The NCAA in conjunction with the Golf Channel announced on Wednesday the regional hosts and seedings for this year’s men’s golf tournament.

The Florida Gators found out that they will be playing in the West Lafayette Region as a No. 3 seed this year. It is the fourth straight year the Gators have been a top-three seed in regionals and the seventh time under head coach J.C. Deacon.
