Coody was 5-up through six holes and cruised from there to give Texas its first point, and he spoke post-round:

Parker's brother, Pierceson, earned Texas' second point with a 2 and 1 win over Preston Summerhays.

Coody held the lead after the second hole and never relinquished it. However, Summerhays kept Coody at arm's length for the remainder of the match and won the 16th hole to cut the deficit to one.

However, Coody bounced back to win the 17th hole and the match. He credited his putting post-match.

Arizona State's Mason Anderson used a hot putter for his 3 and 2 win over Cole Hammer:

ASU's David Puig and Texas' Mason Nome fought an incredible battle in which neither player was up more than one hole all day. The two found themselves all square after nine of the 18 holes, including the very last one thanks to this clutch Puig putt:

However, Travis Vick's 1-up win over Arizona State's Cameron Sisk ended up being the difference. He executed a great putt on the last hole, and the tap-in wasn't needed after it was conceded.

It was an emotional win for Texas, which found much inspiration in 14-year-old fan Sonny Santrelli:
