LA QUINTA, CA (February 21, 2018) - Oklahoma State's men's golf team posted a 284 on Wednesday to earn its fourth victory of the year at The Prestige at PGA West at PGA West's Greg Norman Course.
The No. 1-ranked Cowboys, who shared the top spot on the leaderboard with Oregon entering Wednesday's second round, used their even-par score to finish at 1-under 567, edging Pepperdine by a shot at the par-71, 7,100-yard layout. Oregon was third at 571.
