DI Championships Cabinet approves new golf format

  On Monday, the NCAA approved a revised format of the men's and women's golf championships.

The Division I Championships/Sports Management Cabinet approved an adjustment to the format of the 2015 men’s and women’s golf championship finals. The change replaces the individuals-only day on Monday with play by the top 15 teams and nine individuals not on one of the advancing teams.

The 2015 finals format for both championships will consist of three days (54 holes) of stroke play for all, Friday through Sunday.

After Monday, the top eight teams advance to the match-play team championship, and the 72-hole individual national champion will be determined.

Both the men’s and women’s Division I golf committees believe the revised format will add excitement to the championships, which will be televised live during the last three days of each event by the Golf Channel.

The team national champions will be determined by a match-play format consisting of quarterfinals and semifinals played on Tuesday, followed by the finals on Wednesday.

The Division I Women’s Golf Championships are scheduled for May 22-27, and the men’s championships are scheduled for May 29-June 3. Both will be played at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Florida, with the University of South Florida serving as host.
