After winning their first conference title in school history, the Cougars earned the ninth seed at the NCAA Baton Rouge regional, where they will continue their postseason play.

The Cougars recently wrapped up their regular season and began their postseason play in stunning fashion by taking first place at the American Athletic Conference Championships, but now they will set their sights on the regional round of the playoffs.

The Cougars are one of the 72 teams split between four regionals, with the conference foe East Carolina University Pirates joining the Cougars in Baton Rouge as the eighth overall seed.

“This is the time of year you want to peak, and we are continuing to get better,” head coach Gerrod Chadwell said in a news release. “We are putting our best golf together now. I like the way we are trending. We just have to continue to do what we are doing. We don’t have to do anything we haven’t done all year.”

The Cougars will be playing at the University Club course for the second time this season, which Chadwell said was no coincidence.

“This is exactly why we scheduled the LSU Tiger Classic for this spring,” Chadwell said. “University Club is a very challenging course, but we should see similar conditions from what we saw a month ago.”

The regional will contain three rounds, with play beginning on Thursday, May 5 and continuing through Saturday, May 7. After the three days of play, six teams with the lowest scores and three individual golfers with the lowest scores not on those teams will advance to the NCAA Championships, which will be hosted in Eugene, Oregon.
