Texas Longhorns above the cut line after the second round of NCAA golf

The Texas Longhorns scored the same for the second straight day at the NCAA Men’s Golf Championships at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Saturday.

Texas shot an 11 on par 291 for the second straight round, and the Longhorns are now 22 on par 582. By the end of the second round, Texas was tied for eighth and above the cut line.

Texas is now starting to play better after finishing fourth at the Norman Regional to advance to the NCAA Championships for the 15th consecutive tournament.

Parker Coody again led the way in Texas on Saturday, this time reducing his score to an even par 70 and finishing with a total of two rounds of 2 on the par 142. With all five Longhorns over par, Texas has a hard time catching up. Texas hasn’t won a national title since 2012.

Four other Longhorns played Saturday and included Cole Hammer (71-75—146), Travis Vick (76-71—147), Pierceson Coody (74-75—147) and Mason Nome (77-75—152). Vick will play the US Open next month at the Country Club in Brookline, Mass.

Conditions were better at Grayhawk on Friday, so overall scores were lower.

Oklahoma took the lead with one of two under par in the second round, as the Sooners shot 5-under and have a two-shot lead over Vanderbilt, who led after the first round. Oklahoma State — the other team with below-average scoring on Saturday — finished third, four shots away, while North Carolina and Pepperdine rounded out the Top 5.
