  • Cowboys Claim Columbus Regional Title

With only the top five teams advancing, Auburn was outside the cutline early on the back nine Wednesday, but freshman Brandon Mancheno kept Auburn in fourth place for good with a birdie on the 18hole. He finished the tournament tied for 57th with a 10-over par 226 (77-78-71). Junior Garrett May carded the Bears' final counting score on Wednesday with a 1-over 73.

Deneen also climbed 20 places in the final round and tied for 26th with a 2-under 214 (75-71-68). Kuest birdied seven holes on the final day, including two of his last three holes, to help secure BYU's second-place finish.

Tech also sits one shot behind second place N.C. State and are tied for third with Duke at a total of fifteen under par. Top-ranked Oklahoma State didn't get the job done at a home NCAA Championship in 2011. Murlick's performance broke the Marquette record for a 54-hole performance at an NCAA regional.

"There are not many words for coming up one place short of qualifying for the NCAA Finals", said Penn State head coach Greg Nye. The Aggies won the tournament by nine strokes over Clemson, who shot an 846 overall and finished 18 under for the tournament. The Bruins shot a two over par 290 final round to finish with a final score of 866.

Spencer, a sophomore from Leawood, Kan., shot an 8-under-par 208 (69-69-70), his fourth top five finish of the season. The Sooners fired a 5-under-par 283. IL was second at the par-71, 7,364-yard layout at 852, while UNLV was third at 867.




Senior Jonathan Hardee and freshman Davis Shore are among the top-10 individuals after Monday's opening round of the 2018 NCAA Stockton Regional, which is being played on the par 72, 7,239-yard Reserve at Spanos Park layout. His season scoring average of 72.69 ranks 11th-best in school history while his current career scoring average of 73.82 ranks ninth. He now holds the Baylor school record with a 71.40 career stroke average across all collegiate rounds.

Closing strong has been a staple for IL in recent years and the lack there of is something head coach Mike Small says they'll have to work on moving forward, but that wasn't his main focus following the round. "We played well on the first day, but it was a struggle after that". We held our composure pretty well this week, shot even yesterday and 1-under today, which was nothing special, but not anything bad. "We can just go out there and show people we can play against them".

Frankly, it would've been a shock if Oklahoma State failed to reach the NCAA Championship.

The Tigers move on to the NCAA Championship for the seventh consecutive season, something that has only been accomplished by three other programs in the nation.
