OSU Golf Star Eugenio Chacarra Putting PGA Tour on Hold, Returning in 2022

A huge — HUGE — boost for OSU men’s golf.



OSU men’s golf coach Alan Bratton got a huge boost to his team’s prospects for next season on Wednesday as Eugenio Chacarra, the No. 2 player in all of college golf, announced that he will put the PGA Tour on hold and return to Oklahoma State as a super-senior.

Chacarra, a senior who was recently named to the Haskins Award Watch List, has a pair of wins to his name this spring along with top-five finishes at the Haskins Award Invitational and the Gators Invitational. With a top-five ranking, he’s passing on the opportunity to receive a Korn Ferry membership along with exemptions into full-field events for the next year.

“When I came in 2020 to Oklahoma State, I committed to play for the Pokes until 2023,” he said in an announcement on Twitter. “As everyone knows, I am proud and happy to call OSU my team and my family. Being ranked in the top five in PGA University with only a few tournaments to go obviously makes my decision to leave OSU especially tempting. But honoring my word to my coaches who have done so much for me is so much more important.”

Chacarra this spring has played 18 rounds of golf and finished 13 of them shooting in the 60s. At various points this season he has been ranked as the No. 1 player in men’s college golf.

“What a great day it is for us,” Bratton said. “It’s huge for our program to have a player like him decide to come back, especially in the environment we have today. … It’s been a pleasure to coach him the last few years. Really excited to be able to do it again.”
