Texas Tech Golf Drops Spot at New Haven Regional

The Red Raiders remain in the top five after the second round and in position to advance to the NCAA Championship

The Texas Tech men’s golf team dropped into fifth place after the second round of NCAA Regional action at Yale’s New Haven Course on Tuesday.

The Red Raiders are playing in their 20th straight NCAA men’s regional golf tournament.

Tech won the 2021 Albuquerque Regional and has advanced to 13 NCAA Championships, including last season where the team finished 11th.

The low five teams and the low individual not on those five qualifying teams will advance to the NCAA Championships on May 27 - June 1 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The Red Raiders put together a 1-under-par 279 to stay in position, despite dropping a spot.

Wake Forest leads at 21-under, while North Carolina moved up three spots to 20-under. North Florida stayed in third place, but Georgia Southern joined them. The Red Raiders are two shots behind North Florida and Georgia Southern with one round remaining.

More importantly, the Red Raiders have a five-shot lead on Illinois, the closest team to Tech’s position. If the Red Raiders drop even one spot, they won’t advance.

Ludvig Aberg, who won the Big 12’s individual title a few weeks ago, dropped back into a tie for sixth with a second-round 71 after he was tied for second after the first round.

The Red Raiders were consistent in the second round. Baard Skogen and Carl Didrik Meen Fosaas each shot a 70, while Calum Scott shot a 72.

But, Andy Lopez had the low round of the day for Tech, as he shot a 68.

Texas Tech finished fourth in the Big 12 Tournament with a 54-hole score of 3-under 861. Aberg won the individual title with an 8-under score that featured rounds of 68, 71, and 69 for a 54-hole total of 208.
