I try not to brag very often but I am very excited that my college team just won for the first time in 5 years and I won my first college tournament as a freshman!

We played 5 and counted 4. Our two day total was 297-298=595. The course was a par 70 and I shot 74-72. I was named co-champion along with one of my teammates.

I've been coaching the Division III Penn-State Behrend golf teams this year and we just played (and won) our fifth straight conference championship. When do you play yours, and do you get an automatic bid to the NCAAs in May if you win? Is there a good chance we'll see you in Rochester in 2016?

Good playing, and I know how fun it can be to play D3 golf.

Thanks everyone!

@iacas Occidental is in California so we play mostly in the spring, we only play for a month in the fall. It's a bit different than the Northeast!

Our conference championship is not until April. Our conference (SCIAC) is the most competitive in the country so it is a bit hard to get to the NCAAs. However, if we win I do believe that we get an automatic bid. Last year, 3 teams from our conference made it and hopefully we are now strong enough to compete for a spot in the NCAAs. We have a young, strong freshman class (including me!) and hopefully that will translate into a tournament win or two this year!


Top 25 DIII in the country:

Redlands - #3

Claremont McKenna - #8

La Verne - #14

Cal Lutheran - #17

All of those above are from SCIAC... We are hoping to break into the top 25 this year as well

    • Hello and welcome to TST. What one may gain from updating clubs can vastly vary. Club head technology has certainly improved with the ability to get the ball in the air and to be a bit more forgiving than older models. The shaft plays a very important role as well, maybe even more important which is why a fitting can be very beneficial. As far as expectations…hard to say. But at the very least you’ll know you’re optimizing one area of your game by having the best irons for you. Cheers.
    • Unless you have undergone swing changes I wouldn't expect any change at all.  The lofts might be stronger which could make you think you've gained distance when you haven't. 10 year old cavity back irons of good quality aren't much different from brand new ones. Your golf doesn't improve when you get new irons unless you were playing something with the wrong shaft or clubs with little or no built-in forgiveness.
    • That’s up to the respective governments to determine. Many countries only require proof of a negative test. 
    • I am sure that it wouldn't be mandated. I don't think one should be allowed to travel internationally without proof of vaccination.
    • I heard David in FL's pool hall will begin to require passport cards beginning on Monday...             😁
