The Baylor men’s golf is No. 4 in the preseason Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll released Friday, giving the Bears their highest preseason ranking in program history.
Baylor received 398 points in the preseason poll, trailing only No. 1 Oklahoma State (507), No. 2 Vanderbilt (467) and No. 3 Oklahoma (460).
Baylor enters its fourth season under head coach Mike McGraw, and the Bears are coming off back-to-back NCAA Championship appearances for the second time in program history.
The Bears were co-champions at the 2017 NCAA Stanford Regional, claiming the first regional title in Baylor men’s golf history. Baylor advanced to match play for the first time in program history at the 2017 NCAA Championship, finishing tied for fifth place after falling in a quarterfinal playoff against eventual national champion Oklahoma.
