The Virginia Tech Hokies’ golf team had somewhat of a close call on advancing out of the Auburn Regional the NCAA Championship in Hutchinson, Kansas but strong second and third rounds made it quite easy for the Hokies. The man who led the impact was unsurprisingly the Hokies’ star golfer, Scott Vincent. Scott Vincent has been one of the best golfers the Hokies have had and seems likely to join former Hokies Brendon De Jonge and Johnson Wagner on the PGA Tour.
However, Scott Vincent will be focused for now on trying to win an individual NCAA title in Hutchinson, Kansas while also trying to boost the chances of the Hokies winning a national title. Scott Vincent has been dominant in many tournaments as Vincent had 3 victories in the fall which set a new Virginia Tech record for the most individual victories. Scott Vincent also holds the Virginia Tech career record for the lowest single round score average which shows the success Vincent has had in Blacksburg.
Scott Vincent is only a junior so he will get another shot at winning an individual national title next year but Scott Vincent will have a good chance to win a national title. Vincent proved in his strong second and third rounds at the Auburn Regional that he is playing like the guy who won three tournaments in the fall. Scott Vincent will not be one of the favorites for the individual title but he is definitely a guy that is seen as a contender to win a national title. Scott Vincent is Virginia Tech’s most successful golfer of all-time and is definitely ready to make a run at a national title.
