The No. 20 Texas men’s team finished second in the Bayou City Intercollegiate Championship on Sunday afternoon at the Golf Club of Houston. Texas followed host Houston the entire weekend, ending the competition eight strokes behind Houston’s -31 at -23 and ten strokes ahead of its nearest competitor, South Carolina. 

Junior Kramer Hickock led three other top-10 Longhorns, reaching a career-best score of -7 at 209 to tie for second place with two other players. Freshman Gavin Hall and senior Toni Hakula four-way tied for fifth place at 210, followed by freshman Beau Hossler’s 212 for 10th. Junior Brax McCarthy rounded out the squad tied for 46th place at 220, followed by redshirt sophomore Will Griffin who finished at 60th with a 223 in individual play. 

Host Houston defended both team and individual honors well this weekend, with Roman Robledo winning the individual prize and leading his team to a first-place finish.

The Longhorns next compete March 7-9 at the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters in Las Vegas.
