NCAA men's golf: Oklahoma State wins again, claims the Louisville Regional

By

Oklahoma State, the nation’s No. 1 men’s golf team and the favorite to win the NCAA title, has won again this season.

The Cowboys shot 7-under, including 9-under on the back nine, on Wednesday at the University of Louisville Golf Club and claimed the Louisville Regional title at 14-under, winning by four shots over Auburn.

Baylor, which also went 7-under on Wednesday, finished third at 7-under. Host Louisville was fourth at 7-over while North Florida was the final team to advance out of the regional, finishing at 8-over, two shots ahead of West Virginia.

Also among those failing to advance was Iowa State but the Cyclones’ Tripp Kinney won medalist honors in this regional and as a result, he will head to the NCAAs as an individual.
