Aman Gupta is staring down the end of his college career, and he wants a national title before leaving Oklahoma State.

Aman Gupta doesn’t want to lose again.

Gupta, a senior on the OSU men’s golf team, has been close to winning the national championship in his collegiate career, but hasn’t been able to win.

Gupta has been on OSU teams who have lost two semifinal matches in match play and had one NCAA championship canceled due to COVID-19.

With just at most two tournaments left for Gupta in his college career he’s viewed this season as a win at all costs.

“This year going forward at the end of the year I (want) a national championship before I head out in the summer,” Gupta said. “I’ve had two semi finals (finishes) and I don’t want a third. That’s the goal for the team and for me.”

Gupta’s run toward the elusive championship continues on May 16-18 at the Scarlet Course in Columbus, Ohio.

The No. 2-ranked Cowboys enter the regional as the top-ranked seed alongside No. 11 Georgia Tech as the second-ranked seed. The Cowboys have won five straight regional titles, and hold a nation leading 15 total regional titles. The top five teams in the regional advance to the National Championship.

It’s the sixth time the Cowboys have played a regional at the Scarlet course; they've won twice, most recently in 2918, and have not finished worse than force.
