PGA Begins Countdown To Minority Collegiate Golf Championship

  24 Days to Go

Four Division Champions Return to Defend Titlesat 24th PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship 
Four division champions return for the 24th edition of the PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship, which makes its 13th consecutive appearance, May 7-9, at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

Nearly 200 players from more than 40 colleges and universities are anticipated for the competition on the Tom Fazio-designed Ryder and Wanamaker Courses. The 54-hole, stroke-play Championship will consist of four divisions: NCAA Men's Division I and II, and NAIA Men's and Women's.

Back to defend their crowns are: Tennessee State University (Division I men's); the University of Texas-Pan American (women); and men's units from Fayetteville State University (Division II) and Edward Waters College (NAIA).

Fayetteville State University is bidding for a fifth straight title.

In addition to the team competition, the Championship features an independent competition that is open to collegiate golfers who are African-American, Hispanic-American, Native or Alaskan American, Asian or Pacific Island American.

A new men's and women's independent champion is certain with the respective graduation of University of North Carolina's Dustin Thompson and Florida State University's Sara Young.

The early favorite for a men's title is Christian Heavens of Georgetown College, a runner-up in last year's Independent Men's Division.
