The Oklahoma State golf team’s seasons are likely over because of the latest announcements from the Big 12 conference and the NCAA. 

Both golf teams were scheduled to compete in tournaments on March 16-17. The women were scheduled to compete in South Carolina and the men in Tucson, Arizona. 

The Big 12 announced at 3:19 p.m. on Thursday that all Spring sports are suspended until March 29, but the NCAA announced that all championships are canceled for Spring sports, which would include golf.

“(March 12), NCAA President Mark Emmert and Board of Governors canceled the Division I men’s and women’s 2020 basketball tournaments, as well as all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships,” the NCAA said in a press release. “This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat, our ability to ensure the events do not contribute to spread of the pandemic and impracticality of hosting such events at any time during this academic year given ongoing decisions by other entities.” 

With this news the Cowboy and Cowgirl golf season are effectively over due to COVID-19. 

If the season were to continue after March 29 then the Cowboys would have two remaining tournaments before the postseason and the Cowgirls would have one.

Both teams have two top-5 finishes in their three tournaments.

Unless the NCAA grants senior’s extra eligibility Ferdinand Muller and Michelle Forsland have played their last events for OSU.
