Oklahoma State remains comfy No. 1 in Bushnell/Golfweek D-I Coaches Poll

Oklahoma State, which earned its 11th national title this spring, remains No. 1 in the Bushnell/Golfweek Coaches Poll for the ninth straight ranking.

Behind the Cowboys, though, there has been some early-season jockeying.

Duke has jumped from No. 9 to No. 2 thanks to a strong fall thus far. Georgia Tech has moved up a spot to No. 3. Pepperdine and SMU have also rocketed into the top 10.

There’s already been plenty of intrigue.

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