Texas’ fall season has come to a close. The Longhorns placed eighth at the Fighting Illini Invitational, tied for fourth at the Nike Golf Collegiate Invitational and tied for sixth at the U.S. Collegiate Championship. Texas’ fourth tournament would have been The Royal Oaks Intercollegiate, but it was canceled because of inclement weather.
The Longhorns are slated to play seven tournaments in the spring season before traveling to Stillwater for the Big 12 Championships from April 29-May 1. Texas will begin its spring season Jan. 29-30 at the Arizona Intercollegiate at the Sewallo Golf Club in Tucson, Arizona.
