LA QUINTA, Calif. – Oklahoma State’s men’s golf team posted a 284 on Wednesday to earn its fourth victory of the year at The Prestige at PGA West at PGA West’s Greg Norman Course.

The No. 1-ranked Cowboys, who shared the top spot on the leaderboard with Oregon entering Wednesday’s second round, used their even-par score to finish at 1-under 567, edging Pepperdine by a shot at the par-71, 7,100-yard layout. Oregon was third at 571.

The event was shortened to 36 holes after Monday’s round was canceled due to high winds.

A pair of Cowboys shared fourth place at 2-under 140. Sophomore Viktor Hovland followed and opening 69 with a 71 to get to his total, while junior Zach Bauchou carded a pair of 70s.

Senior Kristoffer Ventura also earned a top-10 finish, tying for 10th place at 143 after signing for rounds of 69 and 74.
