Mandur has been a consistent force for the Utes this season, shooting a career-low 71.6 strokes per round in 2021. The Mill Bay, British Columbia, native has played in 28 rounds of golf this season with 17 rounds of par or better.
Out of Utah's nine tournaments they competed in as a team, he recorded seven top-35 finishes, including three in the top-15. His lowest 54-hole score came at the NCAA Regionals where he shot a 207 (-6) to tie for fourth overall and claim his spot in the NCAA Championships.
Mandur also tied for eighth overall among 87 golfers at the Redhawk Invitational in March. His lowest 18-hole score was integral in the Utes winning the Pizza Hut Pat Hicks Invitational in February, shooting a 67 in the first round, which ties for the third-lowest 18-hole score on the team this season.
NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS HISTORY
Mandur is the third player for the Utes to qualify as an individual for the NCAA Championships since 1990 and the second in the past three seasons.
He was Utah's highest individual finisher at an NCAA Regional after tying for fourth in Cle Elum after Dustin Pimm (tied for fifth) and Kyler Dunkle (tied for sixth), also qualified for the NCAA Championships in 2006 and 2019, respectively. Dunkle tied for 28th overall at the NCAA Championships in 2019.
