Meet the 10 men’s teams in field

Meet the 10 men’s teams in field

It’s back. And in its second year, it’s only going to be better.

The field for the 2024 Men’s National Golf Invitational is set. The postseason collegiate event entering its second season is scheduled May 16-19 at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club in Maricopa, Arizona.

Presented in partnership with Golfweek, the 2024 Men’s National Golf Invitational will feature 10 college teams competing in a 54-hole stroke-play tournament. There are three returning teams from the 2023 field, Valparaiso, Washington State and Wyoming, with seven newcomers hoping for a chance to claim a postseason title.

Think of the NGI as the NIT of collegiate golf.

In May 2022, the NCAA announced it would allow schools to play in one season-ending event. By July 2022, the inaugural National Golf Invitational was created in a partnership between Golfweek and Ak-Chin Southern Dunes, with Golfweek’s Lance Ringler serving as the Invitational’s tournament director.

Texas State captured the inaugural men’s title last spring. The women’s event gets underway Thursday with a practice round.

Here’s a look at the teams competing in the 2024 Men’s NGI:
