All 20 teams and eight individuals at the Championships will complete in 54 holes of stroke play. Following the stroke play, an individual national champion will be declared. The top eight teams will then be placed into a bracket and seeded based on their 54-hole scores. Winning teams will advance to the semifinals and subsequently the finals to determine the 2018 national champion.
UMSL will begin teeing off at 8:25 a.m. tomorrow morning for its second round of 18.
