NCAA men’s golf individual and team champions from 1897 to today

Stanford wins 2019 men's golf title

For 122 years, there have been team and individual champions crowned in men’s college golf. 

The first championship sponsored by the NCAA was in 1939. Prior to that, the National Intercollegiate Golf Association sponsored the annual tournament.

The first champion, Princeton’s Louis Bayard, Jr. was crowned in 1897 and since then, collegiate champions have gone on to become legends on the PGA Tour.

Phil Mickelson and Ben Crenshaw share the record for most NCAA individual championships with three, while five men have won twice (Dick Crawford, Dexter Cummings, George Dunlap, Fred Lamprecht and Scott Simpson).

On the team side, Yale holds the most overall titles with 20. In the NCAA era since 1939, Houston has the most wins with 16 and Oklahoma close behind at 11.

The men's NCAA golf championships have been broadcast on the Golf Channel since 2014.
