• Oregon won its first team national championship in men’s or women’s golf history and its first team NCAA title outside of track and cross country since 1939.

• Oregon is the fifth team to win men’s team NCAA championship as host - the first since Oklahoma in 1989 - and the just second team to win both the individual and team title as host.

• Oregon was ranked 20th nationally entering the week, the lowest of any champion under the new format.

• This was the fifth runner-up finish for Texas at NCAA Championships in the modern era, and the first since 1994.

• The Longhorns trailed 0-1 before the final began after Beau Hossler (shoulder) conceded his match. The program lost in its second match-play final appearance under the new format (won in 2012).

• Texas lost as a No. 1 match play seed. No top seed has ever won the NCAA title on the men's or women's side since the NCAA switched to the new format in 2009.
