Big12 Golf action culminates in today's tournament at Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, KS.  The three day, four round format will have 36 holes today and 18 holes Tuesday and Wednesday.  Number one ranked Oklahoma State dominated the first 2 rounds with a five man team that includes U.S. Amateur champ and Masters tournament participant Peter Uihlein and Kevin Tway, son of Cowboy golf great and 1986 PGA Tournament champion Bob Tway.  OSU golfer Morgan Hoffman and Tway find themselves in first place at -1 Under.  Here is what the team leader board looks like after most of the first 36 holes:

  1. Oklahoma State +13
  2. Texas +18
  3. Texas A&M +20
  4. (Tied) Texas Tech +21,Oklahoma +21
  5. Obsolete Team/Who Cares?
  6. Obsolete Team/Who Cares?
  7. Kansas
  8. Baylor
  9. Missouri
  10. Kansas State
  11. Iowa State

If State can continue to shoot productively tomorrow when the weather will be better than today's drizzly conditions, they should have no problem winning their fifth-straight Big12 crown on Wednesday.  Surviving today will probably be the hardest part of the tournament as playing 36 holes in one day is a grueling task even in pleasant conditions, unless of course you play a beer-a-hole like Yachoff does.  Then your only problem in life is convincing the clubhouse to sell you an entire case of beer, plus a six pack. 

Tune in Wednesday for more Big12 tournament coverage.  You can also see a live, updated scoreboard here.
