AUBURN, Ala. (5/16/23) – Arkansas State senior Luka Naglic carded a second-round 76 Tuesday at the NCAA Regional men’s golf tournament in Auburn, Ala., giving him a combined 36-hole 153 total as he stands tied for 48th among the 75-player field.
One of nine individuals selected to compete in the regional, Naglic opened the three-day tournament yesterday with a first-round 76, but shot 5-over today. The low five teams and the low individual not on those teams will advance to the finals.
Indiana’s Drew Salyers (-4) enters the final round as the highest individual not on one of the top five teams in the current standings. Playing on its home course, Auburn (-1) leads the team standings followed by Chattanooga (E), Colorado State (+2), Vanderbilt (+4) and Ohio State (+11). Indiana trails Ohio State by a single stroke while TCU and Washington are tied for seventh at 14-over.
The Zirovnica, Slovenia, native is the sixth A-State men’s golfer to ever compete as an individual at an NCAA Regional. Naglic is the first individual qualifier since Tanner Napier at the 2018 NCAA Regional hosted by Oklahoma. Zan Luka Stirn (2017), Lloyd du Preez (2010) and Zoltan Veress (1998, 1999) also participated in NCAA Regionals as qualifiers.
The final round of the NCAA Regional in Auburn will begin at 8:00 a.m. Wednesday, and Naglic is set to tee off on hole one at 10:01 a.m. Live results at the event are available on Golfstat.com.
