Texas A&M Falters at NCAA Men’s Golf Championships

The Aggies have ground to make up in order to make the tournament’s 54-hole cut on Sunday

The Texas A&M Aggies finished the first round of the 2022 NCAA Men’s Golf Championships in a tie for 24th place after the first round on Friday.

The Aggies — who were playing in the championships for the first time since 2019 — finished with a 20-over-par 300 to finish in a tie with Ohio State and Florida. The Aggies are six shots back of what would be the cut line on Sunday.

The Aggies have played in the NCAA Championships 33 times but haven’t won a national crown since 2009. The Aggies are out to advance to match play for the first time since 2019, which would allow them to compete for the team title. The Aggies were coming off a third-place finish at the Bryan Regional.
