NCAA Division I men's golf regional primer

This year marks the 10th season with the six-regional format in men’s golf. Five teams will advance out of each of the six regionals.

Is there an advantage to hosting a regional? A look at the teams that have hosted regionals and those teams success rates.

  • Teams that have hosted a regional are 28 of 38 (73.6 percent) in advancing to the NCAA finals.
  • Teams that are hosting a regional and seeded within the top 5 are 23 of 26 (88.5 percent) in advancing to the NCAA finals.
  • Teams that are hosting a regional and seeded outside the top 5 are 5 of 11 (45.4 percent) in advancing to the NCAA finals.

Last year marked just the second time a No. 1 seed has missed advancing out of regional play. Clemson missed in 2009 and last year Florida failed to qualify for the finals.

Below is a look at how the seeds have performed since the six-regional format:

No. 1 = 52/54
No. 2 = 44/54
No. 3 = 47/54
No. 4 = 35/54
No. 5 = 19/54
No. 6 = 25/54
No. 7 = 14/54
No. 8 = 10/54
No. 9 = 14/54
No. 10 = 5/54
No. 11 = 4/54
No. 12 = 1/54
No. 13 = 0/54
No. 14 = 0/54
