Patrick Welch and the Oklahoma Sooners are the top seed in the Norman, Oklahoma regional. 

Meaning, they get to stay home and play at their home course. 

Norman was added as a regional after the NCAA deemed the Alabama course was in unplayable condition. 

“We’re obviously excited to host a regional at our home course. The field is a great field that will test us and we’re excited for that opportunity. You don’t get into postseason play without being a great team, so we’re excited,” said Oklahoma Head Coach Ryan Hybl.

The Cardinals were poised to make the NCAA Tournament from the start of the season, but things got a little interesting after they missed the cut in the ACC Tournament.
