What else did you expect?

For the 14th time in 15 seasons, Illinois men’s golf is heading back to the NCAA Championships.

The Illini finished second Wednesday in its regional at Eagle Eye Golf Club in Michigan. Georgia came out on top — and the top five teams from the 13-team regional advance to the NCAA Championship later this month in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Illinois’ veteran squad led the way over the three rounds of play, with Adrien Dumont de Chassart, Tommy Kuhl and Mattis Besard each finishing top-10 individually. Dumont de Chassart — a three-time Big Ten Golfer of the Year — finished as runner-up.

Look here for all the scores from the regional.

The championship rounds begin May 26.
