Along with the Jaguars, the 15-team field included host Pepperdine, Boise State, BYU, Fresno State, Iowa, Lipscomb, Mississippi State, Northwestern, Oregon, Sam Houston State, San Diego, San Diego State, USC, and Winthrop. Six of the 15 teams are ranked in the top 50 in the nation.

Teams played 36 holes in a shotgun format for rounds one and two on the par-72, 6,992-yard course and Augusta was in sixth heading into the final day and remained there with a 291 (+3) for their low round of the event.

Senior Maverick Antcliff carded a top-five finish with a 69 (-3) in round three – the low round on the event for the Jags. Antcliff had a birdie on the par five sixth hole, before posting three on the back nine.

Senior Robin Petersson finished inside the top 20 in a tie for 17th with a round-two 72 (E), his second best of the tourney. Junior Jake Marriott fired a 74 (+2) to finish tied for 26th and junior Viktor Edin took 67th while junior Cooper Brown placed 76th overall.
