SAN FRANCISCO - Five Pac-12 Men's Golf teams and two individuals advanced through six regional competitions and onto the 2022 NCAA Championships hosted by ARIZONA STATE, highlighted by team victories for the ARIZONA and ASU programs.

The five advancing teams - Arizona, Arizona State, OREGON, STANFORD and UTAH - mark the most for the Pac-12 since 2016, and trail only the SEC's seven.

The top five teams, and top individual finisher not from an advancing team, from each of the six regional sites advanced to the 2022 NCAA Men's Golf Championships hosted by Arizona State at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz., from May 27-June 1.

2022 NCAA Men's Golf Championships - Pac-12 Qualifiers
ARIZONA - 1st at Bryan Regional
ARIZONA STATE - 1st at Stockton Regional
STANFORD - 2nd at Stockton Regional
OREGON - 4th at Stockton Regional
UTAH - 5th at Norman Regional

Carson Barry, OREGON STATE - T-5th, Bryan Regional low individual (won playoff)

The Wildcats (13-under 851; 5-shot win) and Sun Devils (38-under 826; 10-shot win) rolled to victories at the Bryan and Stockton Regionals, respectively. It marks ASU's 11th NCAA appearance in 13 seasons of the Match Play format (since 2009) and first regional crown since 2016, while it is Arizona's first trip since 2011 and first regional win since 2006.

Stanford qualified for its first NCAA Championship since winning the national title in 2019, Oregon will make its first trip since 2018, and Utah advanced for the first time since 1988 and just the second time in the past 57 seasons.

OREGON STATE's Carson Barry and WASHINGTON's RJ Manke both won playoffs to advance to the NCAA Championships, giving the Pac-12 two of the six regional-site individual qualifiers.

The 30 NCAA Championships qualifying teams will compete in 72 holes of stroke play, crowning an individual national champion at that junction, with the top eight teams advancing to a match-play tournament.

Since adjusting to a team match-play format in 2009, the Pac-12 is tied with the Big 12 with a national-best 23 team match-play participants. The Conference has produced a title match participant in four of the last six events, including a pair of national champions (Oregon 2016, Stanford 2019), and 10 semifinalists.
