NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships

NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships

The NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships, played in late May or early June, is the top annual competition in U.S. men's collegiate golf. It is a stroke play team competition, starting in 2009 the competition changed to a stroke play/match play competition with the top 8 teams after 54 holes of stroke play being seeded and concluding with an 8 team match play playoff. There is also an award for the lowest scoring individual competitor. Many individual winners have gone on to have successful careers on the PGA Tour, including 1961 champion Jack Nicklaus, 1967 champion Hale Irwin, 1996 champion Tiger Woods, and three-time champions Ben Crenshaw and Phil Mickelson.



Note: The NCAA was founded in 1906. The first championship sponsored by the NCAA was in 1939. [1]
