3. Texas

2011-12 Golfweek/Sagarin rank: 2

Go-to guy: Jordan Spieth

Season outlook: The Longhorns return four of five players who participated in the Longhorns’ victory at last year’s NCAA Championship. It’s not certain how much longer sophomore Jordan Spieth will be a Longhorn, though. Spieth, a first-team All-American as a freshman, is entered in PGA Tour Q-School and could leave at mid-season. Beau Hossler, who gained fame at this year’s U.S. Open, is expected to arrive in Austin in January, though, which could help soften Spieth’s potential departure. Texas lost first-team All-American Dylan Frittelli from last year’s team, but his fellow South African, Brandon Stone, enters as one of the nation’s top freshmen. Stone is No. 30 in the R&A World Amateur Golf Rankings.

Texas also returns third-team All-American Julio Vegas, and NCAA Championship participants Cody Gribble and Toni Hakula. The Longhorns won eight times last season.
