Texas A&M head coach J. T. Higgins consoles Drew Evans after his team lost in a playoff

The threesome of Texas A&M’s Ty Dunlap, UCF’s Greg Eason and Arizona State’s Jon Rahm faced a one-stroke slow-play penalty when they were cited for two bad times in the third round of stroke-play qualifying at the NCAA Men’s Championship. After a long deliberation, it was determined that Dunlap and Eason were the guilty parties, while Rahm was absolved, keeping ASU’s match play hopes alive.

The extra stroke proved costly for Texas A&M, pushing them out of solo sixth and into a four-way tie for eighth. The top eight teams advance to match play, so Texas A&M found themselves in a 4-for-3 playoff with New Mexico, UNLV and Arizona State, where A&M was the lone team to be eliminated, according to GolfChannel.com’s Ryan Lavner.
