The tournament will span three days and will consist of three rounds at the 18-hole, 6,722-yard par-72 Findlay Country Club.
Mackenzie-Olson was selected to compete as an individual after leading Bemidji State in scoring with a 73.5 scoring average and ranks third in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference with that mark. The Wayzata, Minn., native carded five top five finishes during the 2017-18 season and tied for 11th at the NSIC Men’s Golf Championship in his most recent outing.
At a minimum, the top three teams and the top two student-athletes not with a team from each regional (regardless of region) will advance to the finals May 21-25, at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at the Shoals, Fighting Joe Course in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The remaining eight team berths will be allocated based on the regions represented in the prior year’s head-to-head medal play portion of the championships, with the maximum number of teams from a given region capped at seven. The finals will be hosted by the University of North Alabama.
