NCAA Cancels 4th Round of Competition for Individuals
In response to weather delays, championship committee will attempt to have all 30 teams complete 54 holes
May 25, 2014
Hutchison, Kan. - In an attempt to have all 30 teams complete 54 holes, after four weather delays, Round 4 of competition (low 40 individuals and ties) at the 2014 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships has been cancelled.
According to the NCAA's release, "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."
No word yet on what this means for Georgia Tech's starting time for round 3, which now likely will be sometime Monday. Round 2 must be completed for teams to be seeded for round 3, and the Yellow Jackets currently are tied for eighth place with 15 teams set to return to the course at 12:40 p.m. Eastern time to complete their second rounds.
