Rain washes out NCAA women's golf play

Mississippi State freshman Peng Pichaikool shot his best round of the NCAA Division I men's golf regionals Wednesday, while the Ole Miss and Alabama men's teams qualified for the NCAA Men's Golf National Championship. "Like he has done all year, he showed up and put us on his back today". Fifth-place Purdue also advanced to the championships.

Wallace shot a 79 (37-42) on Wednesday, battling 30 miles per hour wind, to finish with a 1-over par 217 (68-70-79) on Purdue's par-72, 7,411 -yard Kampen Course.

Wallace fell out of contention for the overall tournament with a 42 on his first nine holes, but Sagoo backed up as well. The Dickson, Tennessee, native tied for 15th place. After starting the day with a par on the 607-yard, par-5 10th, he bogeyed the par-4 11th. Still, Purdue is headed back to the NCAA Championships. No one was better than the +6 IL had as a team.

This will mark the fifth time under head coach Greg Nye that the Lions have appeared in the NCAA Championship with appearances in 1996, 2004, 2008 and 2010 with their best finish in 2004 (15th).

Hodges led the No. 36 Crimson Tide by tying for eighth.
