Augusta University in Georgia, the same school that produced 2018 Masters Champion Patrick Reed, has this year’s NCAA Men’s Individual Title winner in senior Broc Everett, who defeated Auburn’s Brandon Mancheno in a playoff at the Tom Fazio designed Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Oklahoma. In 2011, Augusta State College(as the University was known), led by Patrick Reed( who beat Peter Uihlein 8 & 7), defeated Oklahoma State University at Karsten Creek, their home course, for the NCAA Title. But May 30 the OSU Cowboys defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide in all five of its matches to win the 2018 NCAA Men’s Golf Championship. Earlier in May the Arizona University Wildcats beat Alabama for the Women’s Division I Golf Championship, their third national championship in golf.

Bryson DeChambeau, the 24 year-old ‘mad-scientist’ from SMU, won the Memorial Tournament at Jack’s place in a two hole playoff to garner his 2nd PGA TOUR win. Let’s all go out and get the same 37.5″ clubs from Cobra and try to duplicate his swing. Well done Homie! Oh, by the way, Bryson plays the Bridgestone B-330-S after thoroughly testing many of the other top brands played by other touring pros. Does that tell you something?
