Oklahoma Captures NCAA Men’s Golf Championship

NCAA team match-play has concluded for 2017, and this year’s winner comes out of the Big 12.

 
Behind an incredible back-nine effort by Brad Dalke, Oklahoma defeated defending champion Oregon 3.5-1.5 to win the 2017 NCAA Men’s Golf Championship.

It is Oklahoma’s first title since 1989.


Bullets

  • Road Traveled: Oklahoma made the finals by defeating Baylor and then Illinois.
  • Quick Score: Oklahoma, the tournament’s #2 seed, took the first point of the match when the Sooners’ Blaine Hale upset Oregon super-freshman Norman Xiong 4&3.
  • Big Match: The marquee match between Oklahoma’s Brad Dalke and Oregon’s Sulman Raza was close until Dalke won three of four holes from 12-15. Dalke won the match 2&1.
  • Sixty%: Oklahoma won three of the five matches.
