Heavy rains in the area cancelled the final round of the Boilermaker Invitational on Sunday as Oklahoma men’s golf finished in third place with a two-round 562 (-14). The two-day, 54-hole tournament was held at the Kampen Golf Course in West Lafayette, Ind.

The Sooners head into postseason play with six straight top-three finishes as a team. OU also concludes the regular season with three tournament victories for the second consecutive year. The Sooners will enter the postseason as one of six teams nationally with at least three team victories this season.

Illinois State was declared the tournament winner with a 36-hole 560 (-16), followed by host Purdue one shot back at 561 (-15). Northwestern placed fourth at 570 (-6) with Michigan in fifth place at 574 (-2).

Playing as an individual unattached from team scoring, junior Riley Casey claimed sole possession of second place with a two-round 137 (-7). The runner-up finish marked Casey’s best finish of the season.

Senior Brad Dalke recorded a 36-hole total of 140 (-4) to tie for ninth place. Dalke earned his second top-10 finish of the season. Redshirt junior Quade Cummins and freshman Patrick Welch tied for 12th place with an overall 141 (-3).

Senior Blaine Hale shared 22nd place with a two-round 143 (-1). Junior Garett Reband tied for 30th place with an overall 144 (E).

Up next, the Sooners look to defend their conference title at the 2019 Big 12 Championship. The three-day event will run April 26-28 at The Greenbriar in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va.
