Men's golf team bound for NCAA Championships

On a week in which they hardly blistered the University of New Mexico Championship Course, the Bulls men's golf team didn't butcher it either.

As a result, they're headed to the NCAA Championships for the second year in a row.

The Bulls finished the 54-hole NCAA Albuquerque Regional with a 35-over-par team score, good enough for fourth place. The top five teams move on to the championship round, set for May 27-June 1 in Eugene, Ore.

Final regional results can be found here. Arizona State (12-over) won the event, with Sun Devils senior Jon Rahm (1-under) finishing as individual medalist. Sophomore Claudio Correa (4-over) finished in a tie for fifth to lead USF. On Wednesday, he was the only Bull to eclipse par, firing a 2-under 70 on the 7,555-yard course.

USF now will try to improve on last year's historic NCAA Championships run, when it reached the match-play quarterfinals for the first time.
