The University of Missouri men’s golf team earned a bid to the 2024 NCAA Championship, receiving an at-large invitation to the Stanford, California, regional on Wednesday.

Mizzou earned its third-straight invitation to the NCAA Tournament, marking the first time in school history the Tigers advanced to the national postseason in three-straight campaigns.

The Tigers earned the No. 8 seed in the regional, which is slated to begin Monday, May 13. No. 6 Florida State is the top seed in the region, while Mizzou will also be joined by Ole Miss, Illinois, Texas A&M, Stanford, UCLA, SMU, Fresno State, UNLV, Augusta, Liberty, Sacramento State and Siena.

Overall, Mizzou is making its 17th appearance in the regional round of the NCAA Championship since the format was first adopted in 1989. The Tigers have twice advanced to the championship rounds in 2005 and 2014 with eight additional appearances in the final round prior to 1989. Last season, the Tigers placed seventh as a team in the Morgan Hill, California, regional with Charlie Crockett leading the team as an individual in fourth place.

The action begins on Monday, May 13 with the three rounds of action finishing on May 15. The top five schools from each region advance to the championship round, which is slated to begin on May 24.
