Auburn men's golf advances to 6th straight NCAA Championship

Small was hired as the head men's golf coach at IL in 2000 and won his first Big Ten Coach of the Year award in 2002 en route to leading the Fighting Illini to the NCAA Championships and placing 18th.

Northwestern stands atop the leaderboard after Day 1, shooting a +13 on Friday. Northwestern leads the tournament at 12-over with Kent State second at plus 15. Matt Gilchrest of Auburn and 60th-ranked Shintaro Ban of UNLV both finished in a third-place tie at 2-under-par, while the Runnin' Rebels' duo of No. 14 John Oda and No. 48 Harry Hall finished in fifth and sixth place with scores of 1-under-par and even par, respectively. UNLV won the team title at 8 over par. He finished tied for 28th at 5-over 218 (71-77-70). This was Miller's fifth individual title of the 2016-17 season and has become the second Nittany Lion to win an NCAA Regional (TJ Howe, 2010).

Also advancing out of the Regional is defending national champion Oregon. The Lobos, who started the final round of the West Lafayette Regional in the lead, fell all the way to fourth place in the team standings Wednesday. The top 18 teams advanced to the final two rounds.

"Today it's a matter of how many mistakes and what kind of mistakes you make", said Lobos Head Coach Glen Millican.

IL played good enough golf and even had Hardy earn Co-Medalist honors shooting a three-day total of -3.

He started the tournament strong but fell as the event progressed. The Eagles earned their first-ever trip to the NCAA Championships after winning the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC) Tournament. But this is a very challenging golf course and we've got to do a better job of managing ourselves.

While senior Jared du Toit notch a 3-under 68 in the final round, including three birdies in the final eight holes, the play of a freshmen trio on Wednesday - after a tough outing for two of them on Tuesday - was noteworthy. She birdied the par-4, 367-yard 17th hole and added seven pars on the back nine. The finals will be held May 26-31 at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Illinois.
