ATLANTA — Fans will get the matchup they’ve been expecting for Wednesday at the East Lake Cup.
Aman Gupta’s 2-up victory over Wake Forest’s Eric Bae gave Oklahoma State a 3-2 triumph in Tuesday’s semifinals, making the Cowboys a ticket into the final against top-seeded Texas, which downed Vanderbilt, 4-0-1.
It will be a rematch of last year’s NCAA semifinal, where the Longhorns upset the top-ranked Cowboys, headed by Matthew Wolff and Viktor Hovland.
“We are playing basically the same group, other than Steven Chervony being replaced by Travis Vick, but apart from that it is pretty much the exact same group,” said Oklahoma State junior Austin Eckroat, who’ll get Texas stud Cole Hammer at Wednesday’s anchor suit. “But we’ve got a totally different lineup. We have four guys who got to watch; they believe exactly the identical way we did this past year, so they are likely to need some salvation. It’ll be interesting.”
On the women’s side, Auburn and Wake Forest will play for the title. The Tigers knocked off top seed Duke, 3-2, while the Demon Deacons defeated Arizona, 3-1-1.
The first matches will start Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. ET as inclement weather is expected during the day. The championship matches will go off No. 1 tee while the consolation matchups will begin on the back nine.
Golf Channel will broadcast live coverage starting at 10:30 a.m.
