The two-time defending champions, the Texas A&M Aggies, won its third straight Louisiana Classics title at Oakbourne Country Club in Lafayette, La.

The Aggies defended their title by 17 shots, shooting 31-under and beating Sam Houston, who finished solo-second place at 14-under par.

Aggies shot rounds of 276-282-275 to finish at 31-under 833.

Sam Houston carded rounds of 283-289-278 for a solo-second finish at 14-under par. Followed by LSU with rounds of 286-279-290 for a third-place finish at 9-under par.

In the individual competition, Phichaksn Maichon, a junior Aggie from Thailand, shot 18-under par to secure victory over Michigan junior Hunter Thomson by eight shots in a wire-to-wire fashion, ultimately claiming the title.

Entering the final round with a one-shot lead at 11-under par, Maichon was pursued closely by Thomson at 10-under. Maichon completed his second bogey-free round of the tournament, registering seven birdies in the final round to card a 7-under 65. His total score of 18-under 198 equaled the tournament record set by former teammate Sam Bennett in 2022.

Maichon secured the title with rounds of 64-69-65, finishing at 18-under par and establishing an all-time record for the largest margin of victory with an 8-shot lead. In contrast, Thomson concluded with rounds of 68-66-72, securing a runner-up finish at 10-under par.

This is Maichon's second career collegiate victory, adding to his 2023 Bearkat Invitational title.
