NCCGA Past National Champions
Spring Nationals – St. Louis, MO
This semester’s Nationals were centrally located, bringing in teams from all around the country. Norwood Hills CC was the host club, providing true tests to the best club golfers in the country.
Norwood Hills boasts two fantastic, championship golf courses with very different designs. Players were given two separate experiences Saturday and Sunday, and the winning team had to prove they could play on any style of golf course. Grand Canyon University were the ones to accomplish this, bouncing back from a three stroke deficit after their round on Saturday. Their first NCCGA National Championship, GCU edged out Georgia, who was searching for their third championship in four tries.
Jordan Yamamoto got to slip on the red jacket Sunday afternoon as individual champion. His score of 70 (-1) in the final round was the best of the tournament, bringing him back from a seven stroke deficit following day one. Congratulations to GCU and Jordan for a fantastic tournament!
