Texas A&M is coming off a lackluster finish at the SEC Tournament, where they failed to finish in the Top 8 to advance to the SEC’s matchplay portion. But the Aggies’ No. 19 ranking nationally carried them to a high seed in the Franklin Regional.

But, the Aggies finished in the top six of each tournament for just the third time in program history before the SEC Tournament.

The national championships will be May 20-25 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.
