Texas A&M Wins NCAA's
By Kickntrue on 6/1/09
Texas A&M won the men's NCAA Golf Championship this weekend, the first in the school's history. It's a shame that college golf is mostly ignored, because some of the brightest players in the PGA's history came from playing college golf, including Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods who both won individual titles while in school. Plus, the team sport doesn't lack any drama.
Hands on his hips, Texas A&M's Bronson Burgoon stood over a ball nestled deep in the rough and 120 yards from the hole.

Nothing much was riding on his next shot GÇö just a national championship.

With one mighty hack, Burgoon gave Texas A&M its first national title in men's golf. His gap wedge soared into the wind, landed on the green and tracked toward the hole before coming to rest just 3 inches away.
Eh, I guess if you're going to close out a tourney, that's one way to do it! I mean, it takes a bit of the drama out of the walk to the putt though. I'm sure Burgoon didn't mind. Congrats to the Aggies as well as Matt Hill, the North Carolina State sophomore who won the individual title.

Bronson has a scorecard from the Texas State 5a tournament posted in one of our local courses here in Austin, Roy Kizer. He shot a 61 that day and went on to win state. I guess he's pretty decent at golf. Congrats to A&M.
