SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The Ohio State men’s golf team moved up one position to finish in a tie for seventh place with Oklahoma at the NCAA Central Regional. The Buckeyes seventh place finish is good enough to qualify for the NCAA Championships to be held in Albuquerque, N.M. on May 27-30.

Ryan Armour (Sr., Silver Lake, Ohio) was Ohio State’s top finisher in a tie for 19th place with a 1-over-par 214. Craig Matthew (Sr., Point Claire, Quebec) ended the tournament two strokes behind Armour with a 3-over-par 216. Jeff Brown (Columbus, Ohio) improved his score everyday over the three day tournament. Brown finished third for the Buckeyes in a tie for 34th place.

This marks coach Jim Browns 22nd trip to the NCAA Championship in 25 years of coaching at Ohio State.

The Buckeyes will have two weeks to sharpen their game before the NCAA Championships.
