ATLANTA – The University of Oklahoma’s Chris Gotterup was co-medalist at 4-under par, but Oklahoma and Oklahoma State tied for third at 4-over par Monday during the stroke play portion of the East Lake Cup at East Lake Golf Club.

The Cowboys shared third with Oklahoma at the par-72, 7,434-yard layout. Pepperdine was first at 5-under 283, while Arizona State was four back at 287.

OSU will take on the Sun Devils today while Oklahoma faces Pepperdine in a repeat of the 2021 NCAA title match. Live scoring is available all day at golfstat.com and Golf Channel will air live coverage of the East Lake Cup from 2-5 p.m. CDT.

For OSU, senior Eugenio Chacarra led the Cowboy starting five, firing a 2-under 70 to finish alone in fourth place. Junior Rayhan Thomas posted an even-par 72 to finish in the top 10, tying for eighth place. Junior Brian Stark signed for a 74 to tie for 12th place, while senior Rasmus Neergaard-Petersen carded a 76 to tie for 15th place. Junior Hazen Newman rounded out the lineup with a 78 to finish in 18th.

Gotterup picked up his first win as a Sooner with a bogey-free, 4-under 68 to take home a co-medalist finish. He was the only player in the field to card a bogey-free round.

“It’s awesome,” Gotterup said. “I haven’t won in a while…I feel like I’m bringing something back to school. They gave a lot in me over the last couple months, so I feel like I’m somewhat returning the favor a little bit, but we’ve got a long ways to go.”

Gotterup was co-medalist with Preston Summerhays of Arizona State. Gotterup’s win marks the second-consecutive year a Sooner won the stroke play portion of the East Lake Cup after Patrick Welch’s victory in 2020.

“Chris is a big-time player, he loves the moment,” head coach Ryan Hybl said. “He’s got true belief in like who he is as a player and what he can do, so it’s not surprising. None of our guys are surprised that he comes out here and has a chance to win.”

Stephen Campbell Jr. was the only other Sooner under par, and he earned a top-5 finish with a 1-under 71. Logan McCallister tied for 12th with a 74 while Jaxon Dowell’s 7-over 79 earned 19th place. Freshman Andrew Goodman shot 81.
