SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — On a day when their former player captured his first Green Jacket in record style, the University of Texas went low to win big at Pasatiempo.
The Longhorns shot 10-under in their final round of the Western Intercollegiate to win by 14 over Oregon after trailing Stanford by five entering Sunday. The team received an individual title from their freshman Scottie Scheffler, who shot 66-68-67 to win by three over California's Shotaro Ban.
Matching Scheffler's 67 on Sunday was sophomore Gavin Hall, who grabbed a top-10 with a tied-for-seventh finish. 2014 U.S. Amateur Public Links runner-up Doug Ghim and No. 1-ranked amateur in the world Beau Hossler both carded 68s to add on to the Longhorns' spectacular final-round.
Oregon used an impressive two-over day to sneak past Pac-12 conference rival Stanford into second place, with special thanks to sophomore Zach Foushee's Sunday-low 65. His teammate Brandon McIver secured the lowest round of the event in Saturday's second round, posting 63 at the Alister MacKenzie-designed course.
Stanford settled for third place after leading entering the final day, getting top-10 finishes from both Maverick McNealy (T4) and Viraat Badhwar (6).
Maybe the hottest team heading into the tournament was Arizona State, having won five of the six events they had played in entering this weekend. Juniors Jon Rahm and Max Rottluff led the Sun Devils to a fourth place finish, eight strokes behind Stanford.
