DALLAS — Call it a Royal flush.
The Baylor men’s golf team tallied a 19-stroke win at the Royal Oaks Invitational, claiming the tournament title for the second straight year. The Bears dominated the event, closing with a 3-under 281 in Tuesday’s final round.
Baylor has now won 10 tournament titles under fourth-year coach Mike McGraw, and the 19-stroke margin was the second-biggest of his tenure, topped only by last year’s 32-stroke win at Royal Oaks.
Cooper Dossey won the tournament, overcoming windy conditions to shoot 2-under par 69 in the final round to finish at 11-under 202, four strokes better the field.
“I think this year and last year proves that our team likes this golf course,” Dossey said. “So, I think all of us didn’t care if it was windy. We wanted the wind, we want it to be as tough as it can be, because our team plays well in the wind, especially having it back at home every day.”
Junior Braden Bailey shot even-par 71 in the final round and finished at 6-under 207 to finish third. Junior Garrett May and senior Matthew Perrine tied for sixth at 4-under 209.
With its fall season complete, Baylor will next compete Jan. 29-30 at the Arizona Intercollegiate at Sewailo Golf Club.
