Since the start of the spring season, winning has become a habit for the No. 3 Texas men’s golf team. 

The Longhorns shot 26-under par at the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters on Wednesday to earn their second-straight team win. 

The team finished 10 strokes ahead of the second-place team, No. 23 Oklahoma, and beat nine ranked teams in total, including conference rivals No. 11 Texas Tech and No. 22 Oklahoma State.

“This was a great win coming off some positive momentum we gained last week in Florida,” head coach John Fields said.

Following the lead of sophomore Beau Hossler, who finished in the top two on the individual leaderboard for the second-consecutive week, every Texas player finished under par.

Hossler shot a 9-under 207 over the three days, with senior Kramer Hickok not far behind at 8-under par for a fourth-place individual finish. Freshmen Scottie Scheffler (-5) and Doug Ghim (-1) and sophomore Gavin Hall (-1) rounded out the team.

The Longhorns take the course again on March 21 in Greensboro, Georgia, for the Linger Longer Invitational.
