The eighth annual Acura College Alumni Team Championship recently awarded a championship trophy to Utah State University who finished in first place for the net scoring division with a two-day score of 246.

USU alumni James Larsen, Brice Mindrum, Chad Evan and Bart Purser played in the championship. The championship field is determined through 60 individual qualifying golf tournaments held at Division I universities across the country. The participating schools come from 13 NCAA Conferences. The winning foursome from each university qualifier advances to the National Championship at Pinehurst. The qualifying tournaments serve as fundraisers for the university alumni or athletic foundations. 

In addition to the championship, the participants had the opportunity to play Pinehurst’s newest par-3 golf course, The Cradle, which also served as the course for the finals of the Bracket Division Championship.

New in 2017 was the addition of Balfour as a supporting sponsor for this year’s championship. The leader in athletic and collegiate rings, presented the winning teams with certificates for new college rings.
