season, the Bruins have won four tournaments, including the Collegiate Match Play championship. They also have recorded three runner-up finishes.
