SANTA CRUZ, Calif. -- The top-ranked Texas Men’s Golf team claimed a four-stroke victory at the Western Intercollegiate on Sunday afternoon at Pasatiempo Golf Club for its seventh win of the season.
Freshman Jordan Spieth (72-67-71=210, E) led the Longhorns on the individual leaderboard in a tie for fifth place to mark his sixth top-five finish since arriving on the Forty Acres.

Texas shot a 5-over 355 and 1-under 349 Saturday’s first and second rounds before carding a 6-over 356 in Sunday’s final round. Stanford (353-360-351=1064) and UCLA (351-364-352=1067) finished in second and third places, respectively.
UT was the only school in the 14-team field with all six players finishing among the top-25
Junior Julio Vegas (71-69-71) carded a 54-hole score of 1-over 211 and finished tied for seventh place. Senior Alex Moon (71-70-72) finished tied for 11th place at 3-over 213 and senior Dylan Frittelli (67-73-75) was two strokes back at 215 to tie for 14th.
