(San Diego, CA) - Darrin Hall, a redshirt sophomore from Golden, Colorado, has been selected to participate as an individual in the upcoming 2007 NCAA West Region Men's Golf Championships. The three-day event will be held at ASU's Karsten Golf Course (par 72, 7,057 yards) beginning Thursday, May 17th, and finishing up on Saturday, May 19th."Darrin has had an outstanding year and I'm pleased to announce that his hard work and good play has earned him an individual spot at the NCAA West Regional in Tempe, Arizona," said fourth-year head coach Tim Mickelson.
Hall, who was one of three Toreros to be named First Team All-West Coast Conference, led the team in scoring this season with an average of 72.30 over 33 rounds. Over his final five tournaments, he placed 2nd once (USF Triumph at Pauma Valley) and 5th two times (USD Callaway and WCC Championships). This season he had five rounds in the sixties, including a low of 66 at the Hawaii Fall Intercollegiate where he finished in a tie for first before falling in the playoff.
In order for Darrin to advance to Nationals, he must finish in the top 2 of individuals from schools not advancing to Nationals. He is joined by five other individual selections - Brian Locke of LMU, Dustin Pimm of Utah, Michael McRae of Saint Mary's, Geoff Gonzalez of Cal Poly, and Thomas Peterson from the University of the Pacific.
