OK State Representing at The Masters
By mustang6560 on 4/6/11
Oklahoma State golf is well represented this week at The Masters with a total of four current and former players in the field, the most out of any other school.
There will be plenty of it at the Masters this week. Clemson orange and Texas orange and Illinois orange and Virginia orange and hint of Ireland orange, if you count that. But one school's colors will be a bit more prominent than the others as 99 of the luckiest human beings in the world tee it up on Thursday in Augusta.

Oklahoma State is sending four current or former players to the Masters: Hunter Mahan, Rickie Fowler, Bo Van Pelt and amateur Peter Uihlein, the most of any school. Arizona, Georgia Tech, Stanford and UNLV are all sending three.
Hopefully though, we don't see too much orange in the crowd. Oklahoma State orange and The Masters green? I just don't think those colors work very well.

OK State may have four in the field, but they only really have one that can contend - Hunter Mahan. Rickie is a rookie, Bo should just feel lucky he was invited and Peter is an amateur. So this leaves Hunter as the only OSU player with a shot and I don't think he'll finish inside the top 25.

The best looking colors are purple and gold of the Louisiana State University Tigers. As an alumni of the best school in the world, I would like to wish David Toms, a fellow Tiger, good luck this week.

I don't know. I think Uihlein could notch a top 20 finish.

A top 20 finish for an amateur is great. But, he's not going to win, which is what I talking about.

@mustang... from what I've read he's got the game to contend. He's a better bet than Sergio and some of the other pros.

I believe Auburn has one. He played really good last year, finishing top-50, I believe. He finished top-5 in another event.

Go Pokes!! And I take EXTERME offense to your saying "...Hunter Mahan. Rickie is a rookie, Bo should just feel lucky he was invited and Peter is an amateur. So this leaves Hunter as the only OSU player with a shot and I don't think he'll finish inside the top 25...", just because you penned the article, does not offer you authority status on the topic. Toms? Really? That is who you are laying your hopes on? OK, 500 PGA starts is nothig to snuff at. But really? Please. GO POKES!
