SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Santa Clara men's golf will learn its postseason fate on Wednesday when the field for the NCAA Championships is announced.

There will be 81 teams and 45 individuals selected to compete in the six NCAA regional sites (May 14-16) with 13 teams and 10 individuals at three regionals and 14 teams and five individuals at the others.

The field will be announced at 3 p.m. Pacific on Golf Channel (selection show begins at 2:30 p.m.).

The Broncos, No. 51 in the Golfstat.com nationally ranking, won three tournament titles this past season en route to a tie for third place in last month's West Coast Conference Championships.

From the regional sites, 30 teams and six individuals will advance to the NCAA Championships, which will be held May 25-30 at Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Santa Clara's lone appearance in the NCAAs occurred in 2006, head coach Rob Miller's first season.

Senior Hayden Shieh has earned a trip to the NCAA Championships each of his first three years.

Shieh (77), Matt McCarty (147) and Derek Ackerman (231) are each ranked among the top 250 individuals in the nation by Golfstat.
