The Virginia Tech golf team has worked hard all season and that has paid off with a spot in Nationals.
Not only is it a chance to play for a NCAA title against 29 of the best golf teams in the country, but it is also a chance to play at an internationally renowned course.
"Riviera, it's one of the most prestigious courses in the country," Tech sophomore Bryce Chalkley said. "The Tour plays on it every year. It's in L.A. It's going to be an awesome trip. We're really looking forward to it."
For the Hokies, it is an amazing opportunity to play at such a pristine course.
"The National Championship is what you strive for all year long. It'll be a wonderful treat because the players get to play one of the finest golf courses in the world, a renowned golf course that's hosted Tour events for 60 or 70 years," added head coach Jay Hardwick. "But we still have to keep things in perspective. We're out there to compete. We're out there to play for a National Championship."
The Hokies get to play Riviera for the first time on Monday during their practice round, before starting tournament play on Tuesday.
Hardwick likes his team's chances, "We think it's a good golf course for us because it is a difficult and demanding golf course."
