Having entered Thursday with a 16-stroke margin for error, the Bruin golfers needed only not to choke yesterday in order to advance to the final match play stage of the NCAA Championships. Not only did they keep up their game, the team surpassed Georgia tech for the group stage win, securing the #1 seed in the match play competition that will determine the team national championship. Patrick Cantlay continued his stellar freshman season with a second-place finish, finishing one stroke behind LSU's John Peterson for the individual national championship.
These Bruins had little time for rest, and have already begun playing their quarterfinal match against 8th seeded Duke. The match scoreboard is here, and the NCAA will be streaming a live video feed of (presumably) the later holes starting at 11am Pacific time. This is your Golf Championships open thread.
