EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State senior Matthew Moseley travels to Columbus, Ohio to represent the Spartans at the 2013 NCAA Regional. Moseley will tee off on Thursday on 10:20 a.m. ET at the Ohio State University Golf Club's Scarlet Course to begin the three-day, 54-hole tournament.
Moseley will face 13 teams and 10 other individuals who qualified for the Columbus Regional, in an attempt to qualify for the NCAA Championships. The top-five teams and the low individual not on those teams will move on to the Capital City Club Crabapple Course in Atlanta, Ga. on May 28-June 2.
Moseley was the top Spartan all season, leading the team in eight of the 11 stroke play events. He has posted a 73.94 scoring average so far this season, which leads the team and is currently tied for 14th on the MSU single-season list.
He was named second-team All-Big Ten last week, earning his first conference postseason honor.
Overall, Moseley has three top-5 finishes, including winning the Colleton River Collegiate this season, while also posting eight top-25 showings, capped by a tie for 15th at last weekend's Big Ten Championship. At the beginning of the spring, he led MSU with a 3-1 record, helping the Spartans' to a runner-up finish at the Big Ten Match Play Championship.
For his career, Moseley is seventh on the Michigan State scoring list with a 74.87 stroke average. He has totaled eight top-10 and 17 top-20 finishes.
Moseley is just the fourth Spartan to qualify for an NCAA Regional as an individual, joining Dan Ellis last season, Jack Newman in 2010 and Ryan Brehm in 2006. As a team, the Spartans have qualified for the Regionals nine times (1992, 1993, 1994, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009).
Admission is free at the Scarlet Course.
