RICHMOND, Va. – League-favorite VCU is set to chase the Atlantic 10 Conference Men's Golf Championship April 25-27 at TPC Tampa Bay in Lutz, Fla.
The Rams were tabbed the unanimous favorite at the A-10 Championships earlier this spring in a poll of league coaches. VCU will be seeking its first A-10 crown and the school's first league title since capturing the 2009 Colonial Athletic Association Championship. VCU won eight CAA championships from 1996-2009.
VCU placed second at last year's championship to Charlotte and has captured a pair of tournaments in 2013-14, including the Whiting-Turner Towson Invitational April 1-2.
Sophomore Adam Ball leads the Rams. The Richmond-native owns one victory and three A-10 Golfer of the Week awards this season. Ball's 72.82 stroke average and 12 rounds of par or better lead the team. Brother Matt Ball Jr. is close behind with a 74.18 average.
Senior Rocky Khara has been a clutch performer for VCU in past conference championships. As a freshman, Khara placed second at the CAA Championships, and last year, he was fifth at the A-10 Championship. Sophomore Steffen Harm led the Rams with a third place finish at the 2013 A-10 Championship.
Teams will play 18 holes each on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to decide the title. The winning team receives an automatic bid to the NCAA regional.
