The Texas Longhorns men’s golf team led wire to wire as they won the John Burns Intercollegiate in Kauai, Hawaii, on Friday. Texas shot 844, 20 under par, to finish five strokes ahead of California. Texas A&M was third, nineteen shots behind Texas.
Beau Hossler made a late charge to move up seven places and tie teammate Gavin Hall for medalist honors. Hossler shot a 4-under-par 68 Friday to finish the tournament at 210, 6 under par. His win made him the ninth player in Texas history to win at least three times in a season.
It was a great bounce-back performance by Hossler, who shot a 75 in the second round to fall to eighth place. He had just one bogey in the third round after having six in the second. He had five birdies in the final round, four on the back nine.
Hall improved on his 71 from Thursday by a stroke to finish tied for the top spot for his first win as a Longhorn. He made par on each of the first eight holes and birdied the ninth. Two birdies on the back nine earned him medalist honors. If not for a bogey on the 17th, he would have been alone at the top of the standings.
K.K. Limbhasut of Cal and Skye Inakoshi of Hawaii also tied for first place.
Doug Ghim had a top-10 finish as well for Texas, shooting 2 under for the tournament and tying for seventh place.
Scottie Scheffler finished tied for 26th at 2 over while Branson Davis was alone in 48th place at 7 over.
Steven Chervony also tied for 26th place, competing as an individual for Texas. Taylor Funk also competed as an individual and finished tied for 41st.
Kalena Preus and Tayler Termeer also competed as individuals for Texas and finished tied for 53rd and 57th respectively.
