Table Of Contents
This year is the 84th NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship. For the third and last year, it will be played on the Raptor Course at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Previous winners of the National Championship include some pretty famous names in golfing who would go on to win multiple PGA Tours, such as Jack Nicklaus, Hale Irwin, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, and Ben Crenshaw. Nicklaus, Mickelson, Woods, Ryan Moore, and Bryson DeChambeau are the only players to have won the college golf individual championship and the US Amateur in the same year.
NCAA Men’s Golf Championship Format
Six regional golf tournaments were hosted by colleges around the country from May 15 to 17. The top five teams from each go on to the finals, plus the top-scoring individual not on one of those teams, making for a total of 156 players — thirty teams and six individuals.
At the finals, the tournament starts off as a stroke play team competition. After 54 holes, the field is cut to the top 15 golf teams and 9 individuals not on one of those 15 teams.
Those 84 participants play 18 more holes of stroke play. The lowest-scoring student-athlete of those 72 holes is the individual champion. Last year’s individual champion was Gordon Sargent of Vanderbilt.
The bottom four teams from the last 18 holes of stroke play are cut, and the remaining eight teams continue in a match play playoff to determine the team champion. The 2022 winners of the team title were the Texas Longhorns.
The Golf Channel schedule is:
- May 26-28: Individual and team stroke play (first 54 holes)
- May 29 : Individual stroke play final round/team stroke play qualifier
- May 30 : Team match play quarterfinals
- May 30 : Team match play semifinals
- May 31 : Team match play finals
