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.
