Jacob Mason's Run at NCAA III Championship Ends at Cutoff Line
HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. - Trinity University first-year Jacob Mason (Westminster, Colo. / Holy Family) of the Tiger men's golf team had his run at the 2022 NCAA III National Championship cut short Wednesday after the midway-point cutoff.
Mason shifted to the par-72 El Campeon course at the Mission Inn Resort and Club Wednesday on a 12:25pm ET tee time and produced an 11-over mark through the 6,748-yard course. A stumble on the par-3 eighth placed an exclamation point on the Tiger rookie's slow start, but he immediately bounced back with birdies on both sides of the turn and finished four-over through the back nine.
In Tuesday's opening round, Mason took on the early-session tee-time of 8:10am ET from the par-four 10th of the par-71, 6,792-yard Las Colinas course and battled through the back nine on a two-over pace despite birdies on the par-four 12th and par-three 15th. A pair of doubles met the Tiger rookie on the other side of the turn before he responded with a par-five birdie on the fifth pin.
The 2022 NCAA III Men's Golf National Championship marks the conclusion of the 2021-22 campaign for Trinity Men's Golf.
