Ticket, Parking Info For 2012 NCAA Men's Golf Championship

May 26, 2012

SAN DIEGO - The San Diego State men's golf team will open the 2012 NCAA Men's Golf Championship this coming Tuesday, as the 10th-ranked Aztecs join 29 other schools at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif. The event includes 54 holes of stroke play with one round played each day. The individual national champion will be crowned at the conclusion of stroke play on Thursday, while the top eight teams head to match play with the national title determined between the remaining two squads on Sunday.

SDSU, which earned the tournament's No. 10 seed, will be paired with No. 11 North Florida and No. 12 Texas A&M for the first two days. The teams start Tuesday from the first tee at 1:30 p.m. PT, while Wednesday's action gets underway on the 10th tee at 8:10 a.m. Pairings and tee times for the final round will be based on team standings.

Fans interested in attending the championship to support the Aztecs can purchase an all-session ticket in advance for just $30 at usctrojans.com. Single-day tickets will be available for $10 (cash only) at the gate on a daily basis during competition. Children 12-and-under will be admitted for free with a paying adult.

Parking for the tournament will be at nearby Paul Revere Middle School, where shuttles (taking about 5-7 minutes) will run two hours before play begins each day and will continue until two hours after the last team completes its round. The daily rate for spectator parking at the school is $10.

A link to live scoring, as well as daily recaps, highlights and post-round interviews will be available on GoAztecs.com. In addition, NCAA.com will be offering live streaming video from several holes on the course for the final four days (Thurs.-Sun.).

The San Diego State men's golf team is making the program's 27th all-time appearance at the national championships. It is the first time the program has made back-to-back trips since regional play began in 1989, and the first time overall since going to 11 in a row from 1974-84. The Aztecs have won five tournament titles already this season, including the Mountain West Conference championship for the second year in a row, and were the runner-up at last week's NCAA regional at Stanford.
