Baylor club president Matt Brugner (2012 Westminster Christian Academy alumnus) said the team lost a few crucial players after last fall’s chamionship but gained talented replacements, too. Many teams fly in last-minute for the 36-hole championship weekend, but Baylor came early.

“We worked really hard in the past month or so getting everybody excited, but staying calm about it,” Brugner said. “Then just making a really good trip of it. Coming up early, getting a practice round in and taking our time to play well.”
