Four stories to keep an eye out for the men’s college golf postseason
On Wednesday, May 4th, the 2022 DI Men’s Golf Regional was announced live on the Golf Channel. Oklahoma, Vanderbild, Oklahoma, Arizona, North Carolina, and Pepperdine have all ended as first seeds in their respective regions. There have been great performances from these and other teams from all over the country, and it only gets better as the road to the Greyhawk Golf Club becomes clearer.
Here are four storylines to prepare for the
1. Bedlam can decide the title of the country
I saw Oklahoma and Oklahoma State competing in the East Lake Cup in the fall. The Suners defeated Cowboys 32 in the final. This spring, they will put their necks and necks on top of the leaderboard, with a strong roster from top to bottom.
Oklahoma won three events with an average of six shots, and Oklahoma State won two. The Suners returned to the final round of the Big 12 Championship, winning six shots at Oklahoma State and Texas.
To keep the long story short, here are two players to note: Eugenio Lopez Chacarra from OSU and Chris Gotterup from OU. Both have a batting average of less than 70, and this spring Lopez Chakara won two Gotter Ups. Both finished in the top 5 of the Big 12 Championship. Gotterup finished second in solo with 6 under, and Lopez Chacarra finished the tournament in 3 rounds and 3 rounds in T6.
2. Texas is getting hot at just the right time
Longhorns will start putting it together at the right time. After the slow start in spring, he won three tournaments in April.
After taking some risks in the front nines in the final round of the
Big 12 Championship, Texas seemed to settle in the second half. But when Oklahoma returned to win the conference title.
Bogey began summing in the last four holes. Although it was short, the Longhorns had four players and were ranked in the top 15 in their individual rankings.
Pearsson and Parker Coody, along with Cole Hammer, Mason Nome, and Travis Vic, form the heart of the Longhorns team. Coody’s twins lost for a while due to an injury this spring, but are below average (72) and have three top 10 finishes.
3. Pepperdine trying to repeat
Pepperdine received the 2021 country-wide championship and took lower back 5 gamers to attempt to come to be the primary lower back-to-lower back champion in view that Alabama in 2013-2014.
For the maximum part, the numbers are near what they have been closing yr. The roster length is a piece smaller with simply six gamers this yr as compared to ten in 2021. As a team, the Waves have one win and one end out of doors in the top-10 in seven activities this spring.
Dylan Menante and Joe Highsmith are still two leaders of this team. Menante has won the last two starts at the Valspar University Invitational and Western Intercollegiate and has achieved three Top 10 finishes this season.
4. Individual title race heating up
There is no singles repeat champion as 2021 champion Turk Petit von Clemson has turned pro. This year, the fields of award-winning candidates are equally diverse.
Apart from the above, Sam Bennett of Texas A & M was the best individual of the season. He has the lowest batting average at 69.35 and has four top finishes, including a win at the Louisiana Classics. His only non-top five finish this spring was Valspar University (T22).
Texas Tech’s Luz Viaberg will also be mixed this season. This spring he finished out of the top 10 with seven starts. It was T15 at Amer Ari Invitational in February. He won a two-stroke victory in the Big 12 Championship and added his second victory of the year to his resume.
Other players who have played well this season and should compete in the National Singles Championship are Fred Biondi of Florida, Michael Brennan of Wake forest, R.J. Manke of Washington, and Cole Sherwood of Vanderbilt.
