Michigan State golf is moving on. The men’s and women’s teams will both be competing in upcoming regionals.

The success that spring sports teams have had started with baseball and now has moved to both of the Michigan State golf teams. Both teams found out that they are headed to the regionals for college golf.

College golf has six different regionals and 13 teams make each of the regionals. That means that both the men’s and women’s golf team is in the top 78 teams in the country. This comes after a very successful season during Big Ten play. One of the coolest parts of these regional tournaments is that teams can play close to home. This is going to be the case for the men’s team as they will be playing at Eagle Eye in Bath, Mich. This will be an advantage because, for most of them, they have probably played on the course a few times.

How did both golf teams get to being selected for regionals and where are they seeded?

The Michigan State women’s golf team is coming off their finish at the Big Ten championships and they finished tied for sixth place, going +45 over the three days with their top six players playing. This is good enough to put Michigan State at No. 34 in the country. This ranking put the women’s team into the Raleigh Regional which includes teams like Wake Forest, Arizona State, and Purdue.

The women’s team is currently a 6-seed, which is just outside the top five that they need to get to the national championship. While they are just on the outside, Michigan State does have 54 holes to get into the national championship, and it’s possible.

The men’s golf team is just coming off of their finish at the Big Ten championships where they finished in ninth place by going +30 over the tournament. This put the men’s team at No. 61 in the country and as a 10-seed in the regional that Michigan State is hosting. This means that the men’s team has a ways to go to even qualify for the national championship but it’s possible because they were able to get into the regionals. While this is not ideal, it is still great for the men’s team to make it as they are representing the university.

Both the men’s and women’s teams are going to play another 54 holes and have a chance to play even more while representing Michigan State. While both teams are on the outside looking in on the top five of their regional, both teams do have a chance to advance. If either team advances, this will just continue the successful spring that Michigan State has had.

Best of luck to both of these teams at their regionals.
