Final results

Oklahoma won the Alamo Invitational on Tuesday, thanks in large part to a final-round 12-under 276 at Briggs Ranch Golf Club in San Antonio, Texas.

The Sooners outscored every other team by seven shots in the final round. They outscored runner-up LSU by eight shots to break out of a tie with the Tigers and win the title. Oklahoma’s 24-under 840 gave the team, No. 11 in Golfweek’s rankings, its first victory this season.

Oklahoma broke two team records and two individual records at the Alamo. The Sooners’ final-round score broke the previous school record of 278 (-10), posted Sunday in the first round of the tournament. Oklahoma’s 24-under team total was eight shots lower than the former 54-hole record, set last year at the 2012 Alamo Invitational.

Freshman Alexandra Kaui posted 7-under 65 in the final round to break 18-hole record a 10-under 206 total to tie teammate Chirapat Jao-Javanil 54-hole record.

Kaui was runner-up to LSU senior Lindsay Gahm, who posted 11-under 205. It’s the first title of Gahm’s career. She birdied three of her final five holes to pull ahead of Kaui for the victory.
