The Longhorns used a 17-under par 274 in the second round Saturday to help secure a first place finish in the Bayou City Collegiate Championship in Humble, Texas. Freshman Brandon Stone took home the individual championship with a 9-under 207.
Texas took the early lead after the first round, leading Baylor by one with a 3-under 285. However, it was in the second round where the Longhorns made their move. Heading into the clubhouse after the second round, the Longhorns had a 13 shot lead over the Bears.
In the final round, the Longhorns were only one of two teams to shoot an under par score, ending the final round 5-under par and winning the tournament with a 22-under 842, 21 shots ahead of second-place Houston.
Stone was tied for 16th after the first round, but strong second and third rounds, including a 5-under 67 in the final round, helped him take the individual title.
The win is the first for the Longhorns since the Carpet Capital Collegiate to open the season. Texas will compete next in the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters March 8-10.
