— On a day when their tee shots went straight and their irons were crisp, the putts didn't fall for the Oklahoma Sooners.

Notching just six birdies as a group, the Sooners finished a par-filled third round at 3 over — dropping them to 5 over for the tournament and ending their season tied for 11th at the NCAA Championships.

“We played really good as a team, but couldn't find a way to make any birdies,” said Oklahoma coach Ryan Hybl. “It wasn't for a lack of trying, because our guys gave it all we had, we just didn't have the firepower to kick the door open.”

Michael Schoolcraft had three of the Sooners' six birdies en route to an even-par round of 70. Beau Titsworth also shot 70, with Charlie Saxon shooting 71. Seniors Will Kropp and Abraham Ancer finished their Oklahoma careers with rounds of 72 and 75, respectively.

Titsworth, a freshman, was the Sooners' top individual across 54 holes of stroke play, finishing at 2 under and in a tie for 22nd in the 156-player field.
