UGA Wins NCAA Men’s Golf Regional

Local knowledge. An oft-used phrase on the golf course. Sometimes used when a golfer plays a shot using the terrain to their advantage (hills, slopes, firm or soft turf, etc.). But usually in the context of someone getting a lucky bounce or roll of the golf ball, and meant as a joke.

The University of Georgia Men’s Golf Team used their local knowledge to capture the 2019 Athens Regional title Wednesday, and will now advance to the NCAA Championships May 24-29. Twenty-nine other teams will join UGA in Fayetteville, AR at The Blessings Golf Club.

The Bulldogs, sleeping in their own beds and knowing every inch of the UGA Course, established an early lead after Monday’s first round.
