NCAA men's golf: Texas A&M looks to claim Pullman Regional

By

Texas A&M went 12-under in Day 2 of the Pullman Regional to snag a three-shot lead going into Wednesday’s final round.

Oklahoma is in second after going 10-under. Georgia Tech, the No. 2 team in the Golfweek/Sagarin collegiate men’s golf rankings, also went 10-under and is in third place, four shots back.

BYU went 9-under and is in fourth, six shots back.

If you’re sensing a theme here, you’re right. The course was to be had on Tuesday as the top five teams in the regional went a combined 52-under par.

The team currently holding the fifth spot, Colorado State, got it to 13-under at one point, before finishing 11-under, getting the Rams to 12-under overall for the tournament, five shots ahead of sixth-place UCLA. Colorado State holds, for now, the fifth and final spot with hopes of advancing.
