Nate Gray

Golf

Nate Gray became the first Cal Lutheran individual men’s golfer to win a SCIAC title, doing so at the 2017 SCIAC Championships. The senior shot an even-par 216 over 54 holes to share the title in his final collegiate round for CLU. On Sunday morning, Gray led the way with a two-under 70, which included two birdies and 16 pars, to jumpstart his weekend. In round two, he shot a 74 with an eagle on hole three and a dozen pars. Finally, in his last collegiate round for CLU, the senior scored an even-par 72 in one of the most exciting final holes in recent history to share the top honor. Sitting at two-over with a trio of birdies under his belt through 15 holes, Gray bounced back from a bogie on 16 to card another birdie on 17 and went on to shoot an eagle on the 18th hole in front of the entire group of SCIAC golfers and all remaining spectators in attendance. His final shot was a 35-foot putt that sent his Kingsmen and Regals teammates into celebration moments before everyone learned of his title. Gray is a four-year letter-winner for the Kingsmen who has been an integral part of the program throughout his career.
