Golf team wins first-ever Big South Championship
Liberty University's men's golf team won the 2011 Big South Men's Golf Championship by 31 strokes on Wednesday, April 20, at The Patriot Golf Club in Ninety Six, S.C.
Liberty, which is ranked No. 29 in the country in the latest Golfstat rankings, finished the three-day, 54-hole event with an eight-under par 856 (290-277-289).
The win has earned the team an automatic bid to the NCAA Regionals, scheduled for May 19-21 in six different locations around the country. The Flames will learn their NCAA Regional location 10 days prior to competition. This will be Liberty's third trip to the NCAA Regionals; the team earned at-large bids in 2003 and 2006.
