Men's countdown: No. 19 Oklahoma
Friday, August 16, 2013
We are counting down the top 30 men's teams heading into the fall college season.

2012-13 Golfweek ranking: 24
Go-to guy: Senior Michael Schoolcraft
Season outlook: The Sooners lose their top two scoring leaders in Abraham Ancer and Will Kropp from last season's team that finished 11th at the NCAA Championship for the second consecutive year. But head coach Ryan Hybl is still optimistic heading into the fall.
Senior Michael Schoolcraft, sophomore Beau Titsworth and junior Charlie Saxon should give Oklahoma a formidable 1-2-3 punch. Schoolcraft and Titsworth competed in all 12 events last season and combined for 13 top-20 finishes, and all three players posted scoring averages of 73.43 or below.
Added to the mix will be a pair of freshmen, Max McGreevy and Emilio Maurer, both of whom Hybl expects to contribute right away. McGreevy, an Oklahoma native, finished second at the Southwestern Amateur and has won the Oklahoma Class 6A high school championship the past two seasons. Maurer is a member of the Mexican national team and was top 10 at the Japan World Cup.
