The golf match I'd like to see, but can't -- OSU vs. Augusta State
Have you been keeping up with the NCAA men’s golf championships this year? It’s kind of tough when it’s not on TV, which is a shame, because there’s a really good story brewing here.
A couple of years ago, the NCAA made a change to the format with the final eight teams going into match play. This weekend, it’s down to two – powerhouse Oklahoma State University vs. Augusta State for the title.
In case you’re not too familiar with Augusta State, its mascot is the Jaguars. It’s also where PGA Tour player Vaughn Taylor, who lost in a playoff at the Shell Houston Open this year, played his college golf.
They’re playing this monumental match Sunday at Pete Dye’s The Honors Course near Chattanooga, Tenn. Oklahoma State defeated Oregon 3-1-1 in the semis. Little Augusta State beat Florida State, 4-1, to set up Sunday’s showdown.
It’s a classic David-Goliath matchup.
Augusta State overcame all kinds of odds, but can’t be discounted. The OSU Cowboys are in a mighty familiar position. It’s too bad we can’t watch it.
