NCAA Men’s Regional recaps for Monday’s opening round


Team leader: Texas, -6

Individual leaders: Travis Vick, Texas, -4

The hook: Texas is crazy good at golf. Motivated after a third-place finish at the Big 12 Championship, four Longhorns are in the top 30 after the first round, with three inside the top 11, led by Vick, a sophomore who boasts some serious game. Pierceson Coody and Cole Hammer, who each competed last week at the Walker Cup, sit T-4 and T-11, respectively.

Texas didn’t win at the pace their accustomed to this season, but the three players with national championship experience are getting hot at the right time. Watch out.

If the cut were today: 1. Texas; T-2. Tennessee; T-2. North Florida; T-2. North Carolina; 5. Louisville

What to watch for Tuesday: All of the top five seeds in the region find themselves currently inside the cut line. On the outside looking in is UNCW, the No. 9 seed who sit sixth, two shots back after a 2-over performance on Monday. The Seahawks were forced to withdraw from the Colonial Athletic Association Championship last month due to “COVID-19 protocols within the Seahawks’ program” but find themselves in position to make a move.
