Oklahoma State’s non-revenue sports frequently don’t receive enough recognition or coverage, especially in the offseason. At PFB, we have recently renewed our focus on providing you a good look at all OSU athletics across the board. This summer has seen multiple achievements by both OSU teams and alumni. Here are some of the highlights of OSU’s smaller sport teams from the past week.

Baseball

Equestrian

OSU has announced its equestrian schedule for 2017. Can you imagine if this was a football schedule?

Golf

Three former Cowboys recently played in the John Deere Classic at TCP Deere Run over the weekend. Morgan Hoffmann and Kevin Tway finished the tournament tied for 12th. Hoffman shot a final-round 64 to propel him into the top 15, which included this birdie on 16.

Tway provided one of the best rounds of the entire tournament on Friday when he shot a 63 and had seven straight birdies.

Charles Howell III opened the tournament with a bogey-free 63 and was tied for the lead after the first 18 holes. Howell finished the tournament with a final round of 70, putting him at 19th overall. He’ll play in this week’s Open Championship.

All three of those golfer have had terrific summers. Howell is No. 17 in the FedEx Cup race while Tway is No. 57 and Hoffmann is No. 67. Rickie Fowler, who is No. 6 in the FedEx Cup rankings, recently finished tied for 9th in the AAM Scottish Open at seven under.

His next tournament is also at the Open at Royal Birkdale where he heads in as one of the favorites. Keep an eye out on the site for a preview.

Karsten Creek received some recognition this past week by being named one of the nation’s top public courses. Kirsten Creek is set to host the 2018 Men’s and Women’s NCAA Championships, the NCAA Men’s Regional in 2021 and the NCAA Women’s Regional in 2022.

A trio of Cowgirls were recently named All-American Scholars by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association last Wednesday.
