STOCKTON, California – The LSU men’s golf team will start its chase for NCAA glory when the Tigers tee off in the NCAA Stockton Regional at 10 a.m. CT on Monday morning.

Three rounds of stroke play start on Monday at The Reserve at Spanos Park, a 7,315 par 72 course with the top five teams advancing to the NCAA Championship.

The Tigers are the No. 4 seed in a field of 14 teams that include (in seeding order) Arizona State, Washington, Stanford, Oregon, Nevada, Liberty, BYU, UAB, Houston, UC Davis, Denver, Abilene Christian, and Weber State.

LSU’s starting lineup consists of Garrett Barber, Trey Winstead, Nicholas Arcement, Cohen Trolio, and Drew Doyle while Michael Sanders is listed as the team’s substitute player. The starting five is paired with Oregon and Nevada for Monday’s first round and will tee off from the 10th hole.

Winstead leads the lineup in regional experience as this will be his third time representing the Tigers in the NCAA regional round. Arcement, Barber, and Doyle will play regional golf for the second time in their careers after making their debuts last year while freshman Trolio is set to get his first NCAA start on Monday morning.

Trolio is fresh off the first SEC honor of his career as he was named to the All-SEC freshman team on Friday afternoon. Trolio shot a 71.37 average throughout the season and notched three top ten finishes, including a share of 3rd place in the very competitive 2022 SEC Championship with a 4-under 206 (67, 70, 69).
