Arkansas, Texas A&M headed for NCAA golf showdown

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - David Lingmerth aced the third hole Friday to win his match in the semifinals, helping fourth-seeded Arkansas advance to the NCAA Division I men's team championship against Texas A&M.

While the Razorbacks beat eighth-seeded giant-killer Georgia 3-1-1, seventh-seeded Texas A&M edged sixth-seeded Michigan, 3-1-1 in a dramatic finish in the other semifinal. The Razorbacks and Aggies will each be seeking their first golf title, with neither ever finishing higher than fourth.

Matt Van Zandt clinched the decisive point for A&M with a conceded birdie after chopping a wedge out of the high rough from 96 yards to 15 feet from the pin.

Georgia beat top-seeded Oklahoma State 3-2 with a late surge earlier in the day's first quarterfinal.
