Sooners Win 

The #2 Oklahoma men’s golf team held off a late charge from #1 Florida State and Georgia Tech to win the inaugural Calusa Cup by eight strokes on Tuesday. 

“Extremely proud of how our guys competed all week. Finishing off the Calusa Cup with the low-final round continues to build our confidence. The best part is that everyone contributed in a major way this week, and it gave us a great win on a difficult golf course,” said Head Coach Ryan Hybl after the round. 

The Sooners (-5, 859) were the only team under-par at the par-72 Calusa Pines Golf Club, led by three golfers inside the top 10, including Logan McAllister who finished as the runner-up. 

The win marked the team’s third of the season, tied for second-most in a single season in program history and it’s Ryan Hybl‘s 28th win as head coach. 

Next up for the Sooners is the Aggie Invitational on Friday in College Station, Texas.
