GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina senior Eric Brady was selected to compete as an individual in the 2014 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships, the NCAA Division I Men's Golf Committee announced Monday.
Brady will participate in the Raleigh Regional that will be played on the Lonnie Poole Golf Course on the campus of North Carolina State University. He is one of 45 individuals who will compete at one of six 54-hole regional tournaments, which will be conducted May 15-17.
Thirteen teams and 10 individuals not on those teams will compete for the opportunity to advance to the finals from the Lonnie Poole Golf Course. The low five teams and the low individual not on those teams from each regional will proceed to the national finals, which will be conducted May 23-28 at Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, Kansas.
Other regional sites are Auburn University Club (Auburn, Ala.), The Club at Old Hawthorne (Columbia, Mo.), Rich Harvest Farms (Sugar Grove, Ill.), Eugene Country Club (Eugene, Ore.) and Briggs Ranch Golf Club (San Antonio, Texas).
"We are delighted to hear the good news that Eric will represent us at the Raleigh Regional," ECU Head Coach Press McPhaul said. "His development and maturation has been a joy to watch. I consider it an honor to have watched him work over the past two-and-a-half years. I am grateful for the opportunity to have him as part of our program, and to be able to watch him play some more rounds carrying an East Carolina bag."
Brady has led the ECU golf team with a team-best 73.49 stroke average during the 2013-14 campaign. The Cary, N.C. native led the Pirates in five events this season including a first-place finish at the Pirate Intercollegiate where he shot a 215 for his only career victory. On the year, Brady had four top 10 finishes.
