UTEP’s Charles Corner prepares for NCAA Championships

UTEP golfer Charles Corner is heading to the NCAA Championships this week.

Corner was the top individual player who did not play for a qualifying team at last week’s regional tournament in Stockton, California. That enabled him to become the first UTEP golfer to qualify for nationals in 14 years.

Corner put together three solid rounds at regionals and held off tough competition in the final round to book his spot at the NCAA Championships.

“I’d say, you know, without a doubt it was very exciting. That was kind of a goal of mine to make it to the national championships,” said Corner. “So, you know, being right in contention in that final round and having a good round going was super exciting.”

He tied for third at the regional level, but is looking for more at nationals.

Corner believes he knows what area needs to be improved in his game in order to have a shot at the title.

“I would say I am still trying to work on my short game. That’s something I did very well in Stockton. That’s what made me play as well as I did. If I get my short game to or at a similar level, I’d say that I have a very good chance to play there well and hopefully win,” Corner said.

The National Championship Tournament will be hosted at Oklahoma State University from May 25-30.
