Texas Wins 2014 USGA Men’s State Team Championship

Last Updated on Tuesday, 07 October 2014 22:20 Tuesday, 07 October 2014 22:15

altFRENCH LICK, Indiana (Scott Lipsky/USGA) — Texas captured a record-fourth USGA Men's State Team Championship, posting a total score of 4-under-par 428 to edge Florida by three strokes at the par-72, 6,891-yard Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort.

The trio of Zach Atkinson, Colby Harwell, and Aaron Hickman entered the final round with a three-stroke cushion, and saw their advantage grow to as many as seven strokes early in the round, but a late charge by Florida briefly knotted things at the top of the leader board before Texas pulled away at the end. Texas posted a final-round score of 1-over 145, its highest of the championship, but a 1-under 71 from Atkinson provided enough cushion to claim the James R. Hand Trophy for the first time since 2007.
