AUBURN, Alabama – Alex Goff, a senior on the Kentucky men’s golf team, carded a 1-over-par 73 to tie for 10th Wednesday at even-par for the NCAA Auburn Regional at Auburn University Club. Indiana’s Drew Salyers advanced to the NCAA Championship as low individual on a non-qualifying team at 4-under for the tournament.
Goff got off to a hot start, carding a 2-under 34 on the front nine after birdies at the par-5 third and seventh holes. The Kings Mountain, North Carolina, native sat at 3-under, two strokes back of Salyers, early in the back nine when a lightning delay halted play. However, after a two-hour delay, Goff bogeyed the par-5 13th, par-4 14th and par-5 16th en route to a back-nine 39.
A Second-Team All-SEC selection, Goff concludes a phenomenal season with a 70.73 scoring average, the best for the Wildcats since at least the 1993-94 season, topping J.B. Holmes’ 71.29 average in his 2003-04 All-America campaign. He recorded a team-best five top-10 finishes and nine in the top 20.
