Alabama Golf Ranked Third

The University of Alabama men's golf team stayed at the No. 3 spot in the latest Golf World/NIKE Golf Coaches' Poll released on Wednesday. The Crimson Tide, coached by Jay Seawell, finished second at the 2007 Southeastern Conference Golf Championships on Sunday, Alabama's best finish in the league championships in 24 seasons, since 1983.

Alabama is ranked No. 4, a drop of one spot, in this week's Golfweek/Sagarin rankings. In the men's individual rankings in that poll, two Crimson Tide golfers rank among the nation's top 50 collegiate golfers. Michael Thompson is ranked No. 30 and Gator Todd ranks No. 38.

Georgia ranks No. 1 in the Coaches' poll and No. 2, behind Stanford, in the Sagarin rankings.

The Tide has one regular season tournament remaining on its schedule, the May 13-14 Linger Longer Invitational. Alabama is expected to be either a No. 1 or No. 2 seed when the NCAA announces the fields for its three regional championships on May 7.
