The University of Findlay men's golf team has qualified for the 2018 Central/Midwest Super Regional, which will be hosted at the Findlay Country Club on May 7-9.
The Oilers, who won the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) title this season, will be one among 20 teams and eight individuals competing at the event for a chance to earn a trip to the national championship. They will be competing as a team in the Super Regional for the first time since the 2011-12 campaign. They took 18th at the tournament that year.
At a minimum, the top three teams and the top two student-athletes not with a team from each super regional (regardless of region) will advance to the finals May 21-25, at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at the Shoals, Fighting Joe Course in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The remaining eight team berths will be allocated based on the regions represented in the prior year's head-to-head medal play portion of the championships, with the maximum number of teams from a given region capped at seven. The finals will be hosted by the University of North Alabama.
