UNLV men’s golf senior Jack Trent will represent the Rebels at this year’s NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championships, competing as an individual at the Cle Elum Regional, May 17-19, the NCAA announced Wednesday.
The 2021 NCAA Men’s Golf Championships will feature six 54-hole regional tournaments with 13 teams and 10 individuals not on those teams at three sites, while the other three will have 14 teams and five individuals not on those teams. The low five teams and the low individual not on those teams from each regional will advance to the finals. The Cle Elum Regional will be played at Tumble Creek Golf & Country Club in Cle Elum, Washington and hosted by the University of Washington.
Trent was selected after finishing the regular season ranked 93rd in the country by Golfstat. He finished tied for first at last week’s MW Championship, but lost in a four-way playoff. The native of Sunshine Coast, Australia, who attended high school in Las Vegas, led the Rebels in scoring average this season at 70.88 strokes per round. He played eight tournaments, finished in the top five three times and recorded a low round of 66 during the final round of the Jackrabbit Invitational when he finished third. He recorded 18 of his 24 total rounds at par or better.
Team and individual medalist titles will be decided May 28-June 2 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. ASU and The Thunderbirds are the hosts for the 2021 NCAA Championship finals.
