Oklahoma wins NCAA golf title, beating OR 3-1-1

Oklahoma wins NCAA golf title, beating OR 3-1-1

Facing a vocal crowd that had come out strong for their opponents, the University of Oklahoma knocked off the University of IL to advance to the final of the NCAA Championship at Rich Harvest Farms. To get there, the No. 5 Ducks had to defeat the No. 4 seed Oklahoma State Cowboys and the No. 1 seed Vanderbilt Commodores back-to-back on Tuesday.

The Sooners, who are seeded No. 2 in match play, qualified for the title match by way of a 3-1-1 victory over No. 3 IL.

The Sooners got off to a quick start, with their first two players getting off to quick starts. Defending national champion OR is riding deja vu. 2 seed, upended Baylor 3-2 in the quarterfinals to open the day before topping third-seeded IL 3-1-1 in the afternoon.

In the semifinals, Norman Xiong won his match 3 and 2 over Patrick Martin, and Wyndham Clark won his match 4 and 3 over Will Gordon.

In the morning quarterfinals, OR and Oklahoma State split the first four points in their match. Raza won the 16th to extend the match, and Dalke ended it a hole later. The Trojans were one of the favorites entering the tournament, but they stumbled in Monday's final round of stroke play - barely hanging on to a spot in match play - before netting only one win against the Illini. The Sooners completed their semifinal triumph when Rylee Reinertson won the third pairing, 3 & 1, as he clinched with a win on the 17th.

The Sooners trailed in all five of their matches through 10 holes of their quarterfinal match against Baylor on Tuesday morning at Rich Harvest Farms until they rallied, with Brad Dalke finishing off the Bears with a par on the 19th hole. The two golfers went back and forth on the remainder of the back nine, but Reinertson won hole No. 17 to restore his 3-up lead and send his team to the title match. The Bears won the first two points as Cooper Dossey was a 1-up victor in the opening pairing and Braden Bailey won 2 & 1 in the second.

Small's squad faces Oklahoma after the Sooners pulled out a thrilling 3-2 win over Baylor.

Can six-time match-play participant IL, the school that has advanced more times than any program since match play was adopted in 2009, finally win the title? They fell to Texas past year in the quarterfinals.

"What a great day for Oklahoma golf", Hybl said.

Junior Rylee Reinertson's 3&1 victory over Michael Feagles finalized Oklahoma's win over IL.

The championship match is Wednesday.
