UTSA golfer earns at-large selection to NCAA Men's Golf Regional
(May 4, 2017) -- The NCAA Division I Men's Golf Committee has selected the teams and individuals to participate in the 2017 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships and UTSA junior Zander Lozano has earned an at-large selection to the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional.
The Baton Rouge Regional, one of six 54-hole regional tournaments across the country, will be hosted by LSU on Monday-Wednesday, May 15-17, at the University Club. Fourteen teams and five individuals will play 18 holes of stroke play each day. The low five teams and the low individual not on those teams from each regional will advance to the NCAA Championships finals on May 26-31 at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Illinois.
Lozano becomes the third Roadrunner to be selected to compete as an individual in the NCAA postseason, joining Magnus Dohlvik (1998) and Mike Mezei (2004).
Named second-team All-Conference USA earlier on Thursday, Lozano leads the Roadrunners with a career-best 71.79 stroke average and seven top-20 finishes, including a pair of individual titles, in 2016-17. The Fair Oaks Ranch native has placed in the top 10 four times, highlighted by winning Price's "Give 'Em Five" Invitational with a school-record 14-under-par 202 (66-70-66) to help guide UTSA to a runner-up finish last October in El Paso. He also tied for first at the Sam Hall Intercollegiate after firing a 5-under 208 (72-69-67) last September. He now owns 10 career top 10s.
Lozano tied for sixth at back-to-back tournaments in March when he carded a 71-68—139 at the rain-shortened Border Olympics and a 69-66-74—209 at the Lone Star Invitational at Briggs Ranch Golf Club. He turned in a 223 (73-74-76) to tie for 17th at the C-USA Championship in his last outing. A two-time C-USA Player of the Week honoree this season, Lozano has broken 70 10 times as a junior and owns the school record with 16 career sub-70 rounds.
