Coach Tim Straub gives high fives all around as the ‘Cats celebrate the announcement that they will be playing in the NCAA Regional Championship in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.


DAVIDSON, N.C. – Fresh off its second straight Atlantic 10 Championship and third in four appearances, Davidson received the league’s automatic berth to play in the 2022 NCAA Men’s Golf Regional, May 16-18 at PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

The Wildcats, who are making their third NCAA Regional appearance as a team, fired a 54-hole total of 851 (-13) over the weekend to rally past VCU and claim the program’s eighth conference crown. 

The ‘Cats showed off the A10 trophy.

“I am so proud of this team — they never gave up,” said head coach Tim Straub. “It was an amazing finish, playing the last six holes in 10-under par to win by two shots. Every one of them, Viraj, Clayton, Ethan, Alex and Will battled to the end. This team has shown great resilience all year. Our seniors Clayton Tribus and Viraj Garewal capped off great careers with a runner up finish and two Atlantic 10 titles. We are very excited for the next step, the NCAA Regional.” 

Davidson competed in the NC State Regional in 2018 and Florida State Regional last season, where it finished tied for 10th with No. 23 LSU.
