Team and individual stroke play will take place Friday through Monday, with the top eight squads after 72 holes qualifying for match play. The match play quarterfinals and semifinals are slated for Tuesday and the championship match is scheduled for Wednesday.

“Our goal all season has been to win the national championship and now that we have this opportunity, that’s our total focus,” Georgia coach Chris Haack said. “This is for all the marbles and it’s the most important tournament of the season. Every stroke counts and we’re going to leave it all out there. We’ve had an up-and-down season, but if we can put it all together over the next week, it will be extremely gratifying.”

The Bulldogs, who are seeded 26th and are ranked 28th by Golfweek and 33rd by Golfstat, will tee off on Friday in 10-minute increments between 8:10 and 8:50 a.m. and on Saturday between 1:30 and 2:10 p.m. Georgia will be paired with UNLV and Houston in the first two rounds. Sunday’s pairings will be determined by the 36-hole results.

The Bulldogs will use a lineup of senior Mookie DeMoss, juniors Lee McCoy and Lowndes High graduate Sepp Straka, sophomore Greyson Sigg, and freshman Zach Healy. McCoy leads the Bulldogs with a scoring average of 69.66 and has posted a school-record-tying four victories this season. Sigg (72.63), Healy (72.90), Straka (72.94) and DeMoss (73.31) are separated by less than a stroke.
