UTEP’s Charles Corner Heads to NCAA Championships

For the first time in 14 years, UTEP men’s golf will be represented at the NCAA Championships as Charles Corner heads to Stillwater, Oklahopma for the 2018 NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championships May 25-30 at the Karsten Creek Golf Club (par 72/7,460 yards).

Finals play consists of three days of stroke play Friday through Sunday (54 holes), after which the top-15 teams and nine individuals not on an advancing team will be determined.

A final day of 18 holes of stroke play on Monday will determine the top-eight teams that will advance to match play as well as the 72-hole individual champion. The team national champion will be determined by a match-play format that will consist of quarterfinals and semifinals conducted on May 29, with the finals following on May 30.

“This is super exciting for Charlie and myself, but its about Charlie,” head coach Scott Lieberwirth said. “It’s awesome for him and for our program. We’re ready to go have some fun and see the competition at the top college level. It’s a big stage, but once the tournament starts, it’s just golf. ”

Making up the 30-team field, by seed, is Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Vanderbilt, Alabama, Florida, Auburn, Illinois, Baylor, Texas Tech, Clemson, Texas, North Carolina, Brigham Young, Kansas, Stanford, Arkansas, Arizona State, UNLV, North Florida, Kentucky, UCLA, Duke, Kent State, Oregon, Northwestern, NC State, Iowa State, Central Florida and Augusta.

Out of the 156 competitors, Corner will join the six individual qualifiers as the no. 5 seed, taking the field with Kyle Mueller (Michigan), Braden Thornberry (Ole Miss), George Cunningham (Arizona), Joshua McCarthy (Pepperdine) and Pontus Nyholm (Campbell).
