The past few weeks have been very busy for NCAA college golfers with many conference championships being contested at various golf courses around the country. Each conference champion from an automatic qualifying conference earns a spot in an Regional Championship, where the field for the NCAA Championships are determined.
There were many top performances including Laura Restrepo of the University of Louisville, who finished in seventh place and help the Cardinals secure the American Athletic Conference Championship. Richy Werenski of Georgia Tech University, helped his team capture the Men’s Atlantic Coast Conference Championship. Also three true-freshmen competed in their respected conference championships this season. Congratulations to all of our alums on great conference championships!
