Stroke Play Round 1
Alex FITZPATRICK and Calum SCOTT, having originally been selected for Round 1 by their Wake Forest and Texas Tech coaches respectively didn’t make it to the first tee. Fitzpatrick had a stomach bug whilst Coach Greg Sands appears to have had a late change of heart and gone with Sandy SCOTT rather than his younger brother in the Texas Tech line up.
Likewise Callum BRUCE was called upon for the first round to play for Kansas University having initially travelled as a Reserve.
With temperatures rising to 100 degrees the course played firm and fast and proved a challenge for all of the competitors. Just seven players out of the 156 starters broke par.
Harry HILLIER (Kansas) and Brendan VALDES (Auburn) lead the Individual standings after shooting 68’s (-2).
VANDERBILT (+2) lead OREGON and AUBURN (+5) and KANSAS and ARIZONA (+6) in the team competition.

The 2022 NCAA Division I Men’s National Championship starts on Friday 27th May at Greyhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona with Arizona State University hosting the competition.
Greyhawk staged the National Championships last year and has just finished hosting the 2022 NCAA Division I Women’s event. The course is 7,289 yards long and plays to a par of 70. With a tough set up always assured few players are understandably able to break par over the 72 holes.

PGA TOUR University Velocity Global Ranking
The stroke play stage of the NCAA Championship is the final tournament for the 2022 PGA Tour University ranking.
Players finishing 1st-5th earn membership on the Korn Ferry Tour and players finishing 6th-15th secure membership on one of the PGA TOUR’s international tours.
The Current PGA TOUR University Velocity Global Ranking
Coody, McAllister and Bridgeman are already very likely to finish in the top 5 but any of the eight players ranked 4th-13th, shown above, who qualified for the Championships could still join them.
Using a target average points score of 1061 (which would be No. 5 in the current Ranking) the above table shows where each of the challenging players needs to finish to get one of the big prizes. From a GB&I perspective Alex FITZPATRICK (ENG) will need a minimum top 9 finish to secure a spot on the Korn Ferry Tour.
Unsurprisingly the weather forecast for Scottsdale, Arizona is perfect for tournament week. Perhaps a little warm in the early days for the GB&I players.
