SAN ANTONIO, Tex -- Birdies by senior Anton Arboleda and sophomore Lorens Chan at the 54th hole propelled the third-seeded UCLA men’s golf team to its 12th consecutive NCAA Championship berth Saturday in the NCAA San Antonio Regional at Briggs Ranch Golf Club.

The dual birdies gave the Bruins sole possession of fifth place by two shots and enabled them to survive the cut at 869 (+5). UCLA was tied with TCU on the final hole before Arboleda and Chan made their clutch putts.
