The fifth-seeded Wildcats will play Round 1 alongside No. 4 Oklahoma State and No. 6 East Tennessee State, the first groups off No. 10 on Monday morning at 8:00am PT.
Director of Golf Pat Goss and head coach David Inglis‘ lineup will feature four-time First Team All-Big Ten honoree David Nyfjäll, 2023 Big Ten Freshman of the Year Daniel Svärd, James Imai, John Driscoll and Cameron Adam.
Nyfjäll has been Northwestern’s top finisher at two of its last three NCAA Regionals, finishing T29 in 2022 in Columbus, and T12 in 2019 at Myrtle Beach. Imai led the way for the Wildcats in 2021 at the Stillwater Regional, while Adam (2022) and Driscoll (2021) both have NCAA experience on their resume.
Bear’s Best Las Vegas is a unique golf course made up of 18 holes hand selected by Jack Nicklaus from his 270 designs worldwide. Nicklaus and his design team scoured photos and plans from hundreds of holes from many of his most notable golf course designs around the world to come up with these 18 holes, saying after the process that it just might have been more challenging to organize the existing 18 than to create all new holes. Bear’s Best Las Vegas has been awarded “Best Places to Play” by Golf Digest and “Best Golf Course in Las Vegas” by the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Six 54-hole NCAA Regional tournaments will be conducted May 15-17. The top five teams and the low individual not on those teams from each regional will advance to the finals. Team and individual medalist titles will be decided May 26-31 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. Arizona State and The Thunderbirds are the hosts for the 2023 championships.
