The Alabama men’s golf team finished stroke play Monday right where they were seeded in sixth. Top seeded Oklahoma State finished in the lead. Beyond those two teams, it was a pretty chaotic first four rounds with 4-seed Vandy and 7-seed Florida getting cut while #28 Duke came out of nowhere to grab a spot in the 8-team playoff.
This works out really well for Alabama as they face #13 Texas Tech. Get past the Red Raiders and they get the winner of #15 Texas and #28 Duke later today. #2 TAMU faces #1 Oklahoma State. #9 Auburn gets #3 Oklahoma. Those winners face each other.
Play can be seen on the Golf Channel. Hit refresh. We will bring you updates as they arise.
- In the fifth pairing, the Duke player eagled the 18th to beat Texas, 3-2-0. The Blue Devils will face Alabama at 1:30pm CT.
- The Dam War Plainsmen Tiger Eagles defeat Okie.
- Okie State held off TAMU in a crazy seesaw match that finished 3-1-1. The Cowpokes will face that school from west Georgia next.
UPDATE: 5:18 pm CT - Bama beats Duke in dominating fashion! They move on to Wednesday’s Championship round which looks like it will be Okie State.
