Oklahoma State’s men’s golf team defeated Stanford 3-2 to advance to the NCAA Championship final in Hutchinson, Kansas, on Tuesday.

The Cowboys will face Alabama in the championship match on Wednesday.

OSU got a 3-and-2 win from Zachary Olsen to tie Stanford at one point each.

The key came in Talor Gooch’s match against Maverick McNealey.

The two had to go to a third playoff hole to decide their match, and Gooch sank about a 45-foot putt for birdie to win the match and give OSU a 2-1 lead.

Stanford had a chance to possibly get even, when Viraat Badhwar had a 10-foot putt on the 17th hole to square his match against Wyndham Clark.

Badhwar missed, though, giving Clark the 1-up win, and the Cowboys a 3-2 victory.

OSU will be facing their former head coach in the final on Wednesday.

Former OSU head coach Mike McGraw is now an assistant coach at Alabama, which is trying to repeat as national champion.
