San Jose State begins its first NCAA men's golf championship journey in 14 years at the Colorado Regional, May 19-21.

The San Jose State lineup will be the same as it was for the WAC Championship earlier in the month - Hubbard, juniors Jay Myers and Matthew Hovan and freshmen Daniel Semmler and Justin Estrada.

San Jose State's first-round tee times on May 19 now begin at 10:40 a.m. (MDT). Due to heavy rains on May 18, the Championships committee pushed back all tee times.

"There was a tornado warning around 1:30 p.m. and we were ordered to wait in the cart barn," said San Jose State head coach John Kennaday, whose team only played 14 holes before the course was deemed unplayable for the remainder of the day due to constant rain.

Playing Colorado National for the second time this season, the Spartans coach noticed several differences for the NCAA Regional Championship.

"There are a couple of new tees and the course is playing longer and softer than it did in the fall," Kennaday said about the 7.753-yard, par 72 layout - the longest 18 holes San Jose State faces this season.
