Full results

California notched its second victory of the fall, winning the Jack Nicklaus Invitational by 19 shots over Oklahoma.

The Golden Bears, who won 12 times last season in 14 stroke-play starts, carded a final-round 3-under 281 Monday at The Ohio State University Scarlet Course in Columbus, Ohio, to finish at 10-under 842 and complete the wire-to-wire victory. California won its previous tournament, the St. Mary's Invitational, by 30 shots.

Cal senior Brandon Hagy won his first tournament of the season, recording rounds of 71-67-69 for a 6-under 207 total, one shot better than Kent State's Taylor Pendrith, who won the Porter Cup over the summer. Hagy had finished second and third, respectively, in his previous two tournaments this fall.

The Golden Bears boasted two other players in the top 10: Pace Johnson (third, 4-under 209) and Shotaro Ban (sixth, 212).

The Sooners, who were coming off a season-opening victory at the Golfweek Conference Challenge, had all five players finish in the top 20, but just one in the top 10. Freshman Max McGreevy shot 1-over 214 to place eighth while Michael Schoolcraft and Beau Titsworth both tied for 11th for Oklahoma, which shot 9-over 861 for the tournament.

Oklahoma State finished third at 11-over 863 behind T-4 performances from Ian Davis and Wyndham Clark. Kent State and Purdue tied for fourth at 25 over.
