Oklahoma finished seventh at the 2020 Southern Highlands Collegiate, the team’s final tournament before the rest of the 2020 season was canceled. During the streak, the Sooners won 12 tournaments, the most successful two-year stretch in program history.
Head coach Ryan Hybl and his team will look to rebound at the Big 12 Match Play Championship, slated for Oct. 17-19 at the Golf Club at Houston Oaks.
