MANHATTAN, Kan.The Kansas State men’s golf team is set to compete in the first NCAA region since 2009, as the Wildcats travel to Norman, Oklahoma for the 2022 NCAA Norman Regional, held Monday through Wednesday on the par-72, 7,452 meter long Jimmie Austin Golf Club.

“We are excited to get started in Norman this week,” head coach Grant Robbins said. “The golf course is in fantastic condition and will be a great test. I think it’s a course that suits us well.”

The Cats were selected for the regional as a number 11 seed after completing one of the best regular seasons in school history.

K-State claimed six places in the top five, which is fourth in a single season in school history. Through 10 stroke play events, the Cats are on pace for the second lowest batting average in school history at 287.67.

They will be joined at the regional by No. 1 Oklahoma, No. 2 Texas, No. 3 Auburn, No. 4 South Carolina, No. 5 Ole Miss, No. 6 Louisville, No. 7 Missouri, No. 8 San Diego state, no. 9 Utah, no. 10 Kent State, No. 12 U.T. Martin and No. 13 Rider.

The top five schools will advance to the 2022 NCAA Division I Men’s Golf National Championship in Scottsdale, Arizona at Grayhawk Golf Club, May 27 to June 1.

Representing the Wildcats in the five-man scoring lineup are Tim TillmannsWill HopkinsLaurence SchiergenLuke O’Neill and Nicklaus Mason† This trusted line-up, which has been deployed six times this season, will face a challenging course.

“The course is very long and it’s not only important to drive it well, but you also have to be very precise in the approaches and be able to put the ball in small parts of the green,” said Robbins.

Cooper Schultz, a red shirt freshman from Andover, Kansas, also makes the trip as a deputy. Schultz has been pivotal to the Wildcats’ success this season, appearing in eight events.

As they have done all season, the Wildcats will lean on the leadership of veterans Tillmanns and Hopkins, who were staples in the scoring lineup.

Hopkins, the only senior, leads the team in equal or under-lap rounds this season with 17, en route to five top-20 finishes. Tillmanns, who already has post-season experience after competing as an individual in Stillwater’s Stillwater Regional last year, is coming out of a junior campaign in which he took four top-10 finishes.

The X factor for the Wildcats this spring was the play of Schiergen, a freshman who joined the team during the semester. He quickly adapted to collegiate golf, leading the team in 72.33 batting average. That figure is on track for ninth best in school history.

O’Neill is on a breakthrough season two that was highlighted by a first place tie at the Colleton River Collegiate. The win was the first individual championship by a Wildcat since 2019.

Mason is another young talent that has had a strong year. The freshman competed in nine events and achieved four top-20 finishes.

Based on the preparation that the entire team has put in, Robbins is confident that the boys are ready for this moment.

“The boys have done a good job this week balancing the finals and preparing for this event, and I know they are ready to go,” Robbins said.

The game in Norman kicks off with the first round on Monday, followed by Tuesday’s second round and Wednesday’s final round.

The state of Kansas has tee times that begin at 9:25 a.m. Monday. Fans can follow the entire event live on Golfstat.com.
