EUGENE, Ore. – The Kentucky men’s golf team’s bid to advance to match play at the NCAA Championship came up just short on Sunday in Eugene, Ore., but that does not diminish its rise to become one of the nation’s top teams in 2016 in which the Wildcats achieved this year.

 

From a non-tournament team a season ago, to one of the top-15 teams in the country in 2016 the Wildcats enjoyed one of the best seasons in the country under the tutelage of Brian Craig who led his team to the NCAA Championship for the sixth time in his tenure.

Senior David Snyder and sophomore Tyler “Chip” McDaniel carded rounds of 72 on the final day of play to pace the Wildcats. Snyder’s round will cap his phenomenal career in the Blue and White. He appeared in every tournament in each of his last two seasons as a Wildcat and finishes his career as a two-time NCAA Championship participant.

 

Kentucky’s 13th-place finish is its highest at the NCAA Championship since placing fifth in 2006. Continue reading: UK Men’s Golf finishes 13th in NCAA Championship for best finish since 2006

EUGENE, Ore. – One day at a time. One hole at a time. One stroke at a time.

Kentucky is in the field among 15 teams who will compete for a spot in the final eight in match play which will begin on Tuesday. Continue reading: UK men’s golf advances in NCAA Championship

Matt Gann wins 2016 Kentucky Mountain Laurel Golf Classic

Gann reclaims the crown after finishing runnerup last year.  Gann shot scores of 67-70 for a four shot win over runnerup Garrett Bradley, who actually had the low round in Sunday’s championship flight with a 3-under 69, but it wasn’t enough to overtake Gann.

IMG_0542

This year’s battle in the Senior Championship was won by Gary Bradley, who also shot a 69 on Sunday, to catch and pass defending Senior Champion Mike Granato, who entered Sunday with a 1 shot lead.  Bradley’s 69 gave him a five shot win as Granato posted back to back scores of 75.

In the first flight, cousins Braxton and Andrew Caldwell tied after 36 holes, forcing a sudden death playoff.  Braxton won on the first hole to win the flight while Andrew finished second.  In the second flight, Jay Beeler was three shots better than the rest of the flight to win that division, and in the third flight, Ryan Burchfield pulled away from the field on the final day to claim first place in that flight.

Briscoe is back!

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. – He’s baaaaaack.

 

Kentucky men’s basketball freshman guard Isaiah Briscoe plans to return to UK for the 2016-17 season after going through the process of declaring for the NBA Draft. Utilizing new NCAA rules that allow players to “test the waters,” Briscoe entered the NBA Draft without hiring an agent to protect his NCAA eligibility with the option of returning to school.

Players had until 10 days after the conclusion of the combine to make a final decision based on the new rule between the NCAA and NBA so long as they didn’t hire an agent.
