The Texas Tech men’s golf team is in fourth place after the first round of NCAA Regional action at Yale’s New Haven Course on Monday.

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 quality day, as they fired a 9-under par 271 on Monday.

Texas Tech is in a good spot with the field bunched up in front of them, and are just four shots out of the lead, held by Wake Forest and North Florida, both of which shot 13-under-par.

Georgia Southern is third at 10-under.

North Carolina and Illinois are tied for fifth at 7-under, two shots behind the Red Raiders.
