UT tops Texas Tech in Massive 12 match-play last


HOCKLEY — Texas Tech’s Kyle Hogan and Calum Scott won their matches, but No. 5  Texas defeated the 10th-ranked Red Raiders 3-2-1 in Wednesday’s championship match of the Big 12 Match Play Tournament at Houston Oaks.

Hogan beat Will Thomson 5 & 4, Scott edged Travis Vick 1-up and Tech’s Baard Skogen finished all square with Parker Coody. 

The Longhorns Mason Nome beat Andy Lopez 3 & 2, Cole Hammer downed Garrett Martin by the same score, and Pierceson Coody edged Ludvig Aberg 2 & 1.

Aberg, who is No. 3 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, finished the tournament 4-1, and Hogan wound up 3-1-1.

Tech advanced to the championship match earlier Wednesday by vanquishing top-ranked Oklahoma 3-1-2 with wins from Lopez, Scott and Aberg and an all-square match from Skogen. That made the Red Raiders 4-0 in pool play.

Oklahoma beat Oklahoma State 5-1 in the third-place match.

The event was the last on Tech’s fall schedule. The Red Raiders return to play in February at the Amer Ari in Waikoloa, Hawaii.
