HUTCHINSON, Kan. -
Alabama's third round at the NCAA Men's Golf Championships has been postponed until Monday due to rain and thunderstorms in the Hutchinson area since Friday morning.
The conditions have forced a cancellation of the fourth round of competition (low 40 individuals and ties). Every effort is going to be made for all 156 players to complete 54 holes. After completion of the second round today (Sunday), teams 16-30 and high three individuals will begin third round play in a shotgun format approximately 40 minutes after the completion of round two.
There is a limited amount of time to complete this half of the round (teams 16-30 and three higher individuals). If play is unable to be completed in that window, all scores in that round will be declared null and void. In such a case, round three will be repaired to include only teams 1-15 and the six low individuals not on those teams (based on non-sudden death tie breaking procedures) to determine the eight teams for match play and the individual champion.
The Crimson Tide is comfortably inside the top 15 teams, alone in second place at 8-under-par 552. At the completion of 54 holes, the top eight teams will advance to the match play portion of the NCAA Championships, which will begin on Tuesday, May 27.
The third and final round of stroke play will be televised on The Golf Channel from 4-7 p.m. (CDT) Monday.
