For the men and women, Golfweek is recognizing a 2024 All-NCAA Golf Championship match play team, featuring five players who were stellar during match play and an MVP of the bunch.

Men’s All-Match Play team

Luke Clanton, So., Florida State: Clanton was stellar for the Seminoles, and even with a 2-1 record, his importance can’t be overstated.

JM Butler, Sr., Auburn: The senior ended his career with the clinching point. He didn’t trail during match play the entire week.

Adam Wallin, Sr., Ohio State: Went 1-1, but took down Gordon Sargent and then took Haskins winner Jackson Koivun to 21 holes.
