Villanova's Stahle looks to capture a National Championship

Villanova's Stahle looks to capture a National Championship

By Mike Devlin

 

Villanova club golf comes into the National Championship ranked 7th in the country and is seemingly the darkhorse of this year's tournament. The Wildcats certainly wouldn't be in the position they are in without the leadership and strong play of senior Tyler Stahle.  Nova was able to capture both Philly regional tournaments this semester, Stahle being the medalist in both tourneys shooting a day-two score of 135 (-7) in the first and 140 (-2) in the second. The senior is now the NCCGA all-time leader in medalist finishes (8), 1 of 33 players all-time to record a hole-in-one in tournament play, T-4th in total eagles and is the all-time leader in leader in total birdies with 100. All things considered Stahle is arguably the most accomplished NCCGA player in history and seeks to add one more important piece to his resume: a National Championship.

Atlantic

The Atlantic Region will be playing their first tournament of the semester this weekend at Toftrees Golf Resort in State College. The University of Pittsburgh comes into the weekend as the favorite, as they have made it to nationals each of the last 9 semesters. This past spring the region was much more competitive than it has ever been, Pitt came in third place in the first regional but was able to rebound in the second tournament to barely secure a spot at Hot Springs. The Atlantic feeds into Zone #2 for nationals qualification where Villanova, Delaware A, Michigan and Delaware B hold the top 4 spots.

Week 1 Preview

The fall 2017 season is finally here. Teams from the Ozark, South, and Twin Cities regions will all attempt to take their first step towards Vegas. We anticipate these will be three of the more competitive regions in the country as 4 of the top 12 teams in the preseason rankings will be teeing off (#1 Georgia, #3 Alabama, #5 OK State, and #12 Minnesota).

However, for the first time in NCCGA history, Zone based qualifying will be brought into play. This means that not only will teams be vying for National Championship & National Invitational Tournament bids against their own region but other regions in the country, too. The Ozark and the South Region both feed into Zone #4, so members of the Colonial, North Carolina, and Pacific should pay a little extra attention this weekend.

Major Colleges without Club Golf Teams

Major Colleges without Club Golf Teams

By Kris Hart

 

The NCCGA has been rapidly growing over the last few years and helping thousands of college students get out on the course. Our mission is to ensure every college student golfer has a place to play golf while in school. The foundation to a great club golf team is a strong leader and club president for the team. The good news is that big schools like Ole Miss, Western Kentucky, Navy, Airforce, Marshall, Temple, University of Washington, UNC Charlotte, Utah, Princeton, Kansas State, and St. Johns all recently got new leaders who are working on forming clubs on their campus. Unfortunately, the schools below do not have club golf leaders or teams on campus. Do you know any friends on these campuses that might want to play club golf?
