OOLTEWAH, Tenn. – Anyone who follows college golf knows that Oklahoma State has appeared in more NCAA Men’s Division I Championships than any other program in the country.

The Cowboys completed their practice round Monday in preparation for the Tuesday start of this year’s national championship at The Honors Course just outside of Chattanooga, Tenn. It will be the 64th consecutive year the boys from Stillwater, Okla., have closed out a season vying for a national title, of which they’ve won nine.

Who is next in line behind Okie State in total NCAA finals appearances?

That would be the Longhorns of Texas, who this week go at it for the 56th time, while Southern Cal is playing in its 51st.
