STOCKTON, California – The LSU men’s golf team had its 2021-22 season come to a close on Wednesday after finishing sixth in the NCAA Stockton Regional. The Tigers had a 16-under 848 (287, 275, 286) tournament score, narrowly missing out on the final spot by two strokes.

Arizona State (-38), Stanford (-28), BYU (-27), Oregon (-21), and Liberty (-18) were the five teams that advanced to the NCAA Championships beginning May 27 at the Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Drew Doyle followed up his strong second round with a four birdie, 2-under 70 final round that took his final tournament score to 8-under 208 and a tie for fifth. But he lost on a sudden death playoff hole with Washington’s RJ Manke with Manke parring No. 10 to advance to the individual portion of the NCAA Championships.

LSU counted Doyle’s round, and then the other four golfers – Garrett Barber, Cohen Trolio, Nicholas Arcement, Michael Sanders – all carded even par rounds. Sanders subbed in and played the third round in the spot of Trey Winstead, who had played the first two rounds.

Trolio earned a tie for 17th at his first ever regional with a 4-under 212; all three of his rounds counted towards LSU’s team score at the tournament. Arcement went under par for the tournament as a whole with a 1-under 215 to tie for 27th, and Barber finished tied for 34th at 2-over 218.

Arcement led the field with 39 pars in 54 holes played.
