The Cowboys left the competition in the dust once again on Wednesday in the final round of the Stillwater Regional tournament. The Cowboys held a seven-shot lead after day one, a 12-shot lead after day two, and eventually won the tournament by a staggering 19 strokes. The tournament win was OSU's eleventh regional title.
Oklahoma State redshirt-freshman Kristoffer Ventura held off UMKC's Antoine Rozner to win individual honors in the tournament. Stratton Nolan made a strong move late in the tournament to get to even par and a tie for the lead with back-to-back birdies on the 14th and 15th holes, but then triple bogeyed the 17th and fell out of contention.
The Cowboys were probably going to make the tournament after day one, as the top five teams in the regional advance to the NCAA Championship, and OSU is a very talented team. That being said, this was a dominating performance from the Cowboys, and should give them a confidence boost heading into the NCAA Championship, which begins May 27th in Eugene, Ore.
