COLUMBIA — For the second consecutive year, the Missouri men's golf team has qualified for the NCAA postseason with a selection to the 14-team Southeastern Regional, hosted by top-seeded Florida.

The Tigers, one of seven Big 12 Conference teams to qualify for NCAA regional play, will be the 10th seed at the event set for May 19 through 21 at the Golden Ocala Golf Club in Ocala, Fla. Baylor is the No. 7 seed.

The top-five teams and individuals will advance to the NCAA Championships, set for May 31 through June 5, at Karsten Creek Golf Course in Stillwater, Okla.

Last season, Missouri finished tied with Arizona for 10th out of the 13 teams at the Southwest Regional at Carlton Oaks Golf Club in Santee, Calif.  

The last time Missouri advanced to the NCAA finals was in 2005, when the Tigers earned a 16th-place finish.
