Still feeling the sting of the cancellation of the 2020 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Golf Championship, the tournament hosts gathered at Grayhawk Golf Club for a special event to, first, honor what didn’t happen, and second, celebrate the next two championships still to come.
It was a sign of good things to come for team Georgia when they bounced back from a stinging loss to New York to upset an undefeated California team to capture the Wanamaker Division and a birth into the championship match.
