Men’s golf brings home National Championship
As a golfer, I’m all too familiar with what 30 feet of grass between the ball and the hole looks like. It’s a long way. But it didn’t spook geography senior Dylan Frittelli Sunday at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif. When Dylan sank that putt to beat Alabama in the NCAA tournament, he and his four teammates in the tournament gave UT its first national championship in golf since Ben Crenshaw, Tom Kite, and company brought home back-to-back wins in 1971 and 1972.
The Longhorns had been ranked No. 1 since November, and Sunday night the Tower glowed orange to honor our newest national champions.
Congratulations to Coach John Fields and staff, and all 13 men on the team. You make us proud.
Hook ’em Horns!
