The best 24 teams and 12 individuals will advance to the national championships in Fayetteville, Ark. That competition will begin May 17 at Blessings Golf Club.

Texas earned the top seed at the regional in Oklahoma after winning the Big 12 Championship tournament for the third year in a row. The Longhorns won the team title by a record 37 strokes and had the top four individual finishers as well.

Should Texas advance to the NCAA Championships, it would be fourth straight trip and the 28th in program history. Last season UT tied for 12th at the tournament.
