Arizona State men’s golf will look to avenge last year’s 3-2 championship loss to Texas as they prepare once again for the title in Scottsdale. This will be final year of the successful three-year stint that the national championship will be hosted at Grayhawk Golf Club.
Preston Summerhays, Ryggs Johnston and Josele Ballester are the only three Devils that remain from last years squad. While it was Mason Andersen, David Puig and Cameron Sisk who led ASU a season ago, Preston Summerhays also carried his fair weight. This season he’s led the Devils back to the promise land.
Summerhays had six top-10 finishes through the 2023 season, including 12 rounds in the 60s.
Last season the Devils made the NCAA Championships as the No. 7 seed. This season it appears that the Sun Devils are heating up at the right time this season after shooting a NCAA and Pac-12 record 59-under during their first place win at the Las Vegas Regionals.
