Big 12 golf: UT edges OSU, OU

HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Texas held off an Oklahoma State charge in the Big 12 men’s golf championship on Wednesday.

The Longhorns posted a closing 288 to finish at 859, 19-over par, at the par-70, 6,916-yard Prairie Dunes Country Club.

OSU finished with a 286 tally during its third round to stand at 863 for the event, which was shortened to 54 holes after Tuesday’s round was canceled due to inclement weather. The Cowboys trailed the Longhorns by six shots entering the day.

Oklahoma was third after carding a final round 280 to finish 10 strokes off the lead. It’s the best showing for OU in the tournament since winning the conference title in 2006.

UT’s Brandon Stone came away with medalist honors, finishing at even-par 210 after closing with a 73.  OSU’s Talor Gooch finished alone in second place, while teammate Ian Davis tied for fifth place. Between them in third was OU’s Abraham Ancer who shot an even par 70 for a 5-over 215 total.
