Texas Wins Big 12 Men's Golf Title

Updated: Sunday, April 27 2014, 08:23 PM CDT

The No. 18 Texas Men’s Golf team fought off a one-stroke deficit after 54 holes to claim the 2014 Big 12 Conference Championship crown on Sunday afternoon at Whispering Pines Golf Club. Fueled by even-par performances in the final round by junior Brax McCarthy and freshman Gavin Hall, the Longhorns (287-285-295-291=1158, 6) fired a 3-over-par 291 to top the second-place Texas Tech Red Raiders (286-291-289-295=1161) by three strokes.
 
The win marks the Longhorns’ second-consecutive and fifth overall Big 12 Championship title. Texas has previously finished runner-up at Whispering Pines in both 2008 and 2012. In total, Texas has claimed 44 conference championships since 1927.
 
Men’s Golf becomes the sixth University of Texas program to capture a Big 12 Conference championship during the 2013-14 athletics season, joining Volleyball, Men’s Swimming and Diving, Women’s Swimming and Diving, Women’s Indoor Track and Field and Men’s Tennis.
 
Freshman Beau Hossler led the Longhorns over the 72-hole championship with a tie for third place at even-par 288 (72-69-73-74). It marks Hossler’s second-straight top-three finish of the season after previously recording a career-best tie for third place at the Western Intercollegiate (April 12-13).
 
Senior Toni Hakula (71-70-76-73=290) finished two strokes behind Hossler to tie for fifth overall. McCarthy (73-76-72-72) and fellow junior Kramer Hickok (71-70-74-78) also notched a pair of top-10 finishes by tying for ninth place at 5-over 293. Hall (73-76-76-72=297) rounded out the Texas squad in a tie for 21st place while making his Big 12 Championship debut along with Hossler and McCarthy.
 
Next up, Texas will compete in one of six NCAA Regional Championship events from May 15-17 at a site to be announced Monday, May 5 at 9 a.m. Central on Golf Channel.
