History made as Armstrong garners NCAA regional bid

INDIANAPOLIS – A historic season for Lipscomb freshman men’s golfer Dawson Armstrong will continue May 14-16 as the newcomer has been selected to compete in the 2015 NCAA Division I men’s golf championship.

The Atlantic Sun Conference Newcomer of the Year is one of 45 individuals chosen to advance to the
Chapel Hill, North Carolina regional hosted by the University of North Carolina at the University of North Carolina Finley Golf Course.

“I couldn’t be prouder of what Dawson has done this year,” said Lipscomb head men’s golf coach Will Brewer. “Getting a regional invitation is something we were trying to do as a team but we didn’t quite make it. I’m so proud of Dawson being selected”

Armstrong becomes the first Lipscomb men’s golfer to receive an individual selection to the championship.   The regional features a 54-hole, 3-day event.  Joining Armstrong and nine other individuals in the field are Florida State, Stanford, North Carolina, Kennesaw State, Wake Forest, Clemson, Florida, Georgia Regents, North Carolina-Charlotte, McNeese State, Penn State, Miami (Ohio) and Loyola (Maryland).

“I’m looking forward to seeing him play in the tournament,” said Brewer. “He’s playing great and with a lot of confidence right now.  I have every expectation that he will play well.”

The five lowest teams and the individual with the lowest score not on one of those five teams will advance to the NCAA Championship held May 29-June 3 at the Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Florida.
