Cowboy Golf Finishes Third At Big 12 Championship
OSU entered the day tied with Texas for first place and the Cowboys' starting five made the turn at five-over-par to remain in contention. However, OSU stumbled on the back nine with a combed 18-over-par total, including a 12-over stretch covering the final four holes.
Individually, a pair of Cowboys posted top-10 finishes with junior Alex Norén tying for third and freshman Casey Wittenberg coming in eighth.
Norén entered the day one-under before a final-round 75 gave him a 214 total and his fourth consecutive top 10, while Wittenberg posted the team's low score of the day with a 71 to earn his fourth top 10 in seven career starts with a 217 total.
Freshman Tyler Leon recorded his sixth career top-20 finish, tying for 16th place with a 222, 12-over total.
Sophomore Chris Clarke carded a final-round 75 to finish at 224 and tied with eight other players for 20th place, while fellow sophomore Zack Robinson came in with his second 77 of the tournament for a 227 total, tying him for 36th place.
OSU will return to action on May 15 when it travels to Ardmore, Okla., for The Maxwell.
