Welch Finishes 15th, Oklahoma Gets 2 Seed Heading into Match Play

Patrick Welch finished in a tie for 15th in the individual portion of the NCAA Championship on Monday afternoon at Grayhawk Golf Club in Arizona. 

Welch started the day just three shots off the lead, but a final round 77 sent him down the leaderboard. 

Oklahoma Sooners take the 2 seed.

Meanwhile, the Oklahoma Sooners finished second in the stroke play portion and will be the number two seed heading into Tuesday’s first round of match play. 

“We didn’t play our best today for sure. But when it was all said and done, we got the job done and checked our second box for the week and will head into match play. We’re looking forward to the challenge that waits for us. These guys did a great job all week long, especially early on to put us in a spot so that we didn’t have too much stress coming into today,” said Head Coach Ryan Hybl after the round. 

The Sooners will play seventh seeded Arizona State.

Welch will be the first tee time off and face Mason Andersen.  

Golf Channel will have coverage starting at noon time.
