INDIANAPOLIS, I.N.– The Georgia men’s golf team will begin its quest for another national championship May 14-16, 2015 at the NCAA Regional hosted by the University of San Diego, according to an announcement Monday by the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Committee.
The Bulldogs are seeded sixth in the San Diego Regional, which will be held at The Farms Golf Club in Racho Santa Fe, C.A. Thirteen teams will compete in the Regional, with the top five teams advancing to the NCAA Championships May 29-June 3, 2015 in Bradenton, F.L.

“We are definitely looking forward to playing in the San Diego Regional,” Georgia coach Chris Haack said. “The field is a strong one, and we’ll have to be at our best to be one of the teams to advance. As usual, there is no margin for error at this time of the season. We’ll have to practice hard in the coming days and come into this event extremely focused.”
The Bulldogs were invited to an NCAA Regional for the 26th time in 27 years since the format was introduced for the 1989 season. In the previous 25 years, Georgia has advanced to the NCAAs 19 times. The Bulldogs have
been invited to an NCAA Regional in all 19 of Haack’s seasons and have moved onto the NCAAs in 16 of the previous 18 campaigns. Haack led the Bulldogs to the 1999 and 2005 national titles and to runner-up finishes in
2007 and 2011.
