Fear not, college golf fans. Some of your favorite teams will be playing this fall after all.
On Thursday afternoon the Southeastern Conference made a major announcement detailing new start dates and formats for its fall sports, including men’s and women’s golf.
SEC teams are able to compete in no more than three team events beginning no earlier than October 1. Men’s and women’s golf teams will be limited to events involving only SEC-member schools or non-conference schools from the same region.
The SEC is the lone Power 5 conference to announce plans to play. The ACC, Big Ten and Pac-12 have all decided against fall golf. The Big 12 has yet to make any announcement.
