NCAA postseason proposals move forward

Donnie Wagner, assistant director of NCAA Championships, confirmed Friday, Sept. 28 what *Golf World *and *Campus Insider *first reported Sept. 27: that the proposals to change the NCAA Championship brought forward by the NCAA Division I men's golf committee this summer—to expand the number of regional sites from three to six and to restructure nationals with a 54-hole cut that leaves eight teams to compete in a medal/match-play format to determine a team champion—had been approved by the NCAA Championship Cabinet. Wagner said that the next stage of the process is for the proposals to be reviewed by the NCAA Management Council at their meeting next month in Indianapolis. The proposals are intended to be in place for the 2008-09 season. Wagner said that the decision on how many holes will be used to determine the NCAA individual champion next June at Purdue's Kampen Course is still to be determined.
