FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Following back-to-back tournament wins to wrap up the fall season, head coach Joey Marino and the Nova Southeastern men’s golf team are itching to return to action, with the start of the 2022 spring campaign officially underway Feb. 7 at the Matlock Invitational in Lakeland, Fla.
In all, the Sharks will compete in five regular-season tournaments this spring before teeing it up at the SSC Championship from Apr. 10-12.
NSU started relatively slowly out the gate during the fall, yet led by the play of 2021 Sunshine State Conference Freshman of the Year Javier Calles, closed the first half of the year on fire after cruising to commanding victories at both the Miami Intercollegiate and McDonough Cup. The Sharks won the fall’s final two events by a combined 20 strokes, as Calles picked up a pair of individual titles in the process. In addition to Calles’ success, the Sharks earned contributions from a bevy of players including Jonny Cachon and freshman Josep Serra. Together, the two registered four Top-5 finishes in four tournaments, with Cachon twice finishing runner-up.
After opening the spring at Florida Southern’s Matlock Invitational (Feb. 7-8), NSU will play in the Saint Leo Invitational on Feb. 21-22. To begin the month of March, the Sharks will travel to Melbourne, Fla. for Florida Tech’s Panther Invitational (Mar. 6-8), which will then lead into Valdosta State’s Southeastern Collegiate (Mar. 14-15), held at Kinderlou Forest Golf Club, the site of the NCAA South Super Regional.
NSU is set to round out the regular season at Barry’s Battle at the Shores from Apr. 4-5, as postseason play opens up in mid-April in Lakeland, Fla. at the SSC Championship.
The NCAA South Super Regional is scheduled for May 5-7, with the NCAA DII National Championship slated for May 16-20 at TPC Michigan in Detroit.
