Texas faced an almost impossible task after falling back eight shots after the second round of the Big 12 Championship, but the Longhorns still closed strong in the final two rounds at Southern Hills Country Club.
In dramatic fashion, Texas came from behind after a slow start in the first round to win the Big 12 Championship for the second year in a row. Three individual top-10 finishes propelled the Longhorns to first place, eight strokes ahead of Baylor and Oklahoma State.
Texas’ senior linksman Doug Ghim put himself in exclusive company last weekend by finishing as the low amaetur at the Masters, thus sharing a distinction also once held by some of golf’s biggest names.
Texas wrapped up its last regular season tournament at the same course the PGA Tour started its season this year — the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, California. The Longhorns finished in seventh place with a three-round total of 874.
