“This year was great, but I want to keep improving,” Cooper said. “I want to be First Team All-American again. I want to be First Team All-Big 12. I want to get Big 12 Player of the Year, and we, of course, want to win National Championships.”
For a college athlete, there is no greater feeling than winning a national championship, just as nothing compares to the sting of losing one. The Texas Longhorns men’s golf team felt the latter on Wednesday.
One started at the front of the pack, only a couple of shots off the lead. The other barely made the final round of the tournament, winning a coveted spot in an 11-person playoff to finalize the top 30.
While the top three players on the women’s golf team were preparing for a tournament at Augusta National, the rest of the team traveled to the not-as-renowned Lantana Golf Club in Argyle, Texas, for the Bruzzy Challenge.
