VIDEO: NCAA golfer holes out for eagle in playoff for nat’l championship bid

Troy University's Tolver Dozier put to a quick end a sudden-death playoff for a spot in the NCAA men's golf individual championship.

On the first extra hole of the regional qualifier at The Course at Yale, Dozier holed out for eagle from 138 yards away in the fairway to defeat Ohio State's Addison Coll and earn a berth in the championship at Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla., on May 29.

"It's crazy," Dozier said, according to the New Haven Register. "I was just trying to hit it close and I got lucky that it went in. It's pretty cool. It's my senior year and it's kind of icing on the cake."

The players had each finished the 54-hole event at 4 under par, tied for the lowest score among players whose teams did not qualify for the championship in the regional.
