And LSU Takes the Men's Title

Last week Stanford's women locked up their NCAA tournament. This week the men of Louisiana State University finished off their improbable run to victory just as impressively.

LSU men's golf team with NCAA trophy

This is a team that barely made the match play portion of the event but cruised through the quarters and semis, and taking the trophy by winning the finals 4-1 over the USC Trojans.

Ben Taylor of the Tigers sealed the deal when he went eagle-par on the last two holes to come from behind and win his match against Bobby Gojuangco 1up. You can see the NCAA's wrap-up at this link to ncaa.com but you can also see that beautiful second shot at the par-5 17th in this video from GC. (The photo above is from that post as well.)



And with that the NCAA golf season ends. The Stanford women won for the first time in their school's history while the LSU men won for the first time in 60 years. I don't know if that counts as parity but it should certainly give every school program some hope going forward.
