VARIOUS LOCATIONS ACROSS THE U.S. (May 18, 2016) -- The NCAA Regionals concluded today, and the top five teams from each location have been determined.

As well, the highest finishing individual not on a qualifying team from each location will advance to the National Championship from May 27- June 1 at the gorgeous Eugene Country Club in Oregon.

Results follow:


Course: Championship Course at the University of New Mexico - 7555 yards
Host School: University of New Mexico

Jon Rahm paced Arizona State to a top seed position at 4-under. Rahm was the only player to post an under-par total on the University of New Mexico Championship Course. But Rahm wasn't the story of the day, not even close.

The playoff for the last team spot, in which all five players from the two fifth-place tying teams (San Diego State and Texas A&M) have to play a nerve wracking hole (or more) to see who advances. San Diego State's No. 5 player (remember the 2014 U.S. Amateur Champ?) stepped up and holed his second shot for an albatross, that rare bird so seldom seen on the golf course. It was a 7-iron from 202 yards.

“Best golf shot I’ve seen in my coaching career,” Ryan Donovan, San Diego State’s head coach told Golfweek.

A few minutes later, Ryann Ree made eagle for the Aztecs -- he and Yang combined for 5-under alone.

San Diego State's 5-under score on the 544-yard par 5 pushed them past Texas A&M (they posted a respectable 2- under) and on to Eugene Country Club.

Playing off for the individual spot, Cameron Champ of Texas A&M advanced over Peter Kim of Army on the second playoff hole (the ninth) with an eagle to Kim's par. (Both players birdied the first playoff hole.) Birdie-eagle...that will usually do it!

Course: Vanderbilt Legends Club - 7190 yards
Host School: Vanderbilt University

Texas, paced by Doug Ghim (14-under) proved why they are the top ranked Division I team in the nation, as they won the Franklin, TN Regional by 11- shots over host Vanderbilt. And as well as Ghim played, he was edged for medalist honors by 2-shots by Houston's top player, Michael Perras. Perras posted two bogey-free rounds of 65 and 66 plus a 69 in the second round. Individual kudos to Ryan Cole of James Madison -- playing as an individual -- for matching Ghim's score of 14-under.

Course: Karsten Creek Golf Club
Host School: Oklahoma State University

Oklahoma State player Kristoffer Ventura (from Norway) took individual medalist honors, pacing his team to a top seed as they won their qualifier by 19 shots over Oklahoma. Just a week ago, Ventura posted an amazing 9-under 62 on the 6800 yard Wichita Country Club during US Open Local Qualifying, easily earning medalist honors. His score was just one off the course record held by former PGA Tour player (and, it should be noted, Oklahoma State grad) Grier Jones. Only one player bettered 70 over three rounds at the difficult Karsten Creek, Stratten Nolen of Oklahoma State in the first round.

Georgia posted 18-under to take top seed, over South Carolina by 6 shots. Matthew NeSmith paced the Gamecocks with an 8-under score of 208.
