The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men's golf team concluded their run through the NCAA Championship tied for 12th place as the Stags played their lowest-scoring round on the final day with a 298.

SCIAC Newcomer of the Year Harry Brenner led the Stags on the final day with a +1. Last year's individual runner-up sophomore Alex Wrenn finished a +2  and was tied for sixth in total birdies, converting 12 across the four days. CMS returns all five starters next season and will again look to make a run at the SCIAC title and NCAA Championships. 

Conor Rooney from Pomona-Pitzer competed as an individual and ended day four in a four-way tie
for 37
th with a final overall score of 302 after he shot a 77 in day four. Rooney started the tournament with back to back scores of 75 (+3) in the first two rounds, which sent him into a playoff with two other golfers competing for the final two spots to advance to the final two rounds of the NCAA Tournament.

Alec Spencer 
from La Verne also competed as an individual and missed the cut by one stroke after day 2 of the NCAA Division III National Championships. The top 18 teams and top six individuals not on those teams move on to the final two days. He saved par on the final hole and finished tied for 37th with a two-round total score of 151 (73-78).

Wittenberg University won the national title after finishing two strokes ahead of Guilford College at +28 strokes, shooting below 300 in all four days.
