Oklahoma State, Oklahoma dominate in Bushnell/Golfweek D-I Coaches Poll

The state of Oklahoma continues to dominate.

Oklahoma State, which earned its 11th national title this spring, began the 2018-19 season a unanimous No. 1 in the Bushnell/Golfweek Coaches Poll. The Cowboys lost that unanimous label in the release of Friday’s updated rankings but have kept the No. 1 spot for the eighth straight ranking.

Right behind is rival Oklahoma, the 2017 NCAA champions, as the Sooners sit at No. 2 with the aid of four first-place votes. Fifth-ranked Tennessee, which has won its first two events of the season, earned three first-place votes.

Here are the polls for Divisions I, II, and III, NAIA and NJCAA Divisions I and II:
