Cowboy Golf Team Earns No. 1 Seed in Columbus Regional

Despite a recent second place finish in the Big 12 championship, the Oklahoma State men’s golf team was tabbed as the No. 1 seed at the Columbus, Ohio NCAA regional this week.

The Cowboys are the top seed of a loaded 13-team field that includes Penn State, Illinois, Northwestern, Michigan State, Texas Tech, Wake Forest, Tennessee, Louisville, Jacksonville, Yale, UNLV and Cleveland State.

It’s a tough draw for Oklahoma State, specifically against No. 2 Illinois and No. 3 Texas Tech, but recent history is on its side. The Pokes have won two consecutive regional titles, most recently taking home a win in Austin, Texas, last year, and boast an NCAA-leading 12 regional titles.

They have also made the NCAA Championship in 70 of the last 71 years. This year’s NCAAs are at Karsten Creek in Stillwater and should feature a Pokes squad looking for their first title since 2006.

OSU set a school record earlier this year by winning seven tournaments in a row before Arizona State clipped them at the ASU Thunderbird Invitational and OU got them by eight strokes at the Big 12 Championship at Southern Hills in Tulsa.

Play will begin May 14 and run through May 16 at Ohio State’s scarlet course.
