INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Texas Southern men’s golf team has been selected to participate in the NCAA Regionals being held in College Station Regional on May 15-18 at the Traditions Club Golf Course. The announcement came Wednesday during the 2022 NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Selection Show which aired on the GOLF Channel.
“We’re going to the Show! We’re going to the Show!” Texas Southern University head golf coach, Dr. Gary Grandison said.
The Tigers claimed the 2022 Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Golf Championship title at The Refuge Golf Club in April which led to an automatic qualifier to the 2022 NCAA Regionals. Freshman William O’Connor finished third individually and earned All-SWAC Medalist First Team Honors with his 1-over 217 (72-69-76). O’Connor also provided the tournament-low round of 3-under 69 in his second round.
Senior Landon Johnstone received All-SWAC Medalist Second Team Honors with his 10th place finish after posting a 225 (70-77-78). Johnstone’s 2-under 70 opening rounds set the tone for the Tigers throughout the tournament.
Freshman Joel Sullivan was one stroke back with a 226 (74-75-77) and finished tied for 12th. Junior Devansh Chadha was tied for 14th with a 227 (74-74-79) while freshman Kci Lindskog had two solid final rounds of one and two-over respectively to give him his 229 (82-73-74) total.
“This is an amazing opportunity and we hope to represent,” Dr. Grandison concluded.
The top five seeds at the NCAA College Station Regional are Pepperdine, Texas A&M, Georgia, Tennessee, and Kansas. The rest of the field consists of Arizona, Michigan State, SMU, Boise State, Oregon State, Colorado State, Southeastern Louisiana, and Texas Southern. Thirteen teams and 10 individuals not on those teams will be selected to compete at three regionals while the other three regionals will feature 14 teams and five individuals not on those teams. Thirty teams and six individuals not on those qualifying teams will then advance to the national finals. Play will begin at the six regional sites on May 15. The 2022 championship will be played at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, from May 27 to June 1.
