Lange will head to Lubbock, Texas where he will compete among a field of 13 teams and 10 individuals at Rawls Course in a regional hosted by Texas Tech. He was selected as the No. 3 seed among the individuals.

 

“I am excited for Victor to be rewarded for having such a good year,” Tech head coach Jeff Jenkins said of Lange’s selection. “His ability to control trajectory and the flight of the ball will be in his favor at the Rawls Course.”

 

The Rawls Course is the home site of Texas Tech University, a course that Jenkins knows well. Jenkins accepted the head coach position with the Bulldogs after four years as an assistant coach at Texas Tech.

 

Lange enters the NCAA postseason schedule as the highest-ranked Conference USA golfer at No. 78 nationally.

 

Last season Lange became the first Tech golfer to receive an NCAA Regional bid. He finished tied for 25th at 4-over-par at Briggs Ranch Country Club in San Antonio, Texas.

 

“It is huge having NCAA postseason experience,” Jenkins said. “While we talk about how each event is no bigger than the next, having postseason experience can only be an asset. I think he will know what to expect more this time than a year ago and that should help him play to his potential.”

 

The NCAA Regional round is a 54-hole stroke-play tournament over three days. The low five teams and the low individual not on those teams from each regional will advance to the finals.

 

Six 54-hole regional tournaments will be conducted May 14-16. Thirteen teams and 10 individuals not on those teams will compete at each of the three regionals while the other three regionals will have 14 teams and five individuals not on those teams.

 

The finals will be conducted May 29 – June 3 at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Florida on the campus of the University of South Florida.
