Seton Hall’s Go receives bid to NCAA golf tournament

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) Seton Hall senior Lloyd Jefferson Go of the Philippines has received an at-large bid to the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championships.

The NCAA announced the selections on Thursday, making Go the No. 5 individual seed in the West Lafayette, Indiana, Regional.

It’s the second straight year that Go has been selected for the NCAA’s marquee event. Last year, he was an automatic selection after winning the Big East individual title. He was the runner-up in this year’s conference tournament.

The Pirates’ top golfer will play among 10 other individuals and 13 teams on the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex’s Kampen Course from May 15-17.

Go has a 70.82 stroke average, the lowest for a single-year in program history.
