Alabama men's golf advances to semifinals of NCAA Championships

Alabama men's golf is a step closer to national championship gold.

The Crimson Tide defeated New Mexico 4-1 in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championships on Friday. The victory was the most lopsided of the four match-play contests being played at the Crabapple Course at the Capital City Club in Milton, GA.

Alabama's Cory Whitsett, Justin Thomas, Scott Strohmeyer and Bobby Wyatt won their matches.

The Crimson Tide will meet Georgia Tech on Saturday in the semifinals. California and Illinois match up in the other semifinal.

Alabama men's golf was defeated in the finals of the NCAA Championships last season.
