SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — senior red shirt Evans Lewis is set to play as an individual in the 2022 NCAA Men’s Division I Golf Championship (May 27-30) on Friday. Lewis will leave at 4:42 p.m. (ET) at the first hole of the afternoon wave. He is paired with Gardner-Webb’s Zack Byers and Washington’s RJ Manke and will be one of six individuals competing in the national championship stroke play.

Lewis qualified for the NCAA Championship at Grayhawk Golf Club after finishing T-5e at the Normand Regional (May 16-18). He shot 210 (-6) with three consecutive rounds under par, including a 69 (-3) over his last 18 holes of the tournament.

“Evans is looking really sharp with his game right now and I think Grayhawk is a good setup for him,” the head coach said. bill mcdonald. “It’s imperative that you hit the fairways here and that he drives the ball very well. The greens are firm and a little cooked so he’s going to have to be patient with his putt and miss the ball low side in most cases. . I’m excited for him this week, and it should be a great experience.”

The Sumter, SC native is the fourth Gamecock in program history to play in the NCAA Championship as an individual joining the All-Americans Ryan Room (2021), Davis Seawell (1994, 1995) and Steve Liebler (1980).
