STILLWATER, Okla. — The Georgia men’s golf team defeated Duke in the semifinals of the NCAA Championships on Saturday at Karsten Creek Golf Club and will play for the national title on Sunday against Augusta State.
The Bulldogs dispatched the Blue Devils 3-2 behind wins from seniors Harris English and Russell Henley and sophomore Bryden Macpherson. Augusta State, the 2010 national champion, knocked off home-standing Oklahoma State 3-2.
Sunday’s final match will be played at 1 p.m. Live scoring and video will be available at NCAA.com.
“It feels really good,” said English, who is 2-0 in the NCAAs this year. “It’s what we’ve been gearing up for all year. We’ve got three seniors (English, Henley and Hudson Swafford), and this is our final tournament. Having this opportunity really means a lot to us.”
