TUSCALOOSA, Ala – The University of Alabama men’s golf team heads to Arizona this week to compete in the 2023 NCAA Championship. The team comes fresh off competing at regionals, where they placed third on day one, tied for first on day two, and first to win it on day three.

The No. 17 team entered regionals as the No. 3 seed and won over host and No. 9-ranked No. 2 seed Oklahoma. All five starting golfers finished among the Top 25 individuals to capture the Norman Regional.

The team has advanced to nationals 12 times under the leadership of head coach Jay Seawell, for a total of 21 times in program history. This will be the fifth time in school history and the first time since 2014 that Alabama golf has punched their ticket to a regional championship.

The last time Alabama went on to win the championship was in 2013 and 2014.

The championship is happening at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, from Friday, May 26, to Wednesday, May 31.
