Today the Texas A&M Mens Golf Team accomplished something no other A&M mens team has been able to do in over 70 years. The Aggie were crowned National Champions in dramatic fashion after 18th hole heroics by Senior Bronson Burgoon.
Bronson Burgoon was 4up through 13 holes when the tide started to turn in the Razorback's favor. Bronson played the 14th through 17th holes 3 over par to lose his commanding 4up lead. Going into the 18th hole all square the momentum was in Arkansas Andrew Landry's favor. Landry stepped up to the 18th hole and stripped a perfect drive down the middle of the fairway.
Burgoon was feeling the pressure after losing his commanding lead and his tee-shot was sliced out to the right, but found a good lie in the rough. Landry then proceeded to leave his approach shot short of the hole and it spun off the front of the green.
Burgoon took little time after Landry's approach and hit the biggest shot of his life. Burgoon stuck his approach within conceding distance. Bronson's birdie on the 18th hole solidified the championship for the Aggies for the first time in their 28 appearances.
