Former Spirit Players at the Big 12 Championship

July 30th 2010 -

Whispering Pines Golf Club played host to the 2010 Men's Big 12 Championship April 24-26, and the depth of talent and great golf didn't disappoint those lucky enough to watch these players.  Although the race seemed tight early on during the grueling 36-hole day on Friday, Oklahoma State showed everyone why they have won 5 of the last 6 Big 12 Championships.  OSU had 4 players in the top 7, including Peter Uihlein, Sean Einhaus, Morgan Hoffman and Kevin Tway.

 

With the total average score for the week at 74.37, the course played slightly more difficult on Sunday then during the first 2 rounds on Friday.based in part on the dryer, firmer conditions, as well as a slight increase in wind, however this didn't curtail the OSU players as they finished Sunday with 4 of their 5 players at par or better.

 

The Aggies continued their good play by finishing alone at second, led by their number one player (and recent Spirit Men's Team Champion) Andrea Pavan.  Pavan was also recently named to the Palmer Cup Team, the international collegiate event played annually between college players from the US and Great Britain & Ireland.

 

The WHGA and Whispering Pines were once again proud to showcase the number-1 venue in the state of Texas to a truly talented group of golfers playing in a showcase collegiate championship.
