BRADENTON — The Georgia men’s golf team defeated tournament host South Florida 4-1 on Tuesday morning in the match play quarterfinals of the NCAA Championships at Concession Golf Club.

The Bulldogs advance to the semifinals to take on SEC champion LSU.

Juniors Lee McCoy — who was named a First-Team All-American Tuesday morning — and Sepp Straka (of Lowndes High) and freshman Zach Healy were the first three victors for the Bulldogs. Senior Mookie DeMoss was leading and sophomore Greyson Sigg was trailing when play was halted.

This is the Bulldogs’ third appearance in match play since that format was adopted for the 2009 season and they are now 3-0 in quarterfinal matches. Georgia went 1-1 in 2009 and 2-1 in 2011. The Bulldogs won national championships in 1999 and 2005, both under Coach Chris Haack.

Georgia entered the NCAAs seeded 26th out of 30 teams and ranked 28th and 33rd in the two polls.

Said McCoy, “I’m pretty sure if they had a pre-NCAAs bracket, we would not have been on it. But here we are in the semifinals. We’re having the time of our lives.”
