OU Wins Big 12 Men’s Golf Championship; KU 6th, K-State 9th

TRINITY, Texas
– Oklahoma shot a 282 (-14) during the final round of the 2022 Big 12 Men’s Golf Championship to record a total score of 850 (-14) and claim the program’s third Big 12 title and first since 2018.

The Championship was adjusted to a 54-hole format due to a weather suspension on the first day at Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity, Texas at the 7,434-yard, par-72 course.

Trailing by one stroke entering the day, Oklahoma got off to a blistering start in the third round to lead by seven at the turn. The Sooners survived a late push from Texas, who briefly took the lead before OU closed strong to bring home the consensus No. 1 team in the country’s 18th conference championship.

Oklahoma State saved its best round of the Championship for last, scoring a 282 (-6) on the final 18 holes to finish in second place. The Longhorns were paired with the Sooners during the final round and finished in third place after three birdies on the 18th hole gave them a round score of 286 (-11) with a total of 853 (-11). Texas Tech finished fourth after scoring a 54-hole total of 861 (-3).

The 11 strokes separating the top four teams tie for the fewest total among the top four finishers since the 1999 and 2001 Championships. The three strokes separating the top three finishing teams tie for the second-fewest in Big 12 Championship history. Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas also had three strokes separating one through three in 2002 (UT – 850, OSU – 851, OU – 853).

Ludvig Aberg became the second Red Raider to win the individual title and the first since Chris Ward in 2010. Aberg shot a 69 (-8) in the final round and closed with a total of 208 (-8), two strokes ahead of Oklahoma’s Chris Gotterup 210 (-6). Oklahoma State’s Bo Jin and Texas’ Cole Hammer tied for third, both recording a total of 211 (-5). Jin had the lowest score of the day with a 68 (-5) in the third round.

Texas and Oklahoma were the only two teams to place all five golfers inside the final top 20.

As the Big 12 Champion, Oklahoma receives the league’s automatic selection into the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship. As the conference medalist, Aberg receives an automatic invitation to NCAA Regionals if not selected on a participating team. The full field including selections and regional site locations will be announced on Wednesday, May 4 at 3 p.m. CT on the Golf Channel.

Four Big 12 teams currently rank inside the top 10 of the latest Golfstat rankings: No. 1 Oklahoma, No. 2 Oklahoma State, No. 5 Texas Tech and No. 9 Texas.
