Stags Represented at NCAA Men’s Golf Regional Tournament
Fairfield University sophomore Alex Taylor finished competition at the 2014 NCAA Men’s Golf Regional Tournament on May 17th at the Club at Old Hawthorne in Columbia, Mo., with a three-day score of 236 (75-80-81) to place 74th overall. Taylor was just one of five student-athletes playing as individuals at the event.
Taylor was the second consecutive Stag to participate in the NCAA Men’s Golf Regional Tournament in as many years. The sophomore earned this bid by winning the McLeod Trophy at the 2014 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championship, which is presented to the top individual golfer, with a three-day score of 225 (73-77-75). Last year, teammate Steve Burak shot a MAAC Tournament record 208 (69-71-68), to capture the individual crown at the 2013 MAAC Championships and earn the program’s first NCAA Tournament berth.
“This is just thrilling. It’s two years in a row that I’ve taken an individual to the NCAAs. You can’t describe it; you have to be there to really feel it and experience it,” said Head Coach Len Roberto, who has been in the position for 15 years.
