Six of the top men’s and women’s teams in college golf, competed for the Stephens Cup, named in honor of the late Augusta National Chairman, Jackson T. Stephens.
The Stephens Cup Tournament Committee is committed to expanding opportunities in the game of golf and fostering inclusion among talented golfers. Special invitations were sent to the top players from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and U.S. Military Service Academies (Army, Navy, Air Force).
