Green Bay's Ebert Concludes NCAA Regionals
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Green Bay junior Chad Ebert (Kenosha, Wis.) fired a 76 on Saturday in the final round of the NCAA Ann Arbor Regional at the University of Michigan Golf Course, concluding the first trip to the NCAA Championships by a Phoenix golfer as well as Ebert's impressive 2011-12 campaign.
On Saturday, Ebert started on the back nine and was three over at the turn. After an early bogey and double bogey on the front nine, the junior played the final five holes at one-under par. The round was highlighted by a birdie two at the 159-yard, par-3 eighth hole.
Ebert's rounds of 76, 79 and 76 left the junior alone in 69th place at 18-over 231 for the 54-hole event. North Carolina State's Albin Choi won the regional's individual title and berth in the 2012 NCAA Championships at Riviera Country Club, finishing the tourney at 10-under par after three rounds in the 60s.
Southern Cal won the team championship while Oregon, Kent State, Virginia and TCU will also advance to the NCAA Championships from the Ann Arbor Regional.
Ebert's 2011-12 season was among the best in Phoenix school history. He was named to the All-Horizon League team, was the first Phoenix golfer to win medalist honors at the Horizon League Championships since 2001 and is the first golfer in school history to advance to the NCAA Championship.
As a team, the Phoenix finished in second place at the 2012 Horizon League Championships, and head coach Bill Lindmark's team will return its top-six golfers next season.
